Dr, i had several times protected sex with my gf this month. Actually 4-5 times using condom every single time. But now her period is delayed a week already with no symptoms. She might be stressed because of relationship ups and downs and 1-2 weeks before her period she had been really stressed until crying. We haven't had pregnancy test taken. She does not suspect anything because i do not want her to worry. Please help, we are not ready for a child. am i just being paranoid?

Hello Anonymous,

Welcome to EmpowHER. Thank you for reaching out to our community with your concern about your girlfriend's late period.

You are very responsible to use a condom, each and every time you have intercourse.

High stress levels can cause a delay in the start of a period. During periods of prolonged stress, the body produces more of the hormone, cortisol. High levels of cortisol can trigger the body to shut down nonessential functions, including the menstrual cycle.

If she is not concerned about her period being late, no need to bring up the subject. Help her to relax, and her period should start soon.
