Me and my gf have had sex about 10 times in the last month. We have used a condom everytime which came with spermicidal lubricant. The pull- out method was also used with the condom. She isn't on birth control yet but is going to be soon. Her period should have came over the weekend and it hasn't. We are starting to worry that it won't. What do you think are the chances of her being pregnant are? Why would her period not come other than being pregnant? she says shes having discharge a watery discharge and she has been having cramps for the past couple of days. Does this sound like her period might come any time now?

Many people have menstrual cycles that are irregular; that is, the period doesn't come after the samenumber of days each month. What do you know about her menstrual cycle? If she keeps a list of dates on which her period came, she can look back at it and see the pattern of when they've come. Likewise with the premenstrual symptoms. What does she usually experience before her periods?
It's not unusual for a period to be a few days late, or even several, for all kinds of reasons, including stress, being sick, etc.
If it would be helpful to easing her mind, she can take a home pregnancy test. Know that pregnancy tests won't be accurate until at least 14 days after the last time sexual activity that could bring about pregnancy occurred. Also remember though that taking a home pregnancy test is up to her, since it's her body.
