Reason for delayed periods? Having normal period symptoms. Had protected sex

Hello, I m 17 years old and a week late for my period. I should have got it last week but I m still late, I had protected sex with my boyfriend 4 weeks ago and during intercourse I got my period but her was wearing a condom. then I had my normal period it was light for 2 days then it was normal and got brownish towards the end. Since then I have not got my period at all. I keep having my normal period symptoms such as tender nipples, tiny small aches like I would get 3 days before period. But I m also getting some other weird signs like I never got before. I feel sick for no reason but not sick to the extend I need to throw up, I m constantly hot my body tmp is warm. I m so confused and worried. I also been researching the internet and I found out many things can delay periods such as, being stressed and my family has been stressing me out for a while so could course it, and also having sex can also delay your period. I don t know if its me being paranoid or if I am pregnant.

There is no need for worry.
The first week of menstrual cycle is safe period. Even if you have unprotected sex during this time it does not result in pregnancy. And after that you did not have sex at all. Am I right? SO THERE IS NO CHANCE OF YOU BEING PREGNANT.
There are several reasons for your period being delayed.
Occasionally a period can be delayed and this is normal. Physical stress like excessive exercise and emotional stress can also delay period.
The symptoms you are feeling could be due to hormone progesterone secreted in the second half of menstrual cycle.
Stop worrying and don't be stressed. You may start period in few days. If you don't get period by next week, consult your family physician and take progesterone to start your period.

I hope I have answered to your satisfaction. If you have any further concerns, do contact me through Healthcare Magic.
