Thanks for the query.

Your last menses were on 21st april and you had sexual intercourse on day 22-24 of your cycle. In normal menstrual cycle, the fertile period is usually between day 12-17. You were way past your fertile period when you have sexual intercourse.

There is very low probabilities of pregnancy and you still have time for your menses.
I suggest you to wait for at least another 7 days. If you do not get your menses, then it would be better to undergo a Urine pregnancy test or get examined by a Gynaecologist.

Hope this answers your query. In case of any doubts, I am available for the follow ups.
