About 2 weeks ago, my friend had sex with her boyfriend. She wasn't on birth control, he didn't use a condom... It wasn't safe sex at all. She was supposed to get her period on the 17th of this month, but she said it was just a little blood and that was it. She's extremely worried that she might be pregnant... I know this isn't much info... I'm so worried for her, her parents are awful and I don't know what they would do if she is pregnant. Should she just take a pregnancy test? Please help if you can.

She obviously has had a high pregnancy risk- so, since it's been two weeks, it's too late for EC. She should take a pregnancy test- the results will be accurate by now. (If her period seemed at all like a regular period, then she likely is not pregnant- however, if it was just a bit of light spotting, I'd still take the test.)
