Missed period - just started being sexually active

Hi, I am 22 years old. I'm not sure when my last period was, but I know that it is now at least 5 or 6 weeks ago now. I normally have regular periods, even though I dont keep track of them, they're never excessively late or dont come at all. My boyfriend and I have recently become sexually active. He has been giving me oral sex and fingering me, although I have yet to do anything to him and he hasnt even taken his underwear off in bed since we both agree me getting pregnant is not a risk worth taking. As far as I am aware, he hasnt come while in bed with me; if he had I'm sure he would have told me, and I would have noticed, so I'm pretty sure I'm not pregnant. I have an appointment to see the doctor this week about starting an appropriate form of contraception. This is my first boyfriend, so I have never been sexually active before, but now my boyfriend is giving me oral sex and fingering me at least twice a week. Could this be causing my period to be late/missing, and if so, should I be worried? Many thanks

I havent really been stressed lately, if anything I've been more laid back over the Christmas holidays! He's been doing things to me with his mouth and hands for about 5 weeks now, I'm pretty sure it was just after my last period. I know hormones can affect periods, and I'm wondering if becoming active in this way had affected my hormones and so my period. I'm getting a bit worried that my period hasnt come, since I've never missed one before, and paranoid that by some unlikely accident I've become pregnant without his penis being inside me.


Well, it is very smart of you to consider contraception with you decision to become sexually active.... I dont think that sexual activity would hold up your period, and going to the OBGYN is probably the best choice... If you have recently been stressed out that could be the cause of your late period but a doctor is the best person to consult... I hope this helps you somewhat.
