like, does it count as a missed one, where you can take a test then, or do you wait another month for another period ?

A woman ovulates 12-14 days before her period, always. If you have sex two days before your period is due there is no chance you could have conceived since the egg was already released and gone 10-12 days ago.

If your period that is due in two days is a little late it means you ovulated later than normal (this can happen sometimes due to stress). Still, the only chance you could be pregnant in the scenario you described is if you ovulated 10-12 days late (i.e. 2 days before your period is due). So, if your period is more than 10-12 days late then you can test for pregnancy because there is a chance you had sex around ovulation time. However, if you have regular periods you aren't really likely to ovulate this late.

Defn of a missed period: you have missed your period the day after your period is due. Again, though, there is always the chance you haven't actually "missed" your period. Often, women think they're pregnant when, in fact, they just ovulated a little late, therefore causing their period to be late.
