Prob not: If you truly had your period after sex and no sex since, then you're not pregnant. Rare but possible to have bleeding from other cause that's mistaken for period but again that's uncommon. If you have any doubt, then go ahead and check a urine preg test. ...Read more

I had dry sex with my bf, I had underwear on he didn't but my period is 2 weeks late, can I be pregnant?

Semen: If any semen got thru your underwear, which aren't barriers like a condom is then its possible. Though its not real likely, I would check a pregnancy test. Probably time to use a condom even for this type of activity and get on some birth control. ...Read more

Does the plan b pill make your future period late? I got my period a week after taking the pill but now my period is 5 days late. Pregnant? Or normal?

Plan B: Plan B is 88% effective but can make your period late. After 5 days, I wouldn't assume this is the cause. You can get a home pregnancy test at the drugstore without a prescription. Its the fastest way to find out for sure if you are (or are not) pregnant. Best wishes! ...Read more

I am 48, friend is 59. He did not enter my vagina all the way because his penis went soft. Period is 2 weeks late. Can I be pregnant or menepause?

I am 48, friend is 59. He did not enter my vagina all the way because his penis went soft. Period is 2 weeks late. Can I be pregnant or menepause?

Age old question: I get a sense you do not want this to be menopause, but at 48 are you really asking if a pregnancy can occur without sperm? I will not assume you do not know how pregnancy occurs or how babies are made, but without fresh sperm deep inside of the vagina on the five days you are specifically fertile then there can be no pregnancy. ...Read more

Pregnancy not likely: Hello Sativa,

It is not unusual to have an occasional variation in the start time of our periods. We are very busy ladies and we have lots of influences that effect us in every way. If the pregnancy tests are negative then I would be relatively sure that I did not conceive this cycle ...Read more

Had protected sex for the first time 3 weeks ago now girl friends period a week late still not here she stressed she pregnant why could this be?

Had protected sex for the first time 3 weeks ago now girl friends period a week late still not here she stressed she pregnant why could this be?

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. ...Read more

Period came on time for the past 4 months had unprotected sex now period a week late but negative pregnancy test. Could I still be pregnant?

Tests are accurate: Home pregnancy tests are very accurate and not affected by foods, herbs, common illnesses, sexually transmitted diseases, or medications. A correctly done urine test gives a reliable result 3 weeks after sex (3 weeks after when conception might have happened) or 1 week after missing a period. If done sooner, a positive result is likely real, but a negative result may be due to testing too soon. ...Read more
