Yeah, you should go for the blood test. If it's negative then you know, and if it happens again next month, then maybe your body is just making some changes and you GYN can maybe help to get you straightened around..

Were your periods regular in the past? You body could also be adjusting since you recently had surgery and the stress of that.  However if you do not get your period in a few days, and there is a possibility of pregnancy I would take another HPT, and then schedule a blood test if no period still and (-)HPT.

Yes i did have unprotected sex. well after my surgery i was late only 5 days but my doctor told me that my cycle should be the same but his month is being 10day as of today.. I guess I just have to wait and see if I am pregnant

Thanks for you Help!!

Was it unprotected sex? ...
I'd wait... an ultrasound seems kind of excessive at the time, even if you possibly pregnant, it takes up to a week for anything to show up in your bloodstream/urine.

>I really don't have a regular period... and stress plays a really big factor with me. Being 8 days late doesn't seem like a big deal unless you have a cycle that's always on the dot.

Maybe he was worried you were getting run down.  Prenatal
vitamins have extra iron and folic acid in them.

It might be a good idea to take the vitamins before you go to
bed.  That way you won't notice the nausea.  Ginger root or
ginger ale is good for what "ails" your stomach.
