Welcome to ehealthforum.
Having intercourse for the first time can cause changes in your hormones leading to delayed periods. Another possibility for delayed peiods could be pregnancy (since condoms are not 100% safe and are associated with failure rates).
If you do not get your periods within 10 days of your actual expected period date, then go ahead with examination and blood HCG level test done by your gynecologist. Urine pregnancy tests can keep showing false negative test results due to less concentration of pregnancy hormone (HCG) in urine, and hence cannot be relied upon.
