Welcome to ehealthforum.
Stress can cause periods to get delayed. Wait and watch for your periods. If you do not get your periods within 10 days of your actual expected period dates, then consider getting evaluation done by your gynecologist. Pregnancy is possible with unprotected intercourse before your periods start if you had a very late ovulation in your cycle.
