Okay, so my period was about 8 days late. So I took a pregnancy test and it turned out to be negative. Well I'm still not having my period and it is now 10 days late. Is there still a possiblity that I could be pregnant or could this be the cause of something else?

thanks!

When you took the test, how long had it been since you had a pregnancy risk?

And how great was that risk?

I took it 15 days after having protected (using male condom)intercourse with my boyfrined. Isn't the time limit normally 10 to 14 days. I was pretty sure that I waited long enough.

That is generally long enough, yes.

And if your condom was worn for ALL genital contact, from start to finish, and did not rip, tear or slip off, you didn't have a pregnancy risk at all.

If your periods are not normally irregular, I'd visit your GYN if in the next month, it doesn't right itself, because yes, late or absent periods can be caused by many things, not just pregnancy.
