My period is three days late now. I've never been one to have really late periods.
I haven't had bad breakouts like i usually do right before my period nor have I been easily upset and expiriencing other PMS symptoms.

I've had unprotected sex a few times in the past month. What are the chances that I am pregnant and when should I take a pregnancy test that will give me a correct answer?

Unprotected sex poses a high risk of pregnancy. Since your period is late now, you can go ahead and test - if you get a negative and your period still doesn't show up, wait another week or so and test again.

You've also had STI risks, so you'll want to get on top of your testing if you're not up to date with that.
