Hello and thank you for sharing your question.

There is no chance of pregnancy because you used protection and you have had 4 full periods since you last had sex.

Periods can be late for others reasons besides pregnancy such as stress or hormonal imbalances.  It is no cause for alarm.  It is only necessary to have a regular period if you are trying to become pregnant or you have severe negative symptoms connected with your cycle such as debilitating pain.
