ask: Y is my period really late? Pregnant?

By Anonymous
Rate This

Im confused. I have never experienced sex before. Never. But why is my period late? Im stressing out about this. Im paranoid almost with anything. Im scared. What if we did some fingering? Could i get pregnant with that? Could he have semen on his hands even if he said he was clean and he never ejaculates if he finger. Could sperm travel if he did not notice that he brushed his hand over his penis while clothed? Is pregnancy at high risk or even possible without deliberately putting semen in my vag? =/ help!!

No fingering can not get you pregnant. Like i previously said, without intercourse is unlikely you will be pregnant.  It might be hormonal imbalance, stress and many other conditions.  If you are still concerned, please visit your doctor.

any suggestions on how to lessen my stress? no matter how hard i try to chill regarding my anxiety regarding pregnancy, i just.. cant stop thinking about it. my boyfriend even reassures me that we've been doing this for months, and he's always clean and cautious. :s

Hi Anon,

You might want to take a pregnancy test if you feel you are late on your period.  That will help you to stop stressing about it.

its really hard getting PT here especially if you're young and all. im only in my teens, and somehow i am irregular (i am often late regarding my period, and sometimes my period arrives earlier than expected). all im asking if pregnancy through fingering be possible? we've been doing this for months and i always had my period. although there was one month i was i think more than a week late. and the two months following i had my period earlier than expected. im just wondering if this no show period be normal for a teen, somehow irregular and under stress from school and thinking i could be pregnant.

Hi Anon,

Welcome to EmpowHER.  Without penetration or intercourse is unlikely you will be pregnant. It might be good to take a pregnancy test this will help you to know indeed if you are.  If you have a delay on your period it can also be due to stress. 

Here is a link that might be helpful
