About a month ago exactly, my boyfriend and I had sex. He didn't ejaculate, we used a condom, there were no issues with the condom, and I had my period the next day.

Saturday, we had sex, after I gave him a blow job. We were certain to completely wash our hands with soap and water, as well as the tiny places on his clothes, and his entire genital area beforehand, just to be safe. We again used a condom, and again, he did not ejaculate. There were no problems with the condom.

Today, my period is a day late. I don't really see any viable risk, and these are the most recent experiences with any type of risk factor. I'm fairly stressed out about it, and I feel almost crampy today, but still no bleeding. I'm wondering if there is a viable risk and reason to be concerned, and I value any possible input that may help put my mind at ease. Thank you!

So, you used condoms for all direct genital contact, and did not have a condom failure? If that's the case, it doesn't sound to me like you need to be concerned with a pregnancy risk.

A period can be a couple days late sometimes, that isn't necessarily a cause for concern. If your period doesn't show soon and you're still worried, though, you can take a pregnancy test to put your mind at ease.

My period has just been so regular for the past few months, that it has me worried.

The fact that I had my period after the first instance I mentioned, also means that there is no viable risk from that particular experience, yes? That's always confused me.

A period means that you are not pregnant. So yes, you can discount everything that happened before your last period.

Periods, even when you are usually regular, can be late for all sorts of reasons: M.I.A or, Dude, Where's My Period?

And also, one day really doesn't mean much. Give it another couple of days to see what happens, okay? And then, like I said, you can always take a pregnancy test to find out what's up.
