Anita, age 18, writes, I’m 18 years old, with a very regular period and I nearly never break out. So, I never have had vaginal sex, however I have had oral sex with my boyfriend. I gave him a blow job and then kissed him and he ate me out, and I’m worried that some sperm may have travelled into my vagina. I also don’t know if my hymen is broken or not (I’m a dancer if that helps any). Anyways, my period is a day or so late, I’m a bit bloated/gasey, tired, have been breaking out, I think I lost a pound or two, my breasts are sore and heavier than usual but no sign of a period (I had cramps yesterday-Monday, but they went away.) I’m nervous I may be pregnant despite the fact I’m still basically a virgin. I’ve also started a new job working 40 hour weeks (never worked before) and I’m a bit stressed about doing a good job to impress my employers. Is it stress or pregnancy?

Most likely your skipped or delayed period is being caused by stress with a mixture of nerves. The probability for you to get pregnant based on the situation you described (I’m assuming he ejaculated during your blow job?) is very slim. I’d conjecture that most girls have their hymens broken by the time they have their first vaginal sex (a tampon will break it, as will masturbating by putting an object into your vagina). You could take a home pregnancy test in a couple days, but my bet is that it will come back negative, because it would be very hard to get pregnant through sperm passing from your mouth to his mouth and then into your vagina.
