Thanks for writing to us.

At outset I would suggest you to relax and don't be tense.

Though the sexual act between you and your boyfriend took place during your fertile period,but there is nothing to worry as your boyfriend used condom and pulled out, so this sexual act was fully protected.
It is advisable for you to wait for a week, hopefully menstruation will occur.
If menstruation doesn't occur even after one weed and go for pregnancy test.
If pregnancy test comes out to be positive, (chances of which are very very less) further course of action can be discussed.

Hope this answers your question.
Let me know if you have any more queries.Take care.

i had used an antibiotic for my immune system. i had the virus really bad. Do you think this might have delayed my period?

Hi, thanks for your follow up.

Antibiotics usually don't interfere with menstrual cycle; still I want to know what antibiotic you used.
Kindly name the antibiotic used and I can comment further.

Hope this answers your question.

Take care
