I understand, Pittman. It's very very stressful to have to worry about whether you're pregnant, and keep track of when you had your period, and worry about whether something went wrong. If you decide to wait a while until having sex again, it will ease those worries and let you just enjoy your relationship.

But if you feel that you need more birth control, that's OK too. How old are you? In many areas you can get birth control without having to tell your parents. You can find out if there is a Planned Parenthood office somewhere close to where you live and make an appointment with them.

But I'm very glad that you are using condoms, and as long as you use them every time and use them correctly (with an empty space at the top for the ejaculate to go into), you will get good protection from an unwanted pregnancy. Do you feel like you know how to use them properly? Here's something that will help if you're not sure:


Take care, Pittman, and if there's anything else we can help you with, please don't hesitate to ask.

No, you can't be pregnant if you have had a period since the last time you've had sex. I think this is just another irregular period. I had irregular periods in my teens and 20s, and it was always annoying. I could go 29 days, 30, then it would be 35, then 28, then 29, 30. Just always something different. So I know how you feel. But since you've had a period since the last time you had sex, you're not pregnant. Just late.

Should you be on birth control, however? If you are regularly intimate with your boyfriend it might be time to think about some sort of consistent birth control (not just the condom). Have you considered whether you need to do more?
