I haven’t had my period in 2 months, we used protection, and as far as I know there was no issue with that. I’ve had one period right after we had sex, and nothing since then. My question is whether or not I could be pregnant? I don’t have access to pregnancy tests or anything like that. 

If you haven’t had sex since you had your last period, it’s highly unlikely that you’re pregnant, and you probably don’t need to take a pregnancy test. It’s common to have light spotting or bleeding in early pregnancy, but it wouldn’t be like your normal period. 

You can have a late period or skip it altogether for lots of reasons — stress, being sick, using hormonal birth control, or just being a teenager. Plus, if you used a condom without any issue, you’re almost certainly not pregnant. Condoms are super effective at preventing pregnancy when you use them correctly. 

But if the period you did have was super light, or if you DID have sex since the last time you had your period and you didn’t use a condom correctly, pregnancy may still be possible. 

Getting a pregnancy test may not be as easy as it was before COVID-19. Social distancing and staying home can get in the way of a lot of things. You said you don’t have access to a pregnancy test, but keep these options in mind as ways to get one if you need it.

Hope this helps!
