Though you had intercourse during cycle time , when chances of pregnancy are less, delayed period surely arise suspicion of pregnancy.Get a urine pregnancy test done, if its negative wait for week to see if she gets period and if she doesn't then repeat test.

Protected sex prior to period is very much safe and literally there is no chance of pregnancy. Though, she needs to confirm it with one home pregnancy test with urine.

Other reasons for delayed period are hormonal imbalance, stress/ anxiety, thyroid problem, ovarian cyst, wt gain/extreme loss, irregular eating habits, psychological factor etc.

Here, she may require some investigations to rule out underlying pathology through USG pelvis scan, thyroid profile & other hormone assay etc. Consult with your gynecologist and take suggestive measures.

Avoid stress / anxiety, take healthy diet with vitamin & iron supplements, eat more fruits & vegetables , drink plenty water or juice and maintain genital hygiene properly.
