Patience!: Hang in there, the period will hopefully occur. Good for you for using condoms, but why not take this "opportunity of anxiety" to get on a more reliable form of birth control (pills, IUD, condoms with foam, contraceptive vaginal ring, etc.)? See your doctor, or visit Planned Parenthood. Sex is much more enjoyable when you aren't sweating out unplanned pregnancy! LGromkoMD

December 5: is when your girlfriend likely ovulated, assuming she expected to come on her period December 19. Potentially she could have conceived from the intercourse on December 2, as sperm can survive for up to 4 days - but you said you used a condom. Overall it is unlikely that your girlfriend is pregnant. If she has not come on her period in a week, do a pregnancy test.
