I am 20 and still virgin. Me and my boyfriend didnt actually have sex but we had sexual encounters. My boyfriend tried to put his penis in me three or four times.I am having final exams this week and I am kinda stressed.My period hasnt arrived for two or three days. I read online that Precm can get you pregnant and I was very worried. I felt cramps and tendering breasts two days ago. So I took a pregnancy test and it was negative.But my period hasnt arrived yet. I know this sounds silly but I am really scared.

Hello Anonymous,

Welcome to EmpowHER and thank you for reaching out to us with your concern about a late period.

I really think stress is the cause. During periods of high stress, the body increases the production and secretion of cortisol. In response, certain functions considered "non-nonessential" are given low priority. The menstrual cycle is one of these functions.

Pre ejaculate is thought to contain sperm only if the male has had a recent ejaculation. Sperm can remain in his urethra. But, once he voids, that stow away sperm is eliminated.

I hope this information is helpful to you.
