Patient

Doctor

A:   Hello,
Thank you for your medical query at AskTheDoctor.com

I understand your concern.
Periods can be late due to stress, hormonal imbalance, thyroid problems, or PCOD.
Since the pregnancy tests have been negative and considering they are 95 % sensitive, you should not worry about pregnancy.
If you do not get your period within the next 1 week, you can consult your gynecologist to get a detailed evaluation done.

Hope this was helpful,
Regards.
