My boyfriend and I have only had sex twice since my last period. Both times we used a condom (however, I'm not on the pill) and were very careful, and both times were after my estimated ovulation date, May 29th. I felt there was no way I could be pregnant. However, my period is now four days late, and it has been regular for about a year now (I'm seventeen). Is there a chance that I am pregnant, or is it more likely that the late period is due to something else (ie stress, etc.). Any help would be greatly appreciated!

If the condoms did not break, and no semen has come into contact with your vagina or vulva, then you have no pregnancy risk. However, it might be a good idea for you to take a pregnancy test for the sake of your peace of mind, to allow you to relax a bit.

Thanks for the reassurance [Smile] and yeah, I definitely plan to take a pregnancy test. So you're pretty positive that I can't be? The late period seems pretty significant to me :/

Pretty positive, yes. Of course if some semen cam into contact with your vagina that I don't know about, you may have had a risk, but if everything you have said here is accurate, then that risk does not exist at all. [Smile]

Your period can be late for many reasons, pregnancy is not the only one.

Late periods don't always mean you're pregnant...right now, for example, I'm 4 days late myself, and I'll tell you, if I got pregnant now, it'd be all over the news; "child was inmaculately conceived".

I'd say that if you don't get your period in another week, then you should consult with your gynecologist. Are you eating, exercising or sleeping differently? Are you handling a lot of stress? Are you like me, and do your periods synchronize with someone who is getting menopause? [Razz] Any of this can lead to a change in when you get your period.
