Thank God for your website.
To get this straight: I have been through tons if posts and found that the encounter with boyfriend poses no pregnancy risk because his one layer of boxer briefs and lack of ejaculate (only pre ejaculate wet spots) cannot cause pregnancy. 1 because His underwear is more substantial than lace and 2 pre ejaculate would have to be in direct contact with my bare vulva to pose its small unlikely risk

That being said my period is still late and I don't have the usual breast tenderness that I get before my period.. So is it the stress/conviction that I had from my activities that has been bothering me for a few days or could the fact that my mom is due to bleed next week and my body is syncing with hers. She says that hers has been late or early in relation to mine before.
And sorry one more thing. Is my lack of usual pre period symptoms a sign that I won't get my period this month?

I have had late periods and skipped period and periods that stop for two days in the middle because of stress in the past but my past three cycles have been 28 days. And I've been getting my period for 7 years

Hi worrytoomuch,

If you look at this article you'll see that there can be a lot of reasons why a period could be late; stress is certainly one of them: M.I.A or, Dude, Where's My Period?
We can't know exactly why your period is late, or if you'll skip it entirely this month, but if you haven't done anything that's a pregnancy risk, then clearly something other than pregnancy is the reason.

My understanding is that there is little to no evidence to back up the idea that women's menstrual cycles will synchronize with the cycles of people in close proximity.

Even if your last few periods have been pretty regular, it sounds like your overall tendency is to have fairly irregular periods, so being a little late doesn't seem like cause for concern here.

Yes the only sexual stuff I did is what I mentioned in the first part of my post.

Part of my brain is still playing "what if" and is fearful of pregnancy by what I described.


Is it "normal" to have no pre period symptoms or at least not the sore breasts that I usually have.
.Should I be concerned or tested for a highly unlikely pregnancy by a wet precum spot on boxers that poked around and was rubbed on my bare wet vulva.
