Hello Anon,

Thank you for being a part of the EmpowHER community and sharing your question.

Having unprotected sex and now having a late menstrual cycle, are major factors that could cause and indicate pregnancy.   You could wait a couple of days to see if your menstrual cycle comes, or you can take a home pregnancy test to find out for sure now.  

I hope this helps.

Be well,

Yes there's a possibility. Inter course could easily result in pregnancy if it's unprotected and you seem to have missed your period.
Your period could also have been missed due to stress or anxiety.
Take a pregnancy test
