Period won't come unless forced.

My last period started August 1st. I have regular 30-day cycles, so I expected to have my next one by Friday, August 30th. I am now 3 days delayed which is very very unusual. My boyfriend and I had unprotected sex 5 days after my ovulation date, which I monitor. My cervical mucus had become extremely creamy and that's how we knew we could do it without protection. My calendar had also told me it was a safe day. Now there is no period, which got me worrying. I do bleed however, after masturbation. And I'm quite sure it doesn't come from a wound. It smells and looks like bright red period blood with clots. However once I end masturbating, the flow stops as well. I was afraid I might be pregnant due to the absence of my menstruation but now it seems like an entirely different thing. Help?

Two things.
1) The rhythm method is notoriously bad in terms of efficacy, even for women with regular cycles. I highly recommend something else. If you don't want the pill, some sort of barrier method might work for you. Plus I would recommend a condom no matter what - regardless of all promises of fidelity. This is your personal safety we're talking about. Plus it will help with your peace of mind in terms of preventing pregnancy.
2) If it concerns you, you can buy a home pregnancy test, follow the instructions and take it if you do not get your period. You're probably find but this might be useful for your own peace of mind.

And, yes, peace of mind - it might be a good time to reevaluate how using the rhythm method is likely stressing you.

A third thing, actually - contact your doctor. Ask about what you've asked about here, and talk about pregnancy and disease prevention. Believe me, your doctor has heard it all before. It is his/her job to advise you, and help you in this area. You are probably not pregnant but you might want to get it from an authority just what the odds are, depending on the methods you choose.
