Thanks for the query.
If you had unprotected intercourse during the period of ovulation, there is possibility of pregnancy.
Sometimes urine pregnancy test kits may not detect early pregnancy.
But delay in periods can also occur due to many causes like weight changes, stress and strain, poly cystic disease of ovary, thyroid abnormalities etc.
So you better go for blood test for pregnancy, which will give more accurate result.
If the test comes negative, you consult gynecologist and take tablets for withdrawal bleeding.
Usually home remedies will not work, and there is no scientific proof regarding their effect on menstruation.
Hope I have answered your query. I will be available to answer your follow up queries. If you are satisfied with all my answer, please rate the answer after closing the discussion.
Take care.
