Hi, and thanks for your medical question on eHealth forum!

If you were expecting a period at the end of December and had sex during that week, then you were close to your ovulation date. So if the condom came off and you have still not had your period, take a pregnancy test and see.

If the test is negative and a period does not come within a week, then repeat the test and if it is still negative consult your gynecologist. Hope this helps. Take care!
