Hi,
Welcome to ehealthforum,
Periods can get delayed at times due to stress, lifestyle changes, hormonal problems etc. You are close to your probable ovulation days (time for egg release from ovary) after you finish with your periods and hence chances of pregnancy cannot be ruled out. If your periods do not start within 10 days of expected period dates, you should consider going ahead with a check done with your gynecologist to confirm/rule out pregnancy. Look out for development of any new symptoms suggestive of early pregnancy.
Take care.
