My girlfriend missed her period, should I be worried ?

My girlfriend s period is about five days late. The day she was supposed to get her period we took a pregnancy test, and it was negative. She s still worried and I m even more worried. Over the last month there was a week or so where she barely ate. Could that and the stress be the cause of the missed period? I m really getting worried, but if the test said no, should I be? Sex was always protected with spermicidal condoms.

Yes, a missed period could very well be due to stress. Tell her to relax. It's weird, but if she thinks she's pregnant, her body will actually act like she's pregnant. Don't think about it. If the test came back negative, relax a little; take another if it helps calm both of you.

We had sex for the first time exactly 5 days ago.(6-10-11) we did have safe sex , I did use condoms I was really careful with this kind of situation. But the problem is that im getting worry because my girlfriend is telling me she is scared because she hasn t gotten her period.(its been 5 days already that she hasn t gotten her period) We do believe its probably her stressing out if shes pregnant or not? Im really worry I don t know what to do? Im not ready to be a dad? And I know my girlfriend is not ready to be a mom either. I do care alot for my girlfriend, I felt responsible enough to have sex but now I don t feel responsible enough to think about this?... please I need your help I don t know what to do?

I am 62 years of age. Six feet one inch and 168 pounds. I am married and have been for 35 years. The marriage is very affectionate but largely sexless. I am unable to maintain an erection with my wife. Two years ago, much to my regret, I got into another relationship that ended 6 months ago. We never had penetrative sex, she gave me oral sex. I half entered her just once, and then for a couple of minutes only before discontinuing. I have been checked out for 'standard' STIs - chlamydia, gonnorrhea, syphilis, HIV, and shown clear. This was after I started to worry about having contracted something. I had some urinary difficulties that my GP felt were probably a UTI, and I was treated with Cipro. The current difficulty is that I started to focus on my penile area when I first began to sorry about it. Since then, I have noticed an almost constant tingling/burning in my penis (this has been over a period of probably 6-8 weeks. It seems to affect the end of the penis and the underside. There are no lesions.sores to be seen. It seems not to be there when I wake up, but worsens as the day goes on. I also seem to feel a tingling in the sole of my left foot. I suspect if may be psychosomatic, as it seemed to coincide with me first worrying about an STI. It also seems to be absent when I am distracted. My concern is whether there could be a clinical reason
