the last time i got my period was november 8th. i went off birth control in may and since then i have been very irregular. 7 days after i got my period i was fooling around with my boyfriend and i got semen on my hands and wiped it off with a tissue. not thinking, i used the same tissue and wiped my vagina on it. we did not have sex though. now i am 5 days late and have all of the symptoms of getting my period: cramps, breast tendorness, back aches, mood swings...but it hasnt come yet. i am usually never this late on my period. my boyfriend thinks im over reacting but is there a good chance im pregnant?

If you're late, you can take a pregnancy test. There's no telling if any semen got inside your vagina from the tissue, so it would be a good idea to test now.

Have you considered going back on birth control to help regulate your periods again?

Stress and your period
from a medical point of view, it is not likely that the sperm would be able to reach the egg if it was only on the external part of the vagina. Your late period could be caused by a number of things and the most common would be that you may be stressed. Stress is known to cause women to have late periods so the more you stress about being late, chances are, the later your period will come. MY suggestion would be for you to get back on birth control to regulate your cycle.

I have had 2 home tests neg. And one urine test at the doctor neg. I strongly feel im pregnant. I feel its just too soon to tell on a test.
