Am I Pregnant?

Well, my boyfriend and I have had protected sex 4 or 5 times since my last period. I have irregular periods anyway, but this is the first time that I have been a week late. We have always used condoms and he has pulled out before ejaculating every time we did it. We also checked the condom for leaks or tears after he got off in which have been perfectly fine. I took a HPT Saturday and it came out negative. I don’t have any of the early signs of pregnancy symptoms except for some cramps that I think is associated with my period. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

It can be normal to be a tad later then 'usual' on occasion- especially if you have irregular periods.  Even something like stress can cause a period to be late.  If you used condoms, it's unlikely that you are pregnant- of course they are not 100% effective, but it's not likely that you are expecting- especially since you have taken a test since being late and gotten a negative result.  You can always wait a week and test again, just to put your mind at ease though.

Even if he pulled out BEFORE ejaculating? The only thing that possibly got inside of me was pre and it was caught by a condom. He has never “got off” inside of me.
Pulling out is not an effective method at all- but again, because you used a condom, you are likely fine.  Anytime you have vaginal sex, you run the risk of pregnancy- even on birth control or with a condom.  The risk is significantly less with those precautions, but it isn't completely removed.  I would be very surprised if you are expecting, but it's important to understand there is a slim chance.  The negative HPT on Saturday is pretty conclusive- but again, if you are still worried and late in a week, you can take another test to be more certain.
