Me and my boyfriend had sex the day before I got my period. I'm not not the pill but, We used a condom and he finished. I'm just wondering if I should be worried. I don't think anything went wrong with the condom, so i was also wondering if i should just wait and see if i get my period, which i should within the next week or just go out and get a pregnancy test?

as long as you used the condom correctly (not inside out, rolled down completely, etc) and there were no tears in it and it wasn't too old or anything, then you should be just fine.

Gummy is right, if you used the condom correctly, your pregnancy risk should be low.

However, if you are really worried, a pregnancy test gives a reliable result either on the first day that you miss your period or at lthe earliest 10 to 14 days after an incident during which you might have gotten pregnant.

For best pergnancy and STD rotection, teaming up condoms with another method, such as hormonal birth control (like the pill) or a barrier method (like a diaphragm) is a good choice.
