I haven't had my period for months. This usually would not phase me, because my period has never really come at regular, consistent times. And I have been particularly stressed. However, I did have sex (the kind involving a penis and a vagina) for the first time around two months ago, and the fact that I have not had my period since is mildly freaking me out. We used condoms, though one of them broke, but he does not precum, and I took a pregnancy test two weeks after just to be sure which was negative and another one a week or so after that which was negative as well. So, basically, what the ****?

Have you taken a test since you've missed a period? Have you been to a doctor?

Because my periods don't come at regular, consistent times and I'm not sure when my last period was before I had sex, I don't know how to answer that question. But I took the pregnancy test two weeks after I had sex and then a week or two after that. I haven't been to a doctor for this, but while at the hospital for unrelated reasons a day or two after I had sex, I asked a nurse if the condom breaking when there was no precum was something I should be concerned about and they said I might want to get checked for STIs and that there was really little to no risk of pregnancy, but told me how to access Plan B if I became more nervous and that I should take an over-the-counter pregnancy test in two weeks. The box of tests came with three, I guess I can go do another one now, but the fact that I don't have the physical evidence of my period is still irritating.

Yes, the test still says not pregnant. So that's good.

Well if you havent had a period in months you should see a doctor just to make sure everything is ok.
