i was having unprotected sex with my boyfriend and using the pull out method up until april 24th. he broke up with me the next day. it has been 32 days since my last period, but my periods are very irregular. i am concerned because my breasts have recently gotten much larger. a month ago i was a 34B, and now i am a 36C. i am thinking of taking a pregnancy test, but when should i take it?

You can take a pregnancy test 10-14 days after your risk to get an accurate result.

That means you could take the first test in two days to get an accurate result. If it comes up negative, wait a week and take a second test to double check.

And don't forget this has also posed high STI risks, so if you're not up to date on your annual screenings, keep that in mind, too.

It is best to take a pregnancy test with your first morning's urine. Don't forget to read the instructions.
