I've been kind of worried lately. I had sex with my boyfriend a little less than a month ago and again about two to three weeks ago.

At first I wasn't worried about being pregnant, since my boyfriend and I both knew that the condom didn't break (he always blows into the condom like a balloon after we've had sex just to make sure there aren't any holes or rips in it).

I was expecting my period to come on the 12th of September. It's now the 18th and I'm getting a bit worried since my period hasn't come yet. For the past months or so, though, I've noticed that my period has started to become a bit irregular - starting a week early or a few days late.

I'm not very sure if this is another case of irregular periods. It will be almost a week late.

Would you say I should be worried and get tested for pregnancy? After all, the condom never slipped off or broke at all. It's just the fact that my period hasn't come yet that's getting me worried.

And another thing - we used the Trojan Ecstasy condom. The thing about that condom is that it's designed to be more loose near the head of the penis for extra feel for the guy. The end of the condom always stayed near the base of his penis, though. It was snug and didn't seem like it would slip of easily if you were to pull at it with your hands. Was it still a bad idea that we used this type of condom? Should we have just went with a regular condom?

Can I first ask how you chart your periods? Do you expect it to come on or around the same date each month, or do you count the number of days in between cycles?

It doesn't sound like you had a condom failure, and the style of condoms with more headroom for the guys is no less safe than other styles.

I actually count the number of days in between the cycles. I expected it to come 24 days after my last cycle, and it's already been almost 31 days. That's like a full month of not having my period, which is unusual for me, but I guess it's a first.
