I believe my period is a little late, should I be worried?

My last period's first day was June 27. My boyfriend and I had unprotected sex twice since then, but he never ejaculated either time. My average span between periods is about 30-31 days. I also received two immunizations, one for Tetanus and Meningitis, two days ago. Could they interfere with my period? Should I be worried? I'm only 18, and my parents would kill me if they knew.

Hi Eveln,
There is a slight chance that sperm can still enter the vagina without penetration. It is not a high risk for pregnancy although there is certainly the risk. You can always tell your partner to use a condom even if there is no penetration to reduce your chances. I hope this helps.

The penus has to go in the vagina in order to get pregnant ?

hi Missie cortes , I was wondering if the penus has to go in the vagina in order to get pregnant . Me and my boyfriend were measing around and he rubbed his.penus on my buttcheeks . He was dry as far as I know . But if he had prejaculation on his penus and he rubbed it on me could I get pregnant ? And he was dry but wjat if I didnt feel it and prejaculation dripped by my vagina ? What are the chances then?

No worries, my period came. Safe to say safe sex is the only sex I will be having from now on. Thank you for the answers!

Hi artist_11,
You are at risk for pregnancy anytime you have sex...thats the chance you take by having sex. I am not sure we can accurately give you a highly likely or unlikely answer to your question. The best thing you can do is wait, as Rosa mentioned, to take the pregnancy test.

Good luck,

How likely is it that there was pre-ejaculation? And how likely is it to get you pregnant?

Thank you for your question! If your period is between 30-31 days then you're period was due on July 27-28, I would wait at least another 4-5 days prior to taking a home pregnancy test.
Many times periods can be late due to stress, illness, medications, etc. Your immunization shots, however, will not stop you from getting a period. Remember that any time you have sex, whether or not there's ejaculation, you could potentially get pregnant due to pre-ejaculation if not protected.

Good Luck and keep us posted,
