My girlfriend is 2 days late on her period. She got drunk one night and drank only slightly a couple of times throughout the month.(might I add she RARELY drinks)Could this possibly be causing a late or missed period. We had sex using both withdrawal and condom. Any insight?

Hi Guitar,

I would think the alcohol in the short term is unlikely to have an affect on your girlfriend's period. However 2 days isn't very late for most people's cycles and any number of things can cause changes to it - stress, diet etc

If you're using condoms consistently as well as withdrawal then your pregnancy risk is tiny, if not non-existent. I'm sure it'll be fine but as always she can do a pregnancy test to double check. I really don't think it's necessary though.
