Hi, I am really worried as I am not getting my periods after having sex. I got my last periods on 2nd february 2012. I had sex after some days when the periods ended. I did use a condom and I don't think there was any leakage. I should have got my periods on 2nd march 2012 or after 6-9 days of 2nd March..... But I havent got my periods now also. I am in my teens and my periods usually come 6-9 days late.
I got a home pregnancy test yesterday and the result was negative. But I am worried as I want to be sure that I am not pregnant and as I am not getting my periods. I cannot get a pregnancy test or consult a gynaecologist about this matter. I did discuss this with my friends... But I really don't know how to be sure. Please give me your advice. I really need it.

Welcome to ehealthforum,
If semen or pre-cum has come in contact with vagina (condoms can have failures), chances of pregnancy are possible (chances are high if you are closer to your fertile days at the time of sexual contact). You become closer to your fertile days/ovulation time after finishing with your periods. Delay of 5-10 days is considered to be normal. It is difficult to comment of the pregnancy status without examining you. If you develop any new symptoms suggestive of pregnancy, or if periods have not started within 10 days of expected period dates, or if you suspect chances of pregnancy, visit your doctor/gynecologist for further examination (to confirm pregnancy related changes/signs in body) and blood/serum HCG level test (to confirm/rule out pregnancy accurately). If pregnancy gets ruled out, and if you are not ready for pregnancy, but intend to remain sexually active, you should consider visiting your gynecologist to get started on suitable regular birth control measures to be protected (after your periods). Be regular with birth control use as instructed. Avoid having unprotected sexual contact if you are not ready for pregnancy.
Take care.
