hello,
Chance of pregnancy is high enough, if unprotected sexual intercourse is done with ejaculation around ovulation time in regular period. Ovulation occurs approx 14 days before due date.
In your case, period due date was 6th January. So ovulation occurred around 23rd December. You did unprotected sex on 17th Dec which was almost safe period or having low risk as compared to ovulation time.
As your period is more than 10 days late, it is better to a urine/ blood test for hcg to confirm/ exclude pregnancy. Check the result and consult with gynecologist.
Other reasons like hormonal imbalance,stress/anxiety,ovarian cyst, thyroid problem, wt gain/ extreme loss,irregular eating habits etc. are required to rule out if pregnancy test is negative.
Avoid stress,take healthy diets, control body wt and need proper sleep.

Hi,
Welcome to HCM,
If you have regular cycles and your expected date was 6th jan ovulation takes place 14 days before so most fertile period was 22 to 25 Dec,as you had unprotected sex on 17th so sperms can survive inside for 2-3 days.
Now you have missed your period so it is highly advisable to do a urine pregnancy test and if positive please visit your Gynecologist.If there is any doubt blood test Beta HCG and a Ultrasonography may confirm it.If pregnancy is ruled out then stress,hormone imbalances,Anemia are other possibilities for missed period.
Your symptoms may be due to pregnancy hence ruling out pregnancy is most important.
Please take care
Good Luck.
