There are many reasons for a skipped period, pregnancy being only one of them. Some other etiologies include having a cycle where ovulation didn’t occur, weight fluctuation (either gain or loss), change in your exercise level, etc. If you still don’t get your period by the time of your next cycle, call your doctor. There are ways to regulate your cycle so, if you remain concerned, call your doctor
