Hi, I am new to the states,and recently starting having sex. I had protected sex with my boyfriend (used condoms) and he usally tries not to cum inside me (despite wearing a condom). So far from what I remember we have been pretty responsible. I had sex on the 14 of this month last. Supposed to have my period on the 24th. i have a pretty regular cycle and i am a bit paranoid and too ashamed to tell anybody i am scared. I know 2 days is nothing to feel worried about, but do you think I should take a home pregnancy test or just wait for a few more days?

If you have used condoms properly, from start to finish, every time you have engaged in sex, pregnancy isn't at all likely.

However, if you're not certain about that OR if your period does wind up being late (usually a "late" period is figured to be not getting one about five days after it's expected), then it would be wise to test soon. But waiting a few more days is a good idea, since it doesn't sound like your period is late just yet.

thank you for your response. I took a clear blue first thing in the morning. The result was negative. But I am feeling very bloated and have terrible heartburn, and still no period even after 3 days. I am very confused what I should do in this situation.

Symptoms like bloating, etc can indicate PMS just as easily as pregnancy, so they're not very good indicators (it can also mean you just have indigestion, heh.) Give it a few more days and test again if it doesn't show up :-)
