I am 18 years old and my periods have always been sort of irregular ranging from 24-36 days between. This time it has been 40 days and I am getting worried. My boyfriend and I fooled around on April on the 15 an 20th and I WAS pretty confident we didn't have a pregnancy risk but now that I missed my period I feel worried.

We have never had intercourse but we do things with our hands and mouths. There was one moment where his penis was on me was on the mound part of my vulva I believe it's called. And he did not ejaculate. Could that have been a risk for pregnancy?

The only other thing I can think of is I stopped a cholesterol lowering medication May 2nd. I was on that since 11 and now I stopped. I did this with my drs approval. Could this make my period late? I have PMS symptoms but they have me worried its pregnancy. Please help thank you.

Since your period is late, there is no need to play guessing games. You can just take a pregnancy test to find out what's up.
