On birth control, sexually active. Periods delayed, depressed, moody. Possible reasons?

Hello Doctor, My girlfriend and I have been sexual active for some time. She uses birth control everyday at 10:00pm (she has a time set on her iPhone to remind her). I also use condoms for the record. This month we had sex and I did penetrate without a condom, but only for a few moments (10-15 seconds) before I pulled out and put on a condom. She started being very moody yesterday, and spent all day crying for (what it seemed to be) no apparent reason. I blamed it on PMS , however today her period is due and she hasn t gotten it. She still claims to be very moody, depressed and is very worried about pregancy, after all, she is only 18 and I m 20. I tried to tell her that her emotions could be effecting her cycle but to be honest, I m no expert. For the record, I never ever ejaculated inside her. It always always always is in the condom. Can you please provide an expert opinion? Thank you very very much!

Thanks for the query.

Since she takes oral contraceptive pills with a backup of barrier contraceptive, her chances of pregnancy are very minimum.
Delay in menstrual cycle could be because of hormonal imbalance, Ovarian cyst, stress, weight gain/loss.
Wait for one more week and get a urine pregnancy test done.
Following which an ultrasound to be more sure.
