Question: pregnancy....

 cielitico385 - Thu Jan 13, 2005 5:28 pm

I just recently had sex for the first time, and we used a condom and everything. Now I am not on a regular schedule with my period but it averages 26 days. My good friend just had a pregnancy scare which made me start worrying because I am at about the 25th/26th day and my period has not started yet. I have had my normal signs before my period starts (tender brests, some cramping, etc.) but still no bleeding. I am just worried and am wondering if either when you have sex the first time your period can tend to be late, or if there were the chance that I was pregnant do you get the normal signs of a period if you were to miss your period?

User avatar Hello,
There doesn't seem to be anything to worry about. If you had protected sexual intercourse and you are having your premenstrual syndrome symptoms already then you should expect a period soon.
Best regards,
