Hi,
Thanks for the query.
Delay in periods can occur due to many causes.
If she had unprotected intercourse around the time of ovulation, then there is possibility of pregnancy.
But usually urine pregnancy test kit can detect the pregnancy after one week of missed period.
Sometimes due to low beta hcg levels that may not detect in early weeks.
So let her go for blood test for pregnancy once.
If the test comes negative, the possibility of pregnancy is less.
And she can take tablets to induce withdrawal bleeding with your doctor's advice.
If test comes positive, you consult gynecologist, get examined and go for ultrasound.
Then depending on the findings you can proceed further.
Take care.
