Dear Sylvia

I would suggest that you do some form of pregnancy testing as soon as possible. There are several other causes for delayed or absent menses and in particular the presence of an ovarian cyst either due to ovulatory failure or persistent corpus luteum may be present and this should be ruled out by pelvic ultrasound scanning.
