Hello, Are you breastfeeding? If yes then you are likely to have missed periods due to breastfeeding. Since the pregnancy test result is negative, you are not pregnant. Also, use a contraception during intercourse to avoid pregnancy, which can even occur in absence of periods. Visit a gynecologist for further evaluation and management. You can also visit my clinic International Fertility Centre located in New Delhi for further examination. My clinic offers varied gynecological treatments and services and ensures that you have a successful treatment. You can also share your contact details to reach you.

If you are breastfeeding, periods may be irregular for a while. It's normal. Pregnancy can occur at this time and you need to use contraception to prevent it. As of now, you are not pregnant. You may opt for condom, progesterone only pills or IUCD. These are safe with lactation. You may see your gynaecologist to clarify your doubts and discuss about method best for you

Hello there. 

I can understand your concern. 
It could be a normal phenomenon. 
You need not worry.
But i would still suggest you to consult a gynaecologist in person for further evaluation and management. 
Let her examine you once.
Best regards.
