Did the condom break?
To put your mind at ease, go to the drug store and buy a home pregnancy test, or call a planned parenthood, and get tested for free, confidentially.
If your having sex...anything is possible, but if protection was used, and the condom did not break, the chances of pregnancy are small. Missed and irregular periods are pretty common, and can happen for a lot of reasons...and stressing over a late period can cause it to be even later.
