Several causes: There are several causes for delayed cycle and negative pregnancy test. Glad to see that you made an appointment as it is difficult to know what may be the cause without an evaluation. This may require blood work or possibly a pelvic ultrasound. Most of the time, the delay is because of benign reasons.

Yes: Bcp use is not associated with any significant incidence of breast cancer regardless of risk factors, however, certain breast cancers can grow in response to estrogen use. It is advised to begin cancer screening 10 years before your mother was first diagnosed with breast cancer. This should include yearly physician exam and mammography, ultrasound, and/or mri, depending on age and risk factors.

Yes: You will prob need ovulatory help with Clomid (clomiphene) and a shot of HCG or im drugs so you should see an infertlity subspecialist as you will need close monitoring during the process.

Depends: During sexual activity there are many points when sperm containing sexual fluids can leak & contaminate fingers or end up at your vaginal opening apart from the main event. If none of this fluid had access to your vagina, you can't get pregnant from sex using an alternative site.
