In brief: Periods can vary
If a woman of child-bearing age is having intercourse, there is a chance she could become pregnant even if using contraception.
Because of that, most obgyn doctors encourage a woman to have a pregnancy test or exam if she has an unusual or delayed period. Sometimes it is too early to tell, but the office nurse or doctor can advise patients what to do when.
