My boyfriend and I put the condom on wrong in the dark on August 2, and we quickly fixed it after a second. Precum may have touched the tip, but as far as my understanding, there is no sperm in precum after urination as the acidity kills any sperm left over from a previous ejaculation and flushes it out. I was not ovulating at the time, and although you may get pregnant at any time, i've been told chances slightly lower when not ovulating. My period was due the following week. I still haven't gotten my period, and everyone is telling me it is most likely because i stressed myself over what has happened. I am showing no pregnancy symptoms at all, and i understand it is way too early to even experience, but even symptoms most women receive before the missed period, i'm not showing. Is the delay of my period due to the fact I can't take my mind off of it and keep "tricking" myself to worry?

hello Zmdrng,

There are a lot of reasons why a person's period might not come when they expect it.

Here's some information on that:

M.I.A or, Dude, Where's My Period?

I'm not sure what you mean by symptoms that most women get before their missed period. For the majority of people, unless they're looking out for pregnancy and are testing for it, the first indication they have that tells them they might be pregnant *is* a missed period.

What you describe with the condom mishap does not significantly increase the chances of pregnancy. For future reference, if that happens, you will want to use a new condom rather than reversing the one you're using.

Are you and your boyfriend up-to-date on your STI testing?

If you are concerned about pregnancy, you can take a pregnancy test. here is information on pregnancy testing, including when to take a test to ensure that the result will be accurate.
