May not help to test: If you had a normal period after protected intercourse, you are very unlikely to be pregnant. There are many other reasons why your period can be late such as stress, dieting, thyroid difficulties, PCOS etc. If it is a persistent problem, see your Ob/Gyn for an evaluation. Best wishes!
