well my boyfriend and i had unprotected sex but i know that he didn't cum in me but i also know that you could get pregnant from pre-cum (pre-ejaculation)and a week after i had unprotected sex with my boyfriend i got my period ( wasn't just spotting but lighter than normal)and my mind is just telling me that im pregnant and i know that i cant go off that, and i know that having unprotected sex was wrong and it put me in the risk of being pregnant or an STD and i learned my lesson, but i was just wondering could it be possible to be pregnant even though i got my period a week after i had unprotected sex? I was just curious but i am gonna take a pregnancy test.

Some women get light bleeding early in pregnancy, which is occasionally mistaken for a period.

So yes, if your bleeding was lighter than usual, it's a very good idea to take a pregnancy test to make sure you're not pregnant.

And of course you and your boyfriend both need to plan on getting screened for STDs.

well i have this pregnancy test but i haven't taken it yet b/c im confused b/c it says it can detect the pregnancy hormone as early as four days before you expect your period, and i know that people said that you can take a pregnancy 10 days after the incident occurs, and its been more than 10 days its been like more 21 days, so i was wondering if i should take the pregnancy test or wait four days before i expect my period? And i have another question say that i was pregnant,during which month do women mostly show or is it different for different women?

Since it's been 21 days, you can take the pregnancy test right away - you don't have to wait until your next period is due (especially since you've already had one possible period since the unprotected sex).
