Welcome to ehealthforum,
If you have been sexually active after finishing with your periods and during your fertile days, chances of pregnancy cannot be ruled out completely (especially if you are not on any form of birth control measures). The delay in periods could be suggestive of possibility of early pregnancy. Wait and watch for your next periods (sometimes they can be delayed for upto 10 days). Look out for development of any new symptom suggestive of early pregnancy. If you do not start with periods within 10 days of expected period dates or if you develop any new symptoms suggestive of early pregnancy, or if you get abnormal periods, visit your doctor/gynecologist for further examination (to confirm pregnancy related changes/signs in body) and blood/serum HCG level test (to confirm/rule out pregnancy accurately). Drink plenty of water. Take adequate rest. Maintain healthy diet.
Take care.
