Me and my boyfriend had unprotected sex on July 5th an he ejaculated in me & we had unprotected sex again on the 8th and he ejaculated in me again... So he says. My period is due on July 28th but i been under stress so i doubt if i get 1 this month cause i didnt get 1 last month due to stress ( i didnt have no type of sex last month) but how soon can i take a pregnancy test?! And will me being so much stress reduce the risk of me getting pregnant anyways? Plz help me!

Im also starting 2 feel stomach cramps every now & then With NO spotting. I normally have cramps weeks b4 i get my period

Pregnancy tests are accurate 10-14 days since a risk. So, if you want to wait until you can get an accurate result based on the July 8th risk, you'll have to wait until the 18th.

Though since you've already missed one period, I encourage you to go ahead and take a pregnancy test anyways, just to make sure you are not already pregnant.

It sounds like you do not want to become pregnant, correct? Do you want to talk about finding a birth control method that will work for you?

Did you want to talk, then, about finding a method of birth control? Happy to go through that with you.

Here is a great article to help you choose birth control:
Birth Control Bingo!

I also really like this one about backing up one method with a second for ultimate protection:
The Buddy System: Effectiveness Rates for Backing Up Your Birth Control With a Second Method

Also check out Find-a-Doc to help you find a doctor in your area if you are interested in a method that requires a prescription.

If you're still concerned, you can wait until after the date you'd expect this period and then test again (or head to your health care provider for a test and to talk about your birth control options).

Sometimes testing before 2 weeks (or indeed before a missed period) is too soon for people. Best bet is to see if your period comes and if not test when it's missed or get tested at a doctor's office.
