I should have had my period on or around the 5th November and have been waiting anxiously for them. As its 3 weeks
over that date, what are my chances of been pregnant?
Expert:  Dr. Norm S. replied 1 year ago.

Since you had a normal period after having sex, the chance of your being pregnant are almost zero.

It's not unusual for a woman age 50 to miss periods. If you haven't missed periods before this, you likely will be missing periods in the future.

Also, pregnancy is rare at age 50, although it's not impossible. We recommend using something for birth control until you go one year without a period. Best regards.
