Hello There. I can understand your concern. sometimes the periods can get delayed even upto a month, so it cannot be said just based on your missed periods that you are pregnant. repeat the test after 10 days if you still do not get the periods. also you will need to get a ultrasound of the abdomen and pelvis done. kindly consult a obstetrician and gynecologist for further evaluation and management. best regards, Dr. Anil kumar jain.
