I had sex for the first time on April 18. On may 6th i got my period. Around June 7th i also recieved my period. It is July 10th and i havent gotten my period. I haven't exactly had intercourse since my first time but my boyfriends naked penis did touch my vagina for a few seconds, but there was no cum on it. This was in the middle of June. My period usually comes between the 6th and the 9th of the month and i dont remember ever being late before. I don't think that it's possible that i'm pregnant but I still don't know whats going on. Please help

Thanks for your response. You do not have to be a certain age to purchase a test. There are several places where you can purchase tests: drug stores, dollar stores, grocery stores and even stores such as WalMart. The Dollar Stores are the cheapest places to go and you can usually pick one up for one dollar plus tax.

Being concerned and stressed out by the thought of pregnancy can certainly make your period late also. If you have any other questions, please feel free to reply to this post. We will certainly help you in any way possible. Keep us updated.

Hi Anon

Welcome to EmpowHer and thanks for your question.

While it's likely you are not pregnant, there is always a slight chance of pregnancy when there is unprotected sexual contact like you describe. There may have been sperm or semen on his penis - you would not be able to know unless your eyes were right down there, which is impossible! And it may not necessarily have been visible.

Your best bet is to take a pregnancy test. You are only a day or two late so don't panic! But a test will let you know and please remember to always use reliable protection every time you engage in sexual activity, not just intercourse.

Will you take a test and update us?
