Missed period

A couple of weeks ago, my boyfriend fingered me on two separate occasions (no penetration, only touching the vulva and the clitoris). Both times, he hadn't touched his penis at all (we were both fully clothed), but had touched the outside of his pants. Both times, before he touched me, he washed his hands with soap and dried them, but his hands were still a tiny bit damp when he touched me. These two incidences are the only sexual activities I have engaged in since my last period. I thought that we had taken necessary precautions, but my period hasn't come this month (it is now day 47 out of my usual 33 day cycle). Is it possible for me to be pregnant from this? The last couple of days, I have gotten some white (not clear), incredibly stretchy discharge, as well as some gummy and tacky pale yellow discharge. Today, I had a wave of nausea overcome me for no apparent reason. Last week, I had some lower back pain. Other than this, I have had no other symptoms of pregnancy. Is it possible that I may be pregnant, or is there another reason why I could have missed my period? I'm very worried, I'm in my early 20's, I've never skipped a period before, and it's certainly never been this late before. What are some other possible explanations for missing a period that aren't pregnancy? Any help would be much appreciated.

Hi Anon

There is no possible way a finger can get your pregnant.  It's very concerning that you think it could - if you feel you could do with sex ed, then please go through our site for lots of information. You can start here: 


Your period may be late from stress or hormonal fluctuations.
