Pregnancy requires unprotected intercourse with a male capable of ejaculating sperm into your vaginal tract. Self masturbation cannot result in pregnancy. Missed periods are most likely due to hormone fluctuations caused by stress, weight gain/loss, exercise, lack of sleep, ovarian cysts or other problems. If the problem persists, see your Dr for evaluation.

Pregnancy is not possible in above mentioned circumstances. You might have a UTI and/or menstrual disturbances that are extremely common. Talk to your doc about your current symptoms.

If you did not have sex with a man, you are not pregnant. Menstrual irregularities are not uncommon and anovulatory cycle is a common cause. If you miss more than two periods it would be time to see your doctor. If you do not wish to be pregnant, use contraception all the time. http://www.nichd.nih.gov/health/topics/menstruation/conditioninfo/Pages/causes.aspx
