What causes delayed periods?

Posted on Tue, 1 Apr 2014 in Women's Health
Question: Hi Doc. On the first day of her period date last month, I had fingured my GF. I had held my genital before I fingured her, and I remember neither did I ejaculate nor was there any fluid. This month her period is already late by 2 days. She usually has her period in 25-26 days. That day she was already infertile because her periods had started. Is there a chance of pregnancy? Should we wait for few more days before reaching a conclusion.
