I haven't had sex since March of this year,which was protected with no ejaculation. My period came 10 days late. It then continued to come as a regular cycle. In the month, July I spotted four days before my expected start date , however it's a week late.

Hello Gennz

Thank you for writing!

You would be into your second trimester now, if you were pregnant. Since you had protected sex with no ejaculation and periods after, you are not pregnant. A pregnancy test can confirm this for you - we advise any of our readers who are wondering if they may be pregnant to take a test.
If negative, your hormones may be off this month for many reasons including stress, lifestyle change or a simple change in body chemistry.
Best,
Susan

Thank you, but in regard to the spotting. Is that something to be worried about?

Spotting in general is nothing to be worried about - it's usually hormonally related. Some women do spot in pregnancy - again a test will let you know for sure.
Best,
Susan
