Welcome to ehealthforum,
If you had been having regular menstrual cycles of 28-30 days, then your fertile days would lie between 8-18 days taking day 1 as first day of periods. If you had been sexually active around your ovulation time chances of pregnancy are possible. If fertile mucus had been present at time of intercourse, sperms can stay alive for 5-7 days and fertilize the egg upon ovulation. After ovulation egg is alive for fertilization only for next 24-48 hours. If you miss your periods, or if you suspect chances of pregnancy, you should consider visiting your doctor/gynecologist at the earliest for thorough examination (to confirm pregnancy related changes/signs in body) and blood/serum HCG level test (to confirm/rule out pregnancy accurately). Be in regular monitoring and follow-up with your treating doctor/gynecologist and report any new/abnormal symptoms immediately. Take adequate rest. Drink plenty of water. Maintain healthy diet and lifestyle.
Take care.
