Since your period is late, you can take a pregnancy test now. If you used a condom correctly and it didn't break, your risk of pregnancy is low, so hopefully a test will put your mind at rest. There's no point in worrying when you can go and get a definite answer.

Yes, if you don't have regular periods in the first place, it makes being "a day late" not a great indicator of pregnancy! And this is okay, because you're cycle may not settle into a pattern for a while.

It could be delayed because it IS irregular, or, yes, you're worried, or a host of other things. Or, as logic said, the low chance you have of being pregnant. So just do what she said, hey, and go take a test and put your mind at ease

It could be the worrying that's causing you to urinate more often, or you could just be getting more fluids right now. Or maybe you aren't necessarily really urinating more, maybe you just think you are because you're maying attention now. At any rate, it's not a symptom that'll tell you whether or not you're pregnant.

If you've had a pregnancy risk this month, then probably the fastest way to relax and calm your fears is to take a pregnancy test. Taking a test (actually you should take two, one now, one in a week to double check) won't make you pregnant, but it'll certainly give you some peace of mind. Then you'll know whether you're pregnant, or whether it's the stress of worrying about it (or something else) that's making your period late.

about urinating more and pregnancy. that's because when you're pregnant, your expanded uterus starts to smoosh down on your bladder. The decrese in volume and added pressure make your fill up quickly and thus you feel like you need ot pee more. But this only happen when the woman is relatively far along in her pregnancy (unless you started showing *really* soon).

so please camz, just get the test, and decide whether all this stress and worry is indeed worth the trouble. If it isn't (and that's perfectly okay), sit down with your boyfriend and discuss the possibility of holding off on sex till you're more willing to accept the risks. He'll understand, because if he doesn't, he's being really selfish.
