Okay, so I realize I might have a pregnancy risk, my boyfriend's genitals did come in contact with my genitals without protection. We eventually had sex with a condom and separate spermicide, but for a little while, maybe 5 minutes, we didn't use protection.

HOWEVER, I just want to ask this, because my boyfriend has a tendency to overreact and is deathly afraid of me becoming pregnant.

Last week, I got all my PMS symptoms, acne and cramps. During PMS, I developed a yeast infection. I got treatment. My period still hasn't arrived.

Could the yeast infection have possibly delayed something? Or should I just suck it up and go get a pregnancy test? I really want to find out the answer before I tell my boyfriend I'm late.


My hopes are so high, that your kiss might kill me.
So won't you kill me?
So I'd die happy.
My heart is yours to fill or burst.
To break or bury, or wear as jewelry.
Whichever you prefer.

He's not overeacting, but he sure is worrying a bit late in the game: he'd (and you as well) be wiser to be concerned BEFORE taking risks (of pregnancy AND STIs), and prevent them by having sex responsibly. It's pretty odd for someone "deathly afraid" of pregnancy to not do something so easy to prevent it.

You have had a pregnancy risk, and no, yeast infections don't tend to usually delay menstruation, as they aren't uterine. If your period is late and it's been at least ten days since your risk, taking that test would be wise.
