Hi! I'm kind of freaking out right now. So I'll begin to tell you I have had a history of irregular periods. My last period was either on December 4th or 5th, I might have written it down wrong on my calendar. My boyfriend and I had sex with a condom on New Year's Eve but it had been in his wallet, so we pulled out as well as used the condom. We had sex again on Tuesday January 3rd and used a condom but he did not come that time. I still haven't had my period but I've been experiencing cramps and my skin has been breaking out. I'm really scared... please help!
So you had sex twice and both times you used a condom for all genital contact? Sounds like there's nothing to worry about. While it's not a good idea to store a condom in a wallet, it sounds like you got lucky this time and it didn't break, so it's fine.
That aside, cramps and breaking out are not symptoms of early pregnancy. And with your last risk on the 3rd, since it takes about a week for a pregnancy to complete, you would just barely be pregnant at this point - way too early for any symptoms. What you are describing sounds to me more like symptoms of PMS - do you ever get those?
The earliest you can take a pregnancy test is at 14 days after a risk or the first day of a missed period. Since you're not sure when you're due, you can just test when it's been 14 days if you haven't had a period by then.

okay thankyou! just another quick question about these cramps though, how long do pms cramps usually last until the period starts? mine have been going on since Sunday and usually I only cramp a little on the first and second days of the actual bleeding.
