Pregnant, stressed or late period?

I've never had sex, but 3 weeks ago on March 7th, I was fingered, my companion and I were both aroused and he had put his hand down his trousers beforehand, he was erect, he didn't ejaculate though - I worry that he might have gotten sperm on his fingers before touching me.
I have looked many times on the internet and seen that you can get pregnant this way, and looking back on it, I was not bleeding at the time, but I was still ovulating when he did it.

I've seen that the chances of getting pregnant from having unprotected sex is still rather slim ( though risky still ) so I hope that in what I did, the chances would be slimmer, I tried to comfort myself with that and calm myself down, but I've got an immense headache and found I often want to cry because I'm so stressed about it; I'm 3 days late of when I expected my period to start, usually it's from 30-40, but the mode occurance is 32, it's now the 35th day and still nothing yet. With this much stress I wonder if I'm just delaying it, - I'm a twin and my sister said she's once missed her period entierly because of stress, so genetically, I expect the same could happen to me. That's not something I want to do considering my circumstances, but I can't help stressing about it. Especially when on the 40th day of when my period might start, it's my birthday. My periods are very heavy and very very painful in comparason to most girls my age ( 17 ) So I don't want it to start then and ruin the day.

I work out alot, recently I've been doing alot of stomach crunches and situps ( I bodybuild and almost have a six pack - yes, I'm an odd person ) I've been getting some mild occasional cramps, and I feel like I should be on now, no blood however, so I wonder if it's just me mistaking muscle ache for mild period cramps.

I really do not want anyone to know about this and my time table is hectic as it is, so visiting a doctor or getting a test from a chemist without being suspicious will be difficult.

Any sort of help? <:( what are the chances of me being pregnant?

Hi Paranoid,

You can try the test once you miss your period. I find in my experience that when I think I am pregnant, I get a bit stressed, buy a test, it comes out negative and I start my period the following day. :-) It is as if my fear makes my period late and once I know, the stress is gone and my body returns to normal.

This may calm your fears, so take a test and see what the results are. If you have a Dollar Store by you, you can usually purchase them for only $1.00 plus tax but are commonly hidden behind the counter so you may have to ask for one.

Keep us posted on the results. Good Luck!

Thankyou! Do you know if the higher priced ones are more accurate? After half listening to adverts about them, I wonder if accuracy is a problem with these things.
