Last month I had protected sex. I think the condom broke but the guy says that it didn't. The day that we had sex was the day I was ovulating according to my periods tracker..... I wasnt really stressing about it until recently when I realized that I was a whole week late. I have a regular period that usually comes on like day 29 of my cycle. As of today, I am 10 days late. And having no signs that my period is coming like I usually do. I've also been having some constipation which isn't normal for me either. Could this be a serous problem ?
Welcome to ehealthforum,
Condoms are associated with failures, and if you had been around your ovulation time at the time of intercourse and if semen or pre-cum has come in contact with vagina, chances of pregnancy are possible. Delay in periods, constipation, and absence of usual PMS symptoms, can suggest pregnancy possibility. Wait and watch for your periods. Look out for development of any other new symptoms if pregnancy is suspected. If pregnancy is suspected, or if you get abnormal periods, or if periods do not start within 10 days of expected period date, or if symptoms suggestive of pregnancy are persistent, consider visiting your doctor/gynecologist at the earliest for thorough examination (to confirm pregnancy related changes/signs in body) and blood/serum HCG level test (to confirm/rule out pregnancy accurately). Be in regular monitoring and follow-up with your treating doctor/gynecologist and report any new/abnormal symptoms immediately. Drink plenty of water. Take adequate rest. Maintain healthy diet and lifestyle.
