Yes but only if . . : If you're 5 weeks past your last menstrual period and you engage in unprotected sex, then yes, there is a chance of getting pregnant. I can't vouch for india, but here in the states, anyone can go to grocery or drug store for home pregnancy test w/o prescription. Use as instructed. If it's positive, go see your doc. If it's negative, go see your doc for either birth control or prenatal vitamins.

Missed period: There's always a chance you may be pregnant given your scenario. Do a pregnancy test and that should tell. If negative, but no period yet, do it in 2 weeks.
