Why is my period late?

My boyfriend and I had unprotected sex on February 18th, and my period was due on March 2nd. It's March 3rd and no sign of it. I have a cycle of 30 days and my period has never been late. My boyfriend has never ejaculated inside of me before and we don't have intercourse if he has ejaculated in the last week. I know unprotected sex is a stupid thing to do, but we both allow it to happen so there is no fault.
Anyway, I'm wondering if I should stop worrying about my late period or if I am pregnant. I have no pregnancy symptoms whatsoever, and I have white/clear discharge that smells like menstrual blood. I have been emotionally stressed out this last month and I have heard that stress can delay a period. I just don't know what to think. Could I be pregnant or just stressed out?

Hi Anon,

Welcome to EmpowHER.  Anytime you have unprotected intercourse your chances for a pregnancy to occur are higher.  Stress can also cause delays in a woman's ovulation period and menstruation. Since your period is late, you might want to try taking a home pregnancy test. Hope this was helpful?
