  • Sometimes it can delay...sometimes it can make it come sooner. Your cycle is probably changing. Don't worry about it. And can't get pregnant that quickly if that's what you're worried about.

  • No, I've never heard of that.

  • Oh yes it can, it can also make it come early. Your cycle may be off due to many reasons, but if the only time you had sex was 1 day before your expected period there's less then a 1% chance your pregnant. Could happen, but really unlikely.

  • have you been having unprotected sex before that or having protected sex and something went wrong with the condom/bc I dont think it was the sex holding it off unless it is your first time I would take a pregnancy test

  • Unsure.

  • Sure it does....especially if you are having UNPROTECTED sex....can anyone say pregnancy? But if you have recently gotten off of birth control, your cycles can take a while to go back to normal. And if you don't want to be pregnant, then find SOME kind of protection! (They make non latex condoms)

  • That would always make mine come faster. Like if I was a day late and I got tired of checking, I would have sex that night and ended up waking in the morning with my period.
