Hello and thank you for sharing your question.

I am having trouble understanding your situation.  Do you mean to say that you had your period or you missed your period this month?

If you had your period, you are not pregnant.  If you missed your period, you may be pregnant and you should take wait 1 or 2 weeks then take another pregnancy test.

Hi, I had my period in the month we had sex, but my periods are delayed the subsequent month.

Periods can be irregular for many reasons unrelated to pregnancy such hormonal imbalances, stress, medication etc.  It is no cause for alarm and very common.
