Hi, i'm new but i joined this website, looking for answers, and i've recieved some answers to some of my own questions, which has been very helpful.
But i have a question of my own,
that i'm not sure really at all about.
about three weeks ago, for the first time, i had sex with my boyfriend, we were both virgins, and un experienced in pretty much everyway, but we made sure we had protection at least. my period was due four days ago, and i haven't recieved it yet, and i've had my period for 7 years now, and it's never been off or anything,
so im wondering if this could possibly be a pregnancy scare, or what it could be, i'm quite nervous, and i've talked to him about it and everything, but hes telling me its probably just nothing, but i'm not convinced. so if theres anything anyone can help me with, it would be greatly appreciated.

What type of protection did you use? If you used a condom, and you used it for all genital contact and it did not slip or tear, then you did not have a pregnancy risk.

If you think you may have had a risk, you can take a pregnancy test about 10-14 days after the risk.

But really, periods are sometimes late for no reason, especially when we're still in our teen, so more likely it's nothing to worry about.

We were using condoms,
but we did notice, when we were finished that the condom was looser then it was when we had started,
i'm not sure if that is normal or what, consirding this was my first time,
i'm just very paranoid and nervous.
i'm not really sure what to think at this point.

It's normal for the condom to be looser than when you started. When the penis is erect, the condom should be snug. This holds it in place. After ejaculation, the penis becomes flacid and the the condom looser.

Provided your partner withdraws right after ejaculation, has left a space at the tip of the condom (to hold the ejaculate) and holds the base of the condom while he withdraws, there is no reason to suspect condom failure/user error.
