Hello Princess, Thank you for the question.
First of all you need to know that late menstruation is not always caused by pregnancy. Menstruation can be delayed if there is an imbalance of reproductive hormones in your body. The following things can cause a late menstruation:
changes in weight drastically
have high stress levels
experiencing certain medical conditions
thyroid hormone disorders
polycystic ovary syndrome
To find out whether a woman is pregnant or not, a pregnancy test is needed which can be in the form of a test pack or blood test. Both are aimed at detecting the human chorionic gonadotropin (hCG) hormone which is formed when pregnancy occurs. Blood tests can be done early to detect pregnancy. If you are pregnant, then this blood test will give you the results of the hCG hormone levels but if you are not pregnant, of course the results will be negative. You may take a pregnancy test in the form of a blood test. If this test is still negative and you haven't had your period for the next week, you can repeat the test pack / blood test one week later or immediately consult an obstetrician and gynecologist for further tests.
Please also do the following suggestions:
improve your diet, avoid strict diets and increase your consumption of nutritious foods
exercise regularly but avoid excessive physical activity
manage stress well
Hope this information is helpful.
