Hard to speculate: What you think is safe sex may not have been so safe.Condoms have a failure rate of 20%/yr and are often used wrong. If any intercourse happened before you put it on, you can leak enough sperm to cause pregnancy.Some girls can be late and nothing be wrong, they are just late. If a urine pregnancy test is positive she is pregnant.But it can be falsely negative early in pregnancy.
