    Hello madam..a 2day delay is not unusual.Even mild stress or illness can affect your cycle.whats Is your normal cycle length.are you taking typhoid or thyroid drugs.Hyperthyroidism can cause your periods to become scanty or disappear for a while till your thyroid hormones normalize.if you ain't sexually active,then give it till next week.It will likely show up.if not,do a Pregnancy test and then let's take it from there

    Hello madam.Thank you for the follow up.Last start with your cycle...a full cycle is from day one you see a bleed to a day before another bleed comes.If you have been counting theses dates over the past few months and you sure it's 30-31 days then that's great. second thing you should then know is that you will most likely ovulate on day 16 or 17 counting from day 1 of your bleed.It's best to start having sex about day 12 from first day of your bleed through to day 18 counting from the 1st day of your period.This I am assuming your cycle length is 30-31 days.
