Pregnancy Confirmation

I am 23. We had intercourse a month before, safely with Condoms only. Now I am missing my Periods for last 1.5 weeks. But I am not having any other Symptoms regarding Breast Hardening or any Health changes. Is missing period after a month of Intercourse is a enough factor to Confirm Pregnancy? I don't like to get Pregnant right now, Please Suggest me Habits or Methods to follow to prevent Pregnancy, if it be possible in this stage.

Hello, Anon.

Thank you for your post today.

It's good that a condom was used. Condoms, when used correctly and consistently—prevent pregnancy about 98 percent of the time. If I am understanding you correctly, your period is 1 1/2 weeks late. It's not uncommon to experience an occasional late (or early) period. Try to relax and wait for it to arrive. You can always take a home pregnancy test to ease your mind, then you will know for sure.

Below is a link to Planned Parenthood that will give you information on other forms of birth control you can use in addition to your partner using a condom.

Thank you.. I did my Home Pregnancy Test. Result is Negative only. So, Is this enough to make Sure that I wont get pregnant? or I need to take it again after a week or sometime until I get my Periods?
Please Clear me.

If you did the test correctly, following the instructions on the box, and had a negative result, that indicates you are not pregnant. The only way to be sure you won't become pregnant is to not have unprotected sex. Use condoms (which you did) plus, as I mentioned earlier, you might want to get on some form of birth control for even more protection. Only you can "clear" yourself by being proactive about your sexual health.
