Hello.
Welcome to healthcaremagic.com
I am Dr Adil.
After having unprotected sex between two adults, pregnancy may occur.
But remember, Every unprotected sex doesn't lead to pregnancy.
Pregnancy depends on various factors. For example;
1. Time of sex, for instance, sex during the start and end of menstrual cycle usually doesn't lead to pregnancy.
2. Did you ovulate or not?
3. Your general health
4. Quality of Semen and few more.
I want to tell you that, keep in mind that every unprotected sex doesn't lead to pregnancy, But after having unprotected sex pregnancy may occur.
The first sign of pregnancy a woman usually notices is a missed or late period. Missed period is a sign. But missed or late period may occur due to many other causes also. So the best method is to do urine pregnancy test in 2nd or 3rd week after the unprotected to confirm pregnancy. If pregnancy test comes positive, abortion can be induced with the help of one or two doses of medicines. You may discuss it with your doctor later.
If you have any other question in your mind, then feel free to ask.
Take care.

HI
Thanks for posting your query .

Yes delayed periods is a sign of pregnancy but it can happen due to other reasons also . If its been more than a week I advise you to get Urine Pregnancy test done and if it's negative you can repeat it after 1 week .

Also use Condoms while having sex , it will protect you from pregnancy and sexually transmitted disease also .
