I have regular sex & have been missing my period for 13 days now. I use condoms and none of them have ever split. I have quite heavy discharge and am generally quite irritable. My periods can be irregular but I don't think I've ever been this late before. Could I be pregnant? I used to have a lot of unprotected sex about a year ago using the withdrawel method and never got pregnant. I've heard that you have to have a certain percentage of body fat also to get pregnant and I am very skinny. Help?

If youv'e been using condoms properly and haven't had any split, your chances of pregnancy are pretty slim.

That said, the only way you're going to know for sure is if you take a pregnancy test.

Your weight (and/or percentage of body fat) would only be an issue if you'd stopped menstruating altogether. Since you have been normally menstruating in the past, we have to assume that you are able to become pregnant.

But is it possible that any semen could have leaked out?
Two weeks is very late..isn't it?

Leaked out of where? If there was a hole in the condom, you'd probably have noticed it.

How long are your cycles normally?

Two weeks does seem quite a bit late ... Certainly late enough for me to want to take a pregnancy test to know for sure.

Yes I may take one soon.

Sometimes my boyfriend and I find it hard to find condoms that fit tightly around his penis, and they slip off slightly, but only slightly.

My cycles usually last around 5-7 days.

He should look for condoms which state they have a "snugger fit." Most asian brands do, and both Kimono and Beyond Seven are cut a bit more snugly than average.
