I'm 4 days late on my period and I took

Patient

Q: I'm 4 days late on my period and I took a pregnancy test and it came out negative why isn't it coming I've been so depressed and stressed about could that be the reason?

Doctor

A:   Hello,
Thanks for the query.

Yes, depression and stress and lead to hormonal changes and delay the cycles. Repeat the pregnancy test after a week for accurate results. If negative, wait for the cycle for a week. In case the cycles do not resume, see a gynecologist for an examination and withdrawal bleeding medications.
Meanwhile, drink plenty of water, reduce stress and have a healthy diet .

Hope this helped.
Regards
