i have had no symptoms as such and i am just a little worried. i have not taken pregnancy test yet.to answer your questions, i am 25 yo. i have a history of pcos but my periods were somewhat regular for past 6 months/. there were no visible tear as such.

Thanks for all these additional information.

I understand your concern.

Well as you describe,with protected sex,chances of pregnancy are very less likely if there is no tear in condom.

You are most likely safe and there is no need to worry.

You should do urine pregnancy test after a week from your missed period with a morning urine sample for a precautionary measure.

Other possible cause may include PCOS,hormonal imbalance.

Let me know if you have any further query so we can discuss it thoroughly in every aspect.

Customer: replied 1 month ago.
should i be on a lookout for any symptoms?
Customer: replied 1 month ago.
i also have some more questions. i looked up online and saw that when women ovulate they see an egg white mucousy discharge which i remember i saw around 8th thru 10th of september. is it true?

Thanks for the follow-up.

Still chances of pregnancy are less with protected sex.

Nausea,bloating,lightheadedness can be early symptoms however they can confirm pregnancy.

As per your last menstrual period,your ovulation has occurred around 30th August.

Hope this helps.

but what could be the reason of not having any periods after ovulation besides pregnancy?

As such there can be a variety of causes of missed period like hormonal imbalance, weight gain, weight loss,PCOD,thyroid dysfunction,recent illness.

Hope this helps.

Also I still don't have an bleeding. Should I have had any symptoms except for a missed period by now?

You should wait for next 3 days.

If you wouldn't get period then do urine pregnancy test with morning urine sample.

If it 'll be negative then see your doctor for further evaluation and management.

Hope this helps.

Customer: replied 1 month ago.
okay i tried urine test today and both came negative. i will do another one 3 days from now and see the results.

As we have initially discussed already that chances of pregnancy are very less likely so you can go for repeat testing for confirmation.

Hi the test came out negative
Customer: replied 29 days ago.
Did the test with the morning urine

So you are not pregnant.

And you shouldn't worry about it at all.

You should see your doctor and your doctor may advise some form of progesterone to induce period and further investigations like ultrasound ,blood work like Thyroid function test, LH ,FSH etc may be advised for further diagnosis and management.

Hope this helps.

I wish for your good health.
