I started ground flaxseed and period did not come. Already 5 days late. I used 1tbps per day for 4 days. And stopped. I am concerned. What should I do?

In brief: Pregnancy test

It's pretty unlikely that the flaxseed had anything to do with your period being late.
If you haven't done so already, do a pregnancy test. If you are having sex, pregnancy is the most likely cause of a late period.
