I'm really really scared right now. I'm 19 years old and I'm at home for the summer about to head into my Sophmore year at college. I had my first sexual encounter this summer with a boy on June 9-10. We didnt have intercourse but we were naked and our genitals touched, at some point his fingers also went inside me, however, there was no penatration and although he ejaculated later it was not inside me. The next morning I completely freaked out and the day after, on the 11th, (48 hours after) I took Next Choice just to be sure because I was a complete idiot and had no idea that there was such a thing as pre-ejaculatory cum etc. until I looked it up after our inciddent. My last period was on June 4th or 5th I believe. That makes me believe that my period should already have started by now, today is July the 4th. My periods arent usually super regular, as far as I know, because I've never been able to keep complete track. The past few days I've had all the irritability, stomach-aches, headaches, and lower back pain, but no period.
My problem now is that I'm so scared and stressed out about my period possibly being late that I cant stand it. Its completely in my mind all the time and the stress of that and the stress of knowing that I'm probably throwing off the period I"m waiting for is completely killing me. My parents cant know and if I'm pregnant I dont know what I would ever do. Everyone in my town, since I've been home, I have noticed is pregnant and they are all very young girls who are probably going to have very hard lives from here on out. If I was pregnant I dont think I could handle it. I'm really scared and I dont know how likely it is that I'm pregnant or how to relax and know that my period is going to eventually come.
Do you think I could be pregnant? What do I do? Do I take a test? When?...
