Yes and no. The expected pattern is that periods stop once you are pregnant, like a couple of weeks after the sex. In fact there are exceptions and bleeds at period time can continue for a while. If you had sex in the past month and feel pregnant but you are having a bleed anyway, it's still time to test.

Hello and welcome to EHF !

I went through your query and i understand your concern.It is normal to occasionally experience a period that is a few days late. However, a missed period is when the cycle completely changes. A missed period may be a sign of pregnancy or another underlying cause. Early signs of pregnancy can be easy to miss, especially if the person has not been pregnant before.

Take care
