I am slightly confused.

My last period started on July 25th & I was due to start again on August 28th.
My boyfriend and I had unprotected sex on August 24th.

The chance of me being pregnant aren't that big are they? Because I shouldn't have been ovulating right then.

I haven't started yet.
I need to know if I should test and if so, when would I be able to...

Thank you <3

You have had a high pregnancy risk. This happened 11 days ago, right? If so, you can take a pregnancy test now. It's adviseable to buy a twin pack so that you can retest a week later to confirm the results.

I was actually considering going to the local health clinic to get tested... So I could go this week and they could tell? Do blood pregnancy tests have better results that urine tests? Which should I ask for?

It would be easier on you to simply take a home pregnancy test. Urine tests are around 97% accurate if used correctly 10-14 days after your risk.

Take a test at home. If it turns out positive, go to the clinic to confirm the results. If it turns out negative, test again in a week.
