Hello. My period is 2 days late and I'm getting quite scared. I have PMS symptoms like mood swings, sore breasts, eating a lot, and acne but I have not had a period yet. I've never had sexual intercourse the only thing my boyfriend and I have done was dry hump. Although I was wearing thin pants (leggings) while he was on top of me, is it possible to get pregnant this way? He never ejaculated. I don't remember if he had sweatpants on or if he was wearing nothing. But I'm getting scared and I'm not sure if it's likely you can get pregnant this way.

Breast tenderness. which can range from mild to severe, is a premenstrual symptom. It is also a symptom of early pregnancy.

During the menstrual cycle, estrogen production increases and peaks just prior to midcycle. This causes enlargement of the breast ducts. Premenstrually, progesterone peaks near the 21st day (in a 28-day cycle) and causes growth of the breast lobules (milk glands).

With pregnancy, the breasts are preparing for lactation (milk production). The tenderness is the result of the breast growth and development. Breast tenderness may also be caused by an increase in hormone the levels of estrogen and progesterone during pregnancy, which causes blood to rush to your breasts.

I was also wondering if tingly breasts are also a sign of a period coming? Because my breasts feel tingly and I've read that it's a sign of pregnancy.

No, it is not possible to get pregnant with dry humping. Being late by 2 days is nothing to get too worried about. It is normal for the start of a period to vary from one month to the next month.

Try to relax, because stress can cause your period to be late.
