Wait it out: If you did the test correctly, at 7 days after the due date for period, you are not likely to be pregnant. A period may be missed due to anovulatory cycle. If you do not get your next period, it would be time to see your doctor. See this site for more info.

Depends on history: Most people tend to have regular periods every month, occuring every 28-35 days with bleeding lasting for a fixed predictable duration. However, some people can have irregular periods that vary each month. You may elect to wait and see if you just missed your period (could be due to multiple reasons).

My period was 2 weeks early last time and now I'm a few days late, what can I do to make my period come?

Hormones or time: Combination birth control pills (estrogen and progesterone) can make an irregular cycle more regular. Otherwise though there is nothing that can or should be taken to induce a period. Maintaining a healthy weight helps regulate the menstrual cycle. Extreme amounts of exercise can delay periods. Some healthy women simply are irregular though, and if this is bothersome birth control helps. ...Read more

No worries: There are a number of reasons why your period could have been irregular this past month - this is usually due to hormonal changes, however. This could be from a change in your usual activities/schedule, stress or emotional levels. This is likely a fluke. But if your period persists irregularly, then consider discussing with your doctor (sometimes thyroid or PCOS). Best wishes. ...Read more

I've been getting my period for four years now. I am healthy. Should my period be coming on a perfectly regular schedule? I am often a week early/late

Sadly, no: It can definitely be normal to have slight irregularity to one's cycle. Extremes of weight (thin/heavy) can sometimes contribute to this. As can thyroid issues. If it bothers you, birth control can help regulate, otherwise, so long as you're having a cycle on average every 3-5 weeks, it's normal. ...Read more

Monitor closely: Your normal cycle has at least been temporarily disrupted. While this could be related to a pregnancy (easily checked with a home pregnancy test) it could also just be a random "hiccup". If you happen to be on the birth control pill this sort of thing is actually quite common. ...Read more

Pregnancy worries?: It can be hard to tell if a woman is pregnant because some of the symptoms seen in early pregnancy can also happen in non-pregnant women. A urine pregnancy test gives a reliable result if done correctly. One can test about 3 weeks after sex (3 weeks after when conception might have occurred), or 1 week after missing a period. An Ob-Gyn doctor can evaluate any persistent or worrisome symptoms. ...Read more
