Not possible: In order to get pregnant you need penis to vagina penetration (and ideally ejaculation by the male). Or if you are treated by a doctor with intrauterine insemination (IUI). Your period can be delayed for reasons other than pregnancy--specifically, delayed ovulation. Your ovulation can be delayed for many reasons: stress, endocrine problems (thyroid), other medications, weight gain, etc.

Mary: There is only one known case of pregnancy without sexual contact, without In-vitro fertilization...and that is well described in the Bible. Otherwise, no chance of pregnancy. Missing a period however isn't always a pregnancy and may be related from hormonal abnormalities to stress etc. see a provider and have some basic testing done to start off. Good luck.
