Brief Answer:

Detailed Answer:

Thanks for writing to us.

1) If you got period on 10th XXXXXXX following unprotected sex on 31st May, then your chance of pregnancy is EXTREMELY RARE in that cycle.

2) Hormonal imbalance, mental stress, over weight, emotional upset, irregular diet habit, pelvic infection can lead to late period and period date may vary up to 7 days normally.

3) If you DON'T involve in sex after your last period, then you have NO chance of pregnancy. Otherwise, you must undergo one home pregnancy test to clear doubt about pregnancy.

4) On negative test, you can wait few more days to get period naturally. You may require progesterone pill to induce period. Kindly, consult with your doctor.

Hope, it helps for your information. Kindly, close the discussion if you don't have any other query.

Wish your good health and take care yourself. Practice safe sex always.
