Can you have sex 2 days before your period, get your period two days late, and still be pregnant?

Yes, yes, and yes: A healthy woman in her reproductive years can become pregnant any time during her cycle, with chance being highest during/around time of ovulation and lower during active menstrual flow. It is hard to tell exactly when ovulation occurs and so timing is a very poor method of contraception. Best is to use protection (condoms and/or pills) at all time if u don't want pregnancy. Consult doc. Good luck. Read more

Early pregnancy: Some people will have bleeding at the time of the missed period, though it is usually lighter than usual. This is implantation bleeding which can occur when the embryo is growing into the lining of the uterus. However it can also be a sign of a miscarriage. Getting a blood pregnancy test and repeating it in 3 days to make sure it is still rising will let you know if everything is ok. Read more
