Hello- Unsafe sex and low HB levels, both can cause delayed menses, but a basic difference between them is that a low HB (anemic) patient will have a history of delayed menses in earlier cycles too. If this is the scenario with your partner thn her menses can delay due to low HB. However perform a urine pregnancy test after 40 days of missed period to rule the pregnancy.

Dear user. TO CAUSE PREGNANCY on a woman, sperm should be ejaculated inside the vagina or fresh sperm should be inseminated inside the vagina with some means during the fertility period of the woman. Pregnancy only happens when other aspects are too satisfied. In the given case, there are less chances of pregnancy. Take care.
