You may not have ovulated and no ovulation usually means no period. It's common and will happen to most women at least once during their reproductive years. Just because it's never happened to you before doesn't mean it can't/won't.

If you miss a second period and are still getting negative test results, see your doctor.

Completely not true. A lot of women don't ovulate and still have periods. Your period comes whether you ovulate or not, it's the shedding of your lining if nothing implants into it.

To An_252078, your period can be late for lots of reasons, a change in hormones, or maybe you had a stressful month. I'm sure your period not coming is adding stress. You may just be having a longer cycle this month. You could wait a couple more days and test again, if its negative you could call your dr to see if there is something else going on.
