See answer: There are many reasons for a delayed period other than pregnancy and include anything that causes physical, mental, or emotional stress: illness, anxiety, depression, weight issues, medications, over-exercising, or even a change in one's daily routine. Recommend a repeat pregnancy test 1 week after the first negative test and a call to your md if period does not occur or symptoms persist or worsen.
