Might be pregnant or: While most pregnancy tests will be positive about a week after missing a period (if you are pregnant of course) sometimes it takes a bit longer so if your period does not start in a few days check again and use first morning urine (more accurate). It is not unusual for periods to be late even if not pregnant- this happens for various reasons and is usually not serious, time will tell...
