Does having sex usually delay menstrual cycle?

I have always used Flo ovulation and period tracker which has always been 99% accurate. However, I married 3 months ago and after marriage, I noticed that my period is always a few days late. For the first two month, I thought maybe that's how it usually is when you have sex. This month, I was actually already thinking of taking a pregnancy test but then it came today and I was a bit disappointed to see it. I just want to know does having sex delays or disrupt your menstrual cycle? It has happened to me three month now ever since I had sex.
Thanks.

When you say that now your period is "always a few days late," does that mean your first month was 28 days long, then your next month was 32 days long, and then your next month was 36 days long? Or do you mean you used to have a regular length of menstrual month (such as, 28 days from period to period) and now you've shifted to a longer menstrual month (such as, 32 days from period to period)? If your cycle has shifted and is a little longer, but is regular at that new number of days, I wouldn't worry at all. If it's getting longer and longer every month, that is more unusual.
