As : As doctors, the first thing we do when we hear that a fertile woman is having a missed period or abnormal spotting, we check a pregnancy test. You can either take a home pregnancy test as long as it has been 5- 6 weeks since your last normal period, or you can go see your doctor and they can test you. A home pregnancy test is 97% accurate if taken a week or more after the missed period and doctor's test is accurate around the time your period should come. You may have taken your test a little too early, so you may want to try another one in a few days just to be certain. There are other reasons besides pregnancy that can cause a woman to miss a period or be irregular such as: stress, diet, excessive exercise or a hormone imbalance such as with a thyroid disorder or polycystic ovarian syndrome. If you continue to have an irregular cycle, you should give your doctor or your ob/gyne a call. Good luck! ...Read more

Many things: Most commonly it is from not ovulating. If your pregnancy test is negative and you haven't had a period in over three months, then you need to see your doctor about some medication so the lining of your womb doesn't become too thick.
