Unsure about pregnancy - what do I do?

Dear Ask The Doctor:
We had sex in end december and the condom tore,i had a normal period in january but nou i am 5 days late we didnt have unprotected sex and we were save tis tinme could i still be pregnant?


Answer:

It is unlikely for you to be pregnant if you've had your periods in jan and did not have unprotected sex after. Stress is a common cause of delayed periods. If however, you do not have your periods in another 2 weeks, consider doing a home pregnancy test just to be sure.
