I missed my period last month and took two pregnancy tests. The first one turned out negative and had an evaporation line, and the second also came out negative. So does that mean it is confirmed that I am not pregnant and it is just missed period or PCOS (polycystic ovary syndrome)?
Urine pregnancy tests are 90 % accurate. If you have doubt, you can confirm it by blood hCG test (human chorionic gonadotropin). Yes, it is quite possible that sometimes periods might get delayed by one or two weeks because of some stress or recent illness. It can also delay due to medical disorders like PCOS (polycystic ovary syndrome), thyroid abnormality, or anemia. If you have had irregular periods for over three months, then you should do an ultrasound pelvis, thyroid profile, and complete blood count (CBC) to rule out any pathology.
Hope this information helps you.
