I am 42. Had protected sex and my partner pulled out when he ejaculated. My period is delayed for about 10 days now. Am I pregnant? What causes the delay?

Hello Anon

Thank you for writing.

Take a pregnancy test to know for sure where you stand.

Stress can delay periods so if your test is negative that may be the cause. At 42, your cycle may be starting to change as you enter the period before menopause.
