  • oh and you generally wait until AFTER you've missed a period.if you havent missed it...then dont stress because that will delay your period even longer.so.just live as if you were pregnant until you find out.but YES anytime you have unprotected sex theres A CHANCE u could become pregnant.

  • True, you could be. It takes a week for your body to even know its pregnant. Wait a week or two to take your test. Once your body knows it is pregnant your hormone levels will go up very fast so if it isn't positive the first time wait a few days and try again.

  • there's always a chance of conception if you are having sex...protected or not...there is not a single form of BC that is 100% effective.

    There is a 20% chance a healthy couple will conceive during a given cycle.

    It's best to test when your period is late.
