Alright, so a week ago Sunday was the last day I spent with my boyfriend before he left to boot camp and well we obviously had sex. We had unprotected sex for maybe 3 minutes but before he put his penis inside i could feel that the very tip of it (like the opening) was moist but i didn't think anything of it. After the 3 or 4 minutes we put on a condom and continued but he didn't come inside me (he never does). I'm kind of worried that maybe precum got inside me but i'm not sure because he said he wasn't even close to climaxing. For the past maybe 4 or 5 months my periods have been consistent to arrive at around the 11th of each month except in july when is came either the 15th or the 16th. i keep getting some random cramps that come and go and have broken out a little but i still haven't gotten my period. i haven't quite freaked out yet but i'm still worried considering my boyfriend is now away with the military. my boobs are a tad bit sore but not really. just one even that got to me was that i woke up one night with extreme nausea (saturday actually) threw up a little but felt better after i went to the bathroom. i told a friend and figured maybe it was ingestion but i'm not sure.
so if anyone could pleaseeeee help i would appreciate it so much!

Not wearing the condom the whole time is improper condom usage. So essentially what was used here was withdrawal, which is around 73% effective with typical use. This also poses a high STI risk. Are you and your boyfriend up-to-date with STI screenings?

If you are late for your period, you should take a pregnancy test. However, I'm not sure if you are late for your period. If it was coming on the same date every month that would be very unusual, because the amount of days in each month is different. So if you test not and get negative, but still don't get a period in another week, you should retest.

Also, precum has nothing to do with whether someone is close to climaxing. It comes out when a person with a penis is aroused. It usually doesn't contain sperm, but if he didn't urinate since his last ejaculation, there can be sperm leftover.
