This is weird but my girlfriend and I have sex. She is not on bc so I always use condoms start to finish. None have broke leaked or had any holes. I always pull out right after ejaculation. My girlfriend says she gets her period every 28 days. She is one day late right now. Is pregnancy something to worry about? Or do periods randomly change? Can u get a girl pregnant using a condom correctly if it doesn't break? I can't even imagine any precum was on my fingers when I put the condom on. Thank you in advance

Thanks

A period being one day off doesn't really count as late. However, it is totally normal for periods to vary in terms of when they arrive, and you can read more about that here:
M.I.A or, Dude, Where's My Period?

If you've been using the condom consistently and correctly, (which it sounds like you have) then the chances of pregnancy are extremely, extremely low

So I really have nothing to worry about even though she's one day late and says that never happens. Can u try reposting the article above. It isn't allowing me to load it to read it

Thanks

Since the condoms were used correctly and didn't break or come off, then you can assume the condom did its job. Again, it is totally normal for people's periods to vary (even if they have a fairly regular cycle).

Here, see if this works:
M.I.A or, Dude, Where's My Period?

If not, you can go to the main Scarleteen site and search the title, and read the article from there.

I would also look at this article for future reference, if using condoms isn't enough protection to make you feel comfortable:
