Hi XXXXXXX
Thank you for choosing XXXXXXX As your periods are delayed for 7 days, you could be pregnant. Kindly do a urine pregnancy test to confirm the pregnancy. Even stress can cause delay in periods. For getting pregnant following things should be normal:
1)Normal semen report of your husband.
2)Your fallopian tubes should be patent.and
3)Normal ovulation
In case the UPT is negative, I advise you to get evaluated.
I hope this information has been both informative and helpful for you. In case of any doubt, I will be available for follow-ups. If you like my answers kindly rate it, and write a review as well. Please do not forget to accept it.

Hi XXXXXXX
Thank you for asking follow-up question. Yes definitely you can do the test now. Hope your urine pregnancy test turns out to be positive.
Remember to have sexual intercourse during day12 to day 18, which is the fertile period, where the conception rate is very high. And don't forget to get evaluated as advised in the previous answer.
Hope I have cleared your doubt.
If you do not have any clarification you can close the discussion and rate the answer. Wish you good health.
