Ok, this is my b/f and I have been having sex for over a year and always with condoms and we have never (luckily) had one break, tear, bust, etc. and we have never had any problems. This is my concern...I am not very regular, I usually stay around the same few days, maybe a day or two off, but this month i'm not. Last month I started on the 12th, the month before that, the 13th, and the month before that, the 16th so you see i'm not too regular. But, this month, as of right now, today is the 16th and I have not gotten my period yet but today I felt like I had those "feelings" like I was going to start but thus far, nothing. I checked "in there" just to see what was goin on and there is a thick brownish gooey substance inside but no bleeding. Am I getting in a hurry? I think i'm worrying myself to death because i'm thinking something bad. I have been on antibiotics earlier this month for a bad cold, i'm stressed about all my Senior things going on, and now this i'm stressing over and I know these are all things that could make me jump around, but still, i'm usually pretty regular. I have no other symptoms, but i'm told they don't even show up the first few weeks of pregnancy so what is goin on? Please let me know what you think.

I think that you can answer this question very quickly by taking a pregnancy test!

That said, it doesn't sound particularly likely that you are pregnant. Many, many things can make your period late, as you know, and being pregnant is only one of them [ ]

If you're going to constantly worry, take the test; if you're not going to constantly worry and you'd rather wait a few days to see if your period comes, then wait.

But I myself would not call myself "late" until 5 days after the day I got my period the month before - since that was the 16th for you, then I wouldn't say you were late until the 21st.

Remember that the 16th was three days later than the month before - and you were not worried then!

Your menstrual cycle can change - maybe you were around the 12th or 13th for a long time, and now you'll be around the 16th. That's normal. My periods get a day or two farther apart with every period now that I'm a little older. Body's change

Hope this helps,

Take a pregnancy test. You're just going to worry about it and until you do, and at least then you'll know whether or not you should be worried.

Best wishes!
