Hi everyone, Im new to the boards and I hope someone can help me out. Okay on June 1st me and a guy I know had sex, no form of birth control was used. I know that's bad to do, but we did it anyways. So on June 4th I started me period. It was very light and it only last 3 days when it usually last 5-6. So I was wondering what are my chances of being pregnant?

If you had intercourse without any form of birth control, your risk for both pregnancy and STDs is high.

A Quickie STD/STI Risk Assessment

As your period differed from what it was usually like, I'd recommend taking a pregnancy test. They give reliable results either on the first day you miss your period, or ten days to two weeks after the unprotected sex.
So take a test now, and if it comes up negative, make sure you test again to confirm the result in a week.

Also, call your nearby sexual health or Planned Parenthood clinic and get yourself an appointment for an STD screen. While you're there, you can also get reliable birth control and grab some free condoms, too.

Hope this helps.
