So I am on 28 day pill pack and have taken it for over 4 years. Last week, my boyfriend and I were messing around and he came and then we cuddled. I know there isn't a risk but since my period usually visits on Thursday or Friday and since it's not here, I'm freaking out a bit. Maybe some semen got near my vagina (long shot but hey better safe than sorry). Is there a risk of pregnancy?

I'm not sure what "messing around" involves for you.

When you looked at the threads and links we ask users to before asking about a pregnancy risk, did they mention any activities that pose actual risks which you did here?

He just fingered me and I gave him a hand job. I looked them up and still was uncertain. I wouldn't know what else would cause my period to be this late.

So, as you know, manual sex (both of those are kinds of manual sex) doesn't pose pregnancy risks. What does are either a) direct genital-to-genital contact and/or b) direct contact of his ejaculate with your genitals.

Periods or withdrawal bleeds can be late for a whole host of reasons, and one day? Not "so" late. Really, not even what would be considered late at all. It's pretty typical, even while on the pill, to have deviations in when a bleed comes by a day or two. If you never have before, that's actually been unusual.

I'd try and chill out (unless you may have had a risk, in which case you can certainly test for pregnancy), and give things at least another few days.
