About 11 months late: If you are pregnant, your period will be about 11 months late (it will come after the baby is born). To see if pregnant, one can just do a home pregnancy test 3 weeks after sex or 1 week after missing a period. If one's normal regular period comes, then there is no pregnancy. Home urine tests are accurate, inexpensive, and sold in stores everywhere.

Yes: If you are pregnant, you won't have a period for 10 or 11 months. If you are 3 days late, a home pregnancy test is usually accurate to make the diagnosis. Best wishes!
