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.

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.
