Brief Answer:
Hormonal imbalance and stress can cause late period.

Detailed Answer:
Hello Dear,

Thanks for writing to us. Followings are my comments:

1) According to your last period date, you did unprotected sex on safe period (first 5 days after period over is extremely SAFE) and you have NO chance of pregnancy in this case if previous cycle was quite regular.

2) Normally, period date can alter from 1-7 days due to hormonal imbalance and mental stress. Emotional upset, psychological factors, over weight, diet pattern change etc are some contributing factors.

3) If your recent pregnancy test is NEGATIVE, I can suggest you to take Norethisterone pill (5 mg) twice daily for 5 days. You will get withdrawal bleeding like period within 3-5 days after stopping medicine.

Hope, I have answered your query. Practice safe sex in future. Good luck.

For future query, you can directly approach me through
