First, here's the story as I know it.
I recently started seeing a girl and we are very serious about our relationship. I didn't know it until recently, but she was sexually abused as a young child and she fears that her innards may be irreparably damaged. I have heard of people being barren because of such abuse from years before. Is that possible? Next question.
She was kicked out of her parents' house the day of her eighteenth birthday and she started living with her ex boyfriend because she had no place to stay. The agreement(she had little choice but to accept) was that she could live there as long as she put out. She couldn't afford a place of her own so she had to do what she had to do.
When I came along she jumped at the chance to get out of that environment. She is really a very innocent girl, and she didn't want to be around all the drugs and sex that she had been a part of her whole life.
The problem is that she is now a week past due for her period. She is worrying that a condom must have failed when she was with her ex, even though she has taken two pregnancy tests(both say she's not pregnant) and she is getting cramps like she's about to start her period.
I'd like to know if it is possible to be a week late and not pregnant, and could this be a serious medical issue? Could she be "plugged up" or something?
Missed period & much more
First, here's the story as I know it.
I may be omniscient, but don't expect me to know everything.
Her period oculd be late due to stress, I've had a few late ones and a missed one due to stress. also if she changed her diet, or is getting heavy exercise.
Pinatas promote violence against flamboyant animals.
I agree that it's probably stress.
It's possible for very bad abuse to cause internal damage, but nothing you have told us so far gives any evidence of it. But there's plenty of evidence her ex-boyfriend is a bastard.
I'm kinda new here, I found this site months ago and have gotten many questions answered by just reading and not posting but now I have a question of my own to ask. This situation is the closest to the one I'm in so I figured this is good place to start. I know for sure that the condom broke last time I had sex with my boyfriend and my period is about a week late. I'm really worried because I'm usually on a very regular schedule. The thing is, this isn't the first time a condom has failed on us, in fact it's happened so much that my boyfriend can feel it as soon as it breaks and pulls out right away. I've always been lucky before and my period comes on time. I'm worried that I could be pregnant (with me being a week late and all) but it just seems like the chances are so low, my boyfriend hadn't ejaculated yet, we stopped immediately and I've read the chances of getting pregnant without a comdom only reach 30%. I haven't taken a test yet because I was waiting to see if my period came or not. I'm taking one tomorrow so I guess I'll know for sure. I'm just so scared, I did feel better reading that late periods can be caused by stress because I've been really stressed out the last week (I dunno if I have money for school, I haven't even registered for classes, my job is stressful and requires long hours, my car broke down a few days ago). I guess I'm just looking for some statistics and such here, like, what do you all think the chances are? I could really use some imput here.

If condoms are regularly breaking, something is wrong. The condoms may be old; they may be being stored in a warm place (like a wallet in a pocket, or a car); you may be using oil-based lubricants; or the condoms may be the wrong size. Whatever it is needs to be traced down and fixed.
Since your boyfriend hadn't ejaculated the chances of pregnancy must be low, and it's probably stress - but the test will give you a more definite answer.
