Missed period

My period is currently five days late! My husband and I use condoms during sex, and I am not on any type of other birth control. Within the past month, we decided that, during sex, we would wait a bit longer before he put a condom on. So, he would come inside me for about a minute, then, come out and put a condom on before ejaculation. In past month, we have done this four times.

One evening after sex, we spontaneously decided to repeat. After having sex the first time, my husband used toilet paper to dry off his penis after removing his condom. About an hour passed between our first and second times having sex that night. The second time, he came inside me briefly before putting a condom on, but he did not ejaculate before a condom was applied.

This evening occurred three weeks after my last period.

Do you think it is likely I am now pregnant? My period is now five days late. Two days after my period was expected to come, I used a Home Pregnancy Test, and the result was negative. Today is my fifth day being late, so I used another HPT. The result was again negative. I believe I used the tests correctly.

Thank you. I have one more question. I would like to delete my account. I looked up other questions concerning this issue, and the advice given didn't help at all. The other advisers said that there was a "Delete" button under account setting. There is not button there or anywhere else under my personal information. Could you delete my account for me? I am positive I would like to delete it.

Hi Janet Beasley,

Welcome to EmpowHER. Anytime you have unprotected sex your chances of pregnancy is possible.  If you are late five days and your pregnancy tests are negative. It might be good to see your OBGYN.  He might take blood work, to determine if indeed you are pregnant.
