Delayed mensus.

Hello Doctor,

I got intimated with my boyfriend on 19 May 2017 with protection. Though he didn't ejaculate inside, i still took i-pill after 3 hours to be safe from any kind of repercussions.
My cycle starts from 10-13th day of the month. After the intercourse, i got my normal periods on 11th June and 13th of July, though the duration was shortened to 3 days from usual 4 days. I was expecting my periods between 10-15th of August but it's 26 today and nothing has showed up yet.

Could I be pregnant ?

I've done a home pregnancy test on 23rd of Aug and it has come negative. Shall I do it again ? If not then what could be the reason of delayed mensus ?

Please doctor help me out as I don't want any such thing before marrying him. I would rather chose to die than to face this. My family is very strict and there's nobody here to talk to.
Please provide me the best help

Hi, Anon.

Thank you for posting.

If you are having your periods that's proof you are not pregnant, which your test results have indicated. Many things can impact a woman's cycle and cause a delay, stress, illness, a change in lifestyle. Our hormones dictate this. Your period will come in due time.
