Hey whoever wants to answer...

I have a slight issue going on right now. My period was supposed to come on July 21st. I waited a couple of weeks and it still didn't come (at that point I had not had sex in quite a few months so I was not worried about pregnancy). After those initial couple weeks of being late, my boyfriend and I had intercourse. We did have it unprotected during one instance, however he is quite controlled when it comes to his body and there was no ejaculation until 15mins after he'd already pulled out. We've done it a few other times since then, but have used a condom.
I guess my question is, I still have not gotten my period, and it's almost been 3 weeks now. Is it possible that my original reason for being late (stress, etc.) could still be the reason I'm late? Or could I now be pregnant?

Since you have been sexually active recently, including that one bout with the withdrawal method, at this point I would suggest taking a pregnancy test.

In terms of the late period that happened before all of that, if you're so stressed you're missing periods for weeks, and this isn't something that has only happened the once, I would have a chat with your healthcare provider to be sure that a) nothing else is going on and b) if it is stress, that you get some extra information or help in managing your stress.
