My boyfriend and I messed around a few weeks ago. Nothing too serious I just "went down" on him and I'm not sure if I touched his pre-cum or anything. I went home that night and I remember washing up before I masterbated. My period hasn't come and I took a pregnancy test and it came out negative. Will my stressing out about this now just make my period come even later?

It sounds as though you guys had little to no pregnancy risk in the first place, so I wouldn't worry about pregnancy, especially if you've had a negative result from a pregnancy test. (However, you have had STI risks- have you and your boyfriend both been tested?)

Stress certainly can make periods come late, so really, just try to keep in mind that you're in the clear. You could even take another test to reassure yourself if you like! [Smile]

I'm just concerned. I want my period to come already! My mom is constantly asking why it hasn't come yet and I don't want her to give me a test. What should I tell her?

You know, there's really no harm in her giving you a pregnancy test, is there?

After all, it's more than unlikely you're pregnant, so.

When were your last few periods in terms of dates?

My periods were usually in the middle of the month (like the 15th or so) and by now it would be over. I'm getting cramps, tender breasts, pimples (signs of my period) but it still hasn't come.

I have another pregnancy test, I'll do it tomorrow morning before I go to school. Is that a good time to take it?

It's so important to make a point of just making a note in a calendar each month of when you menstruate.

Some of why is because with a regular cycle periods aren't going to fall around one date each month, because unlike menstrual cycles, the number of days in each month vary. So, someone with a 28-day cycle may have a period around a certain date for a few months at a time, but not overall, over years.

(And in March, this is particularly important, since February has several days less than other months.)

The morning is the best time to take a test, but unless something happened you didn't post here, you're not pregnant, and those symptoms you're having are likely just because your period is en route.

I forgot that February has less days, thank you for reminding me. Other than that, I'm a natural "worrier". Nothing else has happened to me, I just worry to the point of no return.
