My girlfriend and I have engaged in mutual masturbation and oral sex. However, we never had proper insertion sex. On March 17th, there was an incident where some semen dropped near her vagina (mostly above in the pubic hair region), which I wiped off promptly and advised her to wash off the entire area with soap. However, to be on safe side she took a iPill within 7 hours. She got period like bleeding in the last week of March, which was normal in flow and lasted for approx. 4 days.
Then the problems started. We have continued occasional mutual oral sex after that incident. She complained of mild cramps around the same time in April, but didn't have any period. Same time in May (around 25th), she took a period inducing drug for 7 days. It has been 3 days since she took the last pill, but she still did not start her period.
She has done 3 HPTs in this last week. All have come out negative. She also does not have any pregnancy symptoms. What is wrong and can she still be pregnant?

Thanks for consulting us.
If you both are 100% sure that semen has never entered her vagina then naturally pregnancy is out of question. You have also confirmed that by doing home pregnancy tests.
You have mentioned her history of irregular cycles which may well be the reason of her delayed period. Since she was also having some cramps it would be wise to see a gynecologist & get a full evaluation.
There are a number of gynecological conditions which can present by irregular or delayed cycles & abdominal pain. Doctor will examine her & do necessary tests like pelvic ultrasound & may be some hormone tests to find out the route cause of her problem. This way a specific treatment can be offered to her.
Hope this is a helpful answer for you. Please write back if you have any more question.
Best regards.

Follow-up: Involved in oral sex. Having cramps. Delayed periods. Took period inducing drug. Pregnancy test negative. What to do? 18 minutes later
Well she had a complete profiling done by a local obgyn doctor on January, who had advised that she had a mild hormonal imbalance and had prescribed a vitamin for the same. She had been taking that vitamin course every month till April. Can this medication have some how reacted with the Morning after pill she took? And can i exclude pregnancy since already 3 HPTs are negative ? ANother point to add is that she did not experience any cramp/pain in May.

Welcome back & thanks for your question.

This is good to know that her pain has settled. I cannot comment on this issue as I don't know the exact medicine she was taking. You have to tell me the name precisely.
Home pregnancy tests are reasonably reliable but if you have doubts you may go for a blood pregnancy test (serum beta hCG) & a pelvic ultrasound. Both are very sensitive for an early pregnancy.
You should practice safe sex if you are not ready for a pregnancy.
Hope this clears your query please write back if you need more clarification.
Take care.
