Is there a chance my period won't start?

I had unprotected sex on Friday and my period is supposed to start either today or Wednesday. I am scared I might be pregnant and I'm scared my period won't start. My last period was on February 14th.

Hi Anonymous,
Having unprotected sex is the way to get pregnant. The stress of worrying that you might be pregnant can cause a delay in the start of your period.

Try to relax, it may start in a few days. If you are late by one week, take a home pregnancy test. Read and follow the directions carefully to get accurate results.

To prevent this from happening again, you need to use some form of birth control regularly,
