August 31st it return for another 6 days. My next cycle should have started on September 28 now here I am 13 days later with no period and a negative pregnancy test. I'm not stress I very never missed a period before except for the times I was pregnant, can you tell me if it's possible that I may be pregnant all this time and still get a negative test???

Hi Anon and thanks for your question.

If you had sex July 22-29, and have had two periods since then as well as a negative pregnancy test, you are not pregnant. It's possible that the stress of travel, or other factors in your life, have impacted your cycle. You are also close to the age when many women enter perimenopause which can also affect the timing and frequency of menstrual cycles. Hope that helps!
