Thanks for the query.
If your expected date is between 17th and 22nd and you have still not got your periods then you will need to do a urine pregnancy test.It is already 1 week since your expected date of periods too.Even though you had intercourse on your non fertile days there are chances of pregnancy if contraceptives were not used.Also delay in periods could happen due to stress, hormonal changes etc..
