Feb and periods and not even late yet, just worrying

I was wondering about Feb being such a short month if it has an impact on cycles. My last three cycles were feb-Jan 31 days, Jan-Dec 27 days and Dec Nov 33 days. I had protected sex twice in Feb, and my periods are so irregular they are hard to predict, and I'm just so concerned about missing my period that I am worried sick....I was pregnant once before but terminated the pregnancy a few years ago (which is the first time I've really ever admitted this to a whole bunch of people...please don't judge me, I'm already being punished with a fear and hatred of sex). I am 25 years old, and have had protected sex/such a hate for sex that I hate having it with my boyfriend (irrelevant). I know I'm not even late yet, but I'm just so afraid of being late that I get panicked even if my period doesn't come at the same time of day.

So I guess my question is, can a short month affect your cycle? Because if it does, my counting might be really off.

Okay, well, nevermind. I got my period this morning, which is such a BIG relief. Sorry for freaking out. I'm so glad to have my period that I don't care that I am having DEBILITATING cramps!

Also, to add, I forgot we had sex a third time on the 15th, but we always use protection (he didn't finish). This is seriously embarrassing to admit but >.<, sometimes when I finish first I let him grind me on my back, and he uses a condom or paper towel, and it rarely gets on my back, but on the 28th (and possibly the 15th), a very small amount got on my back, and he said he got it all off and I even made him use a Stridex pad to be extra sure, but then I used one on the same spot, and used another to clean my fingers off, and then I itched the opening of my vagina. I know this is so far fetched and so out there, but that is the exact thing that would happen to me when it comes to sex. anyway, sorry for going on and on, but I'm so stressed out I've had a mild upset stomach for an entire 24 hours now- which is not helping!
