i've been with my boyfriend since october, and ever since then we've had sex, a total of about ten or fifteen times. ever single time we've used condoms, and to our knowledge, they haven't broken or been expired. my mom and my sister both have had problems with their periods, and so far i've been pretty irregular. just a month ago i got my period two weeks after i had gotten the previous one, so i don't really know what my normal schedule is. but, the last time i have my period was late december, like the twenty second, and i still haven't gotten it yet. i haven't had any other pregnancy symptoms, but i'm still scared something may be wrong. am i irregular, or should i buy a pregnancy test?

If you've been using condoms for all genital contact and you haven't had any condom failures (and you'd know if you did - it's pretty obvious when a condom breaks), then you don't need to worry about pregnancy.

But, if you're worried and don't want to wait for your period, you can always just take a pregnancy test for your peace of mind.
