Call your local Planned Parenthood NOW (they'll be in the phonebook), and get emergency contraception. It's the simplest and most effective thing you can do.

Planned Parenthood of Georgia--phone numbers and locations available
For a little more information about Emergency Contraception, read the following two articles
Emergency Contraception Am I pregnant?
EC is very effective, and the sooner you get it, the better. So make that phone call right away. Good luck!

Please also remember that some STDs and STIs are epidemic in young people right now, and that statistically speaking you are MORE likely to contract or transmit an STD or STI than you are to become pregnant. If you think it can never happen to you, you're terribly mistaken.
So, be sure to also get STD and STI screenings in the next month as well, and in the future, please learn to practice safer sex with your partner.

I have the same problem as you do. I still have about 10 days until my period and I am worried about what will happen. I am completely stressed out and freaking. If you have any advice on how to calm me down or something, let me know. Otherwise, I am here if you need to talk.

zyxzyxzyx, scroll up and follow the advice we gave omgineedhelp. go to the emergency room and get emergency contraception. worrying won't help you now, but get your head on straight for a minute and take care of business. get the emergency cotnraception. and on the way back from the emergency room (because PP and clinics will be closed for Xmas) get condoms and water-based lube. learn how to use them.
Correlation does not equal causation.
