Another "Pregnant? or just Stress-induced missed period?"

Hello ladies,

Like many of you I am also stressing about a late period. I like to practice outercourse or "dry humping" because I am a virgin and do not want to risk becoming pregnant at my age. I just started tracking my period 6 months ago and it has come on the 29th the last 3 months. However last month I was with my boyfriend and although we did not engage in intercourse my fear is that maybe some pre-ejaculate may have slipped into me. My period is 4 days late now and I'm not sure if I should be worried. Well I already am worried, and I've been under a lot of stress this past month and my stress level is higher now that I'm late. I would appreciate some advice and help ladies. Thank you so much.

Hi I am in the same problem, I had been in a lot of stress and it was a lot worse when i started worrying i could be pregnant. I went and took a pregnancy test and it came out negative so although i still don't know why i am now, 2 weeks late, i feel much much better having taken a test just because i know. It is possible to get pregnant just from messing around so try to be more careful, I am sure everything is okay but i would recommend checking things out. I hope this helps and best of luck I'm sure it's all fine. You sound quite young so it is also a possibility to just miss ones period for no particular reason. Best of luck

Dear Anon,

I'm sorry you've been under so much stress lately but this could be the reason why your period is late. Stress is a very powerful thing that can and will alter your period. Since you are now 4 days late, try giving it another couple of days (just in case your dates are off by a bit) and consider a home pregnancy test. This will help ease your mind.

Still, keep in mind that if there was no actual intercourse, there isn't a possibility of pregnancy.

Good Luck!
