Hi, so my period is about a week late, and this has never happened before. I read through all the pregnancy articles, and have learned that because i have not had direct genital contact, and fingering with precum on fingers is not an issue (i'm pretty sure there wasn't anyway) i know that it is irrational to think that i am pregnant. however, today i experienced really dry, old blood discharge instead of what was supposed to be my period. and i read that this is a sign of pregnancy. is this normal? does this mean my period should be coming soon? Also, i am not on birth control pills, i was pretty stressed this month, and i do not exercise too vigorously.

Hi pickleberry,

It is not unusual for periods to change from time to time in terms of what colour/texture it is etc. I am pleased to hear you have read through the articles and have managed to determine that you had no risk there. If you have been quite stressed that can cause your period to be a bit delayed too. I can't tell you if you will be getting your period soon as I can't know that but for now I would say try not to stress about it and it will probably turn up!
