OK, so me and my gf had sex back in june. We used protection (trojan condom). Then in July, we both were paranoid because she was not getting her period. BUT she then got it a couple of days late. I still haven't felt complete relief about her not being pregnant at all. She has gotten her period for 4 months straight now. BUT this month, she was suppose to get is the 15-18 and it is now the 27 of nov. We are paranoid all over again. What is going on? Can a pregnant woman have her period and then miss periods? We used a really good condom. How effective are condoms nowadays? Aren't they like 98% effective.

Did your partner have any pregnancy risk ? If you used a condom for intercourse and it did not break or tear and if semen did not come into contact with her vagina or vulva during other sexual activities, then your partner didn't have any pregnancy risk and she can put her mind at ease, really. She's not pregnant. You're right, condoms, when used properly (which means with lube), are effective at around 98 %.
A girl cannot have a period and be pregnant at the same time, no.
If pregnancy is something that is bothering you both a lot, then it might be a good idea to think about coupling condom use with another birth control method such as the pill, the diaphragm, what have you.
