"Spotting" can occur b/c of the pre-ovulatory drop in estogen, or from coital irritation of the cervix, but if your cycles are regular (24-32 days apart) , a delay in your menstruation can occur from pregnancy (if coitus began before the condom was put on), as pre-ejaculatory semen contains active sperm. Get a serum HCG test in five days, and if positive see your GYN physician .
