Can I ask how you count days to know when to expect your period? In other words, you do know your average number of days in your cycle and count that way, right?

You posted you were going to get that pap on the 5th of this month. So, given it's the 31st, your period would only be late, today, if your normal cycle is 26 days or fewer, and only four days late if your normal cycles are just 22 days each. Is that so?

It's normal to sometimes experience a late or even a missed period. This can be due to a lot of things such as a change in your diet, an increase in the amount of exercice you do, stress among other things.

If you have only been engaging in dry sex fully clothed and not other sexual activity, then you haven't had any pregnancy risk and therefore just can't be pregnant.

Here, I suggest checking this out:

Okie dokie.

If you're sure you had no pregnancy risks, and since you so recently had a GYN exam so we can be pretty darn sure you're in good order, I don't see any reason to sweat over this.

Well, as i said, I've been having dry sex lately but both of us wearing jeans and underwear all the time.
I guess there's no risk from that, am i right?
