Can I be pregnant?

I've been having sex with my boyfriend for quite a while now and we had protected sex on the 28th which was one of my most fertile days. However,the condom broke.He did not cum inside me though. I have been actively exercising a lot lately and also been stressing all month about getting my period. My period was due on the 16th april and I still haven't got it. I tried doing the sugar home pregnancy test and that came out to be negative. I'm pretty stressed because the last irregular period I had was in january. Is my period late because of stress/excessive exercise or could I be pregnant?

Hello. Thank you for posting.

If he is sure he did not ejaculate inside you, there is no pregnancy concern. Your period is likely delayed for other reasons.

For future: according to health.com - Besides hCG, the body doesn’t secrete anything in the urine that would give you a clue that you’re pregnant. So if the test doesn’t measure hCG specifically, and no natural method does, it’s not going to prove anything. It's best to buy a drugstore test.
