so i have been extremely stressed the past few months with college, and this month my period is a week late so far. I have never had sex, however I do mess around with my boyfriend (hand jobs/ blow jobs). I also have a sinus infection. I was wondering if the sinus infection/ stress were what is making my period late?

Hi Anon

A sinus infection should not interfere with the menstrual cycle but stress certainly will. If you haven't had intercourse and are a week late, then stress is probably a factor. Since many college students are undergoing finals right now, I'd say a combination of stress and fatigue are to blame.  It sound be on it's way.

Hi again Anon! 

If you have never had intercourse or had ejaculate at the opening of your vagina, then pregnancy is impossible.
