In brief: Some

Some women do start having irregular or skipped periods at this age.
You have done exactly the right things; taking a pregnancy test with plan to repeat is appropriate. But it may be that you are skipping a period. A word of caution: please read your new insurance plan language carefully. With some plans, if you mention any past concerns that you waited to address, it will not be covered as it would be considered pre-existing.
