Period Late by 2 days...Is there a way to induce it? Are EPTs accurate?

So my cycle usually lasts 30-31 days. This time I’m 2 days late for my period and starting to get nervous.
My Fiance only fingers me, our genitals never touched directly (we’re very careful about this)
and I took 2 First Response pregnancy tests this morning-both were negative. (Can I trust these?)

Is there a way to induce my period? While I know pregnancy through fingering is not probable, I’m stressed just thinking about it.

Thank You kindly for your comments :)

Hi Jenna and thanks for your question.

Having irregular periods is very common, especially for younger women. The start date, flow, length and other factors can easily vary from one month to another.

In terms of home pregnancy tests, while there is a high degree of reliability, they aren't fool proof. You can learn more from this article for the EmpowHER community, Home Pregnancy Tests: Are They Reliable?

Given the information you've provided, the most likely scenario is that your period is simply late and will be here soon. Hope that helps!
