hello my last period was on June 8 and i skipped July. the skipping of my period happened before around 3 times already when i was stressed and i have irregular periods but the catch this time is i had sex twice at June and July. We used condoms on both occasions and he withdrew with the condom just before ejaculation on both occasions. No condom breakage or slippage. The past missed periods, i was a virgin. Another thing is i have been stressed out this past few this the reason of my missed period because i dont feel any signs of pregnancy but some people say some girls don't feel these symptoms at all. what are the risks of being pregnant? pls help because i dont know much about these things..thanks!

Hey there: when condoms are used correctly and consistently, they're 98% effective. Going by your past history of irregular cycles and several weeks of stress, it's very likely that that's what's behind your delayed period.

However, if it would help ease your mind, you can always take a home pregnancy test. Also, judging by your post history, you seem to be very concerned about condom use and its effectiveness: you may want to consider using another form of birth control in addition to condoms so that you're more protected (and less worried) about pregnancy, or not engaging in intercourse at all at the moment until you feel more prepared and less nervous about it.

If you don't menstruate for three months or so, it's a good idea to see a gynecologist to make sure everything's alright.

Condoms, The Buddy System: Effectiveness Rates for Backing Up Your Birth Control With a Second Method
, and M.I.A or, Dude, Where's My Period? are all articles that you might want to take a look at.

I hope this has helped!
