Hello,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

Five days before expected periods is a safe time as this is not the time of ovulation, and pregnancy chances are very low during this time. Also, if there was no ejaculation, the chances of pregnancy reduces to almost zero. Yes, but to be sure, I suggest she undergo a pregnancy test as periods are delayed. There is no other method to know about pregnancy. So, take the pregnancy test if periods are delayed beyond a week.
