So, looking at how it has been answered the many times it has, what did you find?

That its unlikely but I still feel like I'm gaining a lot of weight in just a week but I'm still so worried and my period is a week late

If you look at the articles we provided in those answers you read, it says it is not possible (not just unlikely) to get pregnant from manual sex.

Just so you know, it's normal for periods to vary in when they arrive, and there are many reasons why a period may be late. You can read more about that here.

Then, maybe, it would be very useful to do some self-care to deal with that stress. What do you think about that?

If you stick with the facts that the articles, and Sam, already gave you, about how pregnancy is not an issue here, then maybe doing something nice for you can help you feel less stressed about all this.

This is a *great* article we have that includes some good pointers of self-care:

Periods are not always the same and they can -- and very often do, actually -- change. Our bodies are not machines so we can't expect them to do the same every cycle. Sometimes a period can be late, or even skipped and there are a lot of reasons why this can happen other than just pregnancy. Especially when pregnancy is not even an issue because there was no risk at all. [Smile]

Here is a very good article that talks about this:

The link in the comment above yours doesn't work, but the same article was linked earlier in this thread, and that link does indeed work.

To really understand why pregnancy isn't a risk from what you're describing, read through this article, which explains how pregnancy DOES happen and what's needed to make it occur: Human Reproduction: A Seafarer's Guide

The MIA or Dude Where's My Period link in both responses don't work for me but on the other hand I recently just had my period thank you. The Human Reproduction link helped me understand it more accurately, thank you
