Rule out pregnancy: If you had unprotected sexual-vaginal intercourse with a fertile man,..."were 8 days late", there is a possibility that you may be pregnant despite what you describe as a "menstrual flow". A blood betaHCG pregnancy test should help rule out or confirm pregnancy and provide an answer to your question. If it is negative, a Gyn evaluation may be valuable in a few weeks or so.
