Hi and welcome.

Your previous b-hcg test is considered negative as it was less than 5 mIU/ml. If you had sex since last period you had a chance of getting pregnant in this cycle as you are late for periods. You can test if it is negative then there is possibility of hormonal imbalance which can lead to irregular periods. In that case i would suggest you to visit your gynecologist for thorough examination and hormone tests.

Let me know if you have further questions.

I didnt have sex after 20th may. in that case whats the reason of such delay in periods?
Expert:  Dr Uzair replied 4 months ago.

Thanks for reply.

In that case hormonal imbalance is a possibility as i mentioned. As you had irregular cycles for last two to three months you should get hormone levels checked and examination by a gynecologist.
