Late period, implantation bleeding? Doesn't seem so...please read

Hello, I had my last period starting on May 15th and I usually have slightly irregular cycles lasting anywhere between 28 and 32 days. I think the latest I have EVER been was around 34. However, starting on June 4th, I noticed some spotting which continued into June 5th, then suddenly stopped? If I go by what my regular schedule is, my period would have been due sometime this week. My boyfriend and I have had protected sex since my last period (with spermicidal lubed condoms, too)and he pulled out every time because I'm kind of paranoid about getting PG.

It's now June 20th and I still haven't gotten my period. I tested twice last weekend HPT and got negative results (this would be over a week after the spotting) both times. I have absolutely no side effects of PG, no nausea, no soreness, nothing that I have looked up.
I have also been under A WHOLE LOT of stress this past month! Some of the worst stress I have ever had!

Mainly, it doesn't sound like I'm PG because I know my b/f is careful and nothing went wrong with the condoms or anything. I assume this is some irregularity due to the amount of stress I have been going through, but I would like a second opinion. Thank you all so much!

I'm sorry you are worried, but you are doing a great job at having safer sex! Using a condom and the withdrawal method combined really lowers any chance of pregnancy...but nothing is 100%. That said, your period is most likely late (today is "day 37" of your cycle) due to stress, recent illness, new medication or other unknown factors. Many, many women have late, or even missed periods, with no underlying medical condition and without being pregnant.

If your period does not begin next week, you can always call your doctor to seek his/her medical advice. Please know that some women can miss a period for a cycle (or even two!) and it does not mean anything is medically wrong. However, if you are worried (and, we do not know anything about your medical/health history), it is a good idea to have a medical evaluation to rule out certain medical conditions.

I hope your period begins soon, as your chance of pregnancy is almost nonexistent with the use of condoms and withdrawal. Please let us know what you decide to do!

Also I wanted to note that I am NOT on BC, and that we had sex on what I believe was during peak ovulation, which is why I am still slightly worried. But again, he used spermicidal condoms every time and pulled out.
Thank you@
