    I've only ever had sex a few times, with a significant time period between each of them. The first time I did, my period ended up being two and a half weeks late - a relief when it finally arrived, as you can guess! After that, my periods went back into their normal cycle until the next time I did, when, again, I was two weeks late. As with the time before, my cycle then remained normal until now, when I had sex about a week ago; my period was due 5 days ago and it still hasn't arrived.

    I'm not completely regular with my periods, but I'm never more than a couple of days out either side unless I've actually been with another person. I've always used protection and my timing in general would make it unlikely that I would be pregnant anyway. Is it just a normal thing for sex to delay your period, or is it something I should check out, seeing as it's happened every time so far?

    Sounds like it might just be you worrying after each time, because stress and worry can delay a period if it happens around the ovulating stage. I'd talk to a doctor just to make sure.

    I don't think it's worry, especially as this has now happened a few times, so I'm not concerned about pregnancy or anything like that. I'll try and see someone about it to make sure - it's just a bit strange!
