Hello Anonymous,

Thank you for your question.

It is quite possible that you could be pregnant. Having unprotected sex, especially when you are ovulating, leads to pregnancy.

Since your period is now five days late, you can test for pregnancy by using a more sensitive test. The more sensitive tests may be able to detect low levels of hCG as early as four days before your period is due. hCG is a hormone that is produced only during pregnancy.

The sensitivity of a pregnancy test is described on the packaging as mIU/ml (milli-International Unit per millilitre). Pregnancy tests range in sensitivity from 10mIU/ml to 40 mlU/ml. The lower the number, the more sensitive the test, and the earlier it can detect pregnancy.

Having a test result can eliminate your worry.
