    My boyfriend and I had sex on January 17th, that was 9 days after my last period ended. We used a condom (of course) and he did not come while inside of me.
    Fast forward to today, I'm now 6 days late. I have an abnormal period and being late by a few days is normal, but this is a little long. I had the symptoms I normally get before I get my period.
    I am under some stress right now, I'm in college, just started a new job and I tend to get really nervous about things. I know stress can mess up when your period comes.

    Am I over reacting? I'm really freaking out about this.

    (my boyfriend is on OT as well and will also read the responses when he can)

    Yes, you are over-reacting.

    No, we can't tell you if you are pregnant or not.

    Yes, you should go buy a pregnancy test to confirm for yourself.

    No will probably be the answer it gives.

    Yes, stress is probably the reason.

    No, I see no reason why your period shouldn't come soon, perhaps before you even finish reading this reply.

    I just need reassurance I think.
    I do plan on getting a pregnancy test if I don't get my period by Sunday.

    It seems like you take very good safety precautions, so I think you're overreacting, but definitely get a pregnancy test just to be sure. I wouldn't sweat it. It's VERY unlikely that you'd get pregnant from that encounter.

    Sounds to me like you are overreacting, periods can be late weeks even a month sometimes, they are ALWAYS irregular, regular periods are an illusion, your body is not a machine.

    Yes. I know my parents would freak out if I asked. And yes I've heard the whole your health is more important... You are an adult take control of you sex life.... Go by yourself...... At the moment it is not an option. That is why I use condoms every time. I know about planned parenthood, the problem is my parents control my bank account (I'm working on getting my own checking account) and would notice if I was paying for the pill.

    This same situation has happened to me twice before. The girl ended up being over a week late but everything was fine. Get a pregnancy test sooner rather than later, preferably from a doctor. She took two home pregnancy tests that both gave false positives. Talk about scary...

    No cum = no pregnancy.

    Don't worry about it.

    If it was only that easy.
    But he never gets in with out a condom. I guess I'm just flipping out because this has never happened before. We've been having sex for over half a year and my period hasn't ever been this late. :hsd:

    It kind of is that easy. "accidental" pregnancies rarely happen when you've taken proper precautions. I'm guessing your mom or aunt scared you into thinking otherwise when they had "the talk" with you though :dunno:

    OK I'm trying to calm down. I know staying all worked up over this is not going to help.

    A second question (I hope that this is not covered in the stickied thread, I only did a quick check) If you get bc from planned parenthood do you have to get the refills from them as well? Or can you get them at a pharmacy?

    from what I went though before with my gf (now wife)... she went back to school after a while and we went though the same scare. in fact before that she used to be able to track her period to within a couple of days and once she went back to school the stress changed it. but for your comfort don't even wait till sunday because it will stay on your mind till then. get a test at the drugstore now and know for sure.

    if it's on the outside of the condom, maybe, but highly unlikely.

    Stressing over a late or missed period is just adding to the stress that may have caused it to begin with! Just get a test if your that freaked out.
