Me and my boyfriend had our first sexual encounter together the 8th of june. We were unprotected becuz it wasnt planned but times afterward we were protected. But now im unusually a week late for my period. My breast have been EXTREMELY sore alot more than they are before my period. Also I can tell when I ovulate cause there is ALWAYS a clear discharge a short time after previous periods and I also skipped my usual cramps. I dont take this as an actual pregnancy sign. But what should I do? I am going to try to purchase a pregnancy test tomorrow. Is there anything else I should do? thanks

All you can do at this point is take a pregnancy test. If it is negative, wait another week and if your period is still late, take another to be certain. If it is positive, you need to get medical attention as soon as possible to evaluate your prenatal options. Other than that, there's nothing you can do at this point.
And while you're buying your pregnancy tests, be sure to stock up on some condoms and lube, too.
