Last Month I had sex using a condom. My second time having intercourse EVER! 2 days later I started my period. It was lighter than normal but still lasted 5 days. I thought I may be pregnant. I took the test 2 times and both said negative. I have no signs. nausea, breast tenderness, craving or weird stomach feelings. None at all. But now it's time for my period and it hasn't come yet. So far i'm 3 days late. Should I buy another Test ?

If you used the condom correctly for all genital contact, and it didn't break, slip or tear, then your risk is very very low anyway.

Given that you had your period since then, plus two negative pregnancy tests, it's pretty safe to say you're not pregnant.

But if another negative test will help make you feel less anxious, go for it.

Assuming you're not pregnant, we have a handy article on other reasons why your period might be AWOL:

With another negative test, and based on your previous information, it's quite safe to assume you're simply NOT pregnant.

And weight gain this early in a pregnancy would not be likely, not to mention weight gain can be caused by a number of other things, even as simply as bloating/water-retention or a change/shift in metabolism, diet or activity.

That's not the only thing it could be, stress can have a factor, but women are subject to irregularity every now and again for no apparant reason. There can also be medical reasons for missing or having a late period, but that's not something you should worry about unless your cycles begin to become very irregular or you miss two periods in a row entirely.

In any event, I wouldn't worry too much at this point. If next month you're still having irregularity or miss your period again, then it would be a good idea to check with your gynecologist.
