This is the 2nd month in a row that my period has been late, advice please!

It has been two weeks since my boyfriend and I have had unprotected sex and we use the withdrawal method (and I know that is not a good decision). I am now 8 days late for my period, last time it was 7 days. But recently, I just started college and I know that stress can induce late periods. My periods were typically on time before college and college is rather stressful. Is there a chance that my cycle is adjusting to this? Should I take a pregnancy test?

Hello Anon

Thank you for writing!

Since you're having unprotected sex, a pregnancy test is a good idea.

If it's negative, your period may be delayed due to stress from college and recent life changes.
