I know you get many posts with this exact same title, and I feel kind of foolish posting because I don't think I've had a pregnancy risk. However, I figured that having someone else confirm this would alleviate my unfounded fears .
My last period started on Nov. 25, making me only a few days late. I want to contribute it to just stress from my semester finals a couple of weeks ago and a wacky sleeping/eating schedule. However, it's difficult to just have faith in that and keep waiting...and waiting for Aunt Flo to show up. The only encounter I've had that I can think of with my boyfriend was three weeks ago when we performed mutual masterbation. We had no direct genital-to-genital contact and as far as we can remember neither one of us touched the other person. My boyfriend also "held it in" when he orgasmed. However we were sitting in close proximity of each other...typing this out makes me feel like I have no pregnancy risk,but I just wanted to make sure. My breasts have been sore and tender for the past two weeks, which seems really strange to me - I know they get sore right before my period but for me it usually only happens two or three days before. Also the fact that my period is late worries me...obviously. I've also felt slightly nauseated but that very well may be because I'm worried about my period and am giving myself symptoms. Now, with finals and Christmas break I did stop my regular exercise routine, which could have thrown my body out of wack. Plus I did have weird sleeping/eating habits, but can that really still affect me three weeks after the fact?
I hope that I am not rambling too much, I just wish I had no need to worry! Thanks for taking the time to read this, I really appreciate having this site as a resource!

You haven't had any pregnancy risk here, so therefore you can't be pregnant.
It's normal to sometimes have to deal with a late period or even a missed period and this can be caused by a lot of things : a change in your eating habits, stress are two possible culprits. Here, take a look at our article here: MIA or DUDE :Where's my period ?
So, I wouldn't worry too much over it, even if you totally miss your period this month. If you don't get your period next month either, then it might be worth talking this over with your GYN but other than that, you're likely doing just fine. :)
