Im just a lil curious because I usually get my period every 28 days and now I didnt .. and I missed it .. which was yesterday (29th).. I never got it.. Im still hoping that I would get it.. because I had unprotected sex 2 wks ago and I didnt think it would happen to me.. and I dont match any symptom at all .. so ??

If you had unprotected sex, you have a pregnancy risk. Many women don't show "symptoms" during the early stages of their pregnancy, so it's possible that you could be pregnant and just not noticing anything different.

A pregnancy test will be accurate. Take one.

I too normally had a period every 28 days, on the money. However, you can be "late", this is very common, especially in sexually active women. Are you dieting, or have you begun a new exercise program? Both of these can cause late or even absent periods. However, you may not be able to tell whether or not you are pregnant for 2-4 weeks, unfortunately. Certain levels of hCG are required for a positive pregnancy test, so it is very possible that if you take a test before that time, it may read a false-negative.

A reliable brand of a home pregnancy test will test positive after 14days after unprotected sex. If you take a test, and it comes out negative and you don't get your period, test again in a week (you may have miscalculated), or see your doc. A blood test will test positive a lot earlier.

By having unprotected risk, you have put yourself at a high pregnancy and STD risk. You definetely need to see your doc to get a pregnancy test, and to STD screenings. Your sexual health is not something to take lightly my dear. While you are seeing your doc, you should discuss birth control options. Here are some websites for you:

What's your risk?

Best of luck
