My boyfriend and I had sex at least 10 time's last month and we used condoms with the extra spermicidal lube each and every time. He also pulled out every time and always checked the condom afterwards for any ripping. My period is now 13 days late. I never really had a regular period for more then a few months but it has never been over a week late like it is now. I have not felt any different other then a few major stomach cramps now and then which i've never experienced before and my face is at least 3 times more oily as it always was. I only began being stressed about this yesterday so stress is not what is causing it to be late. Please tell me what are the chances that I am pregnant? Does it sound like I am or could be? Please help

If you used both condoms and withdrawal perfectly, becoming pregnant would be extremely unlikely.

However, having the kinds of sex which present a risk of pregnancy always carries some risk of pregnancy. So, if your period is much later than it ever has been, you may want to just take a pregnancy test so that you can know for sure and also stop stressing about this if it's negative.
