hi, me and my girlfriend had sex at the beginning of february using a condom which did not break plus i did not ejaculate. everything was fine and she was supposed to get her period roughly around the 24th but did not, she has not gotten it yet. she has been feeling signs of her period, cramps, breast tenderness, stomach achs, do you think that she could be pregnant?

It sounds like she's getting her period. However, if you'd like to reassure yourselves you can always take a pregnancy test.

The house smelled musty and damp, and a little sweet, as if it were haunted by the ghosts of long-dead cookies.

what reasons could there be that her period would come 7 or 8 days late?

That's answered in On the Rag

quote:
It is also possible, if you're missing periods, that it is due to diet or exercise. If you aren't eating enough, or are overexercising (more than four hours a day, or running over ten miles a day), it throws your system out of whack, and you may begin to miss periods. Take care of yourself. Be sure to eat enough calories for the calories you burn, get enough rest, and eat a well-balanced diet. Stress can also make you miss a period, and more times than not that stress is because women think they may be pregnant, which can actually fool your body into acting like it is, thus causing you to miss a period. If you're sexually active, get rid of that stress by using sound birth control and STD protection, and just don't have sex at all while you're ovulating.

Be sure to check out the rest of the site -- there's a ton of information there.
