Today is January 19th, and I am 15 years old. 8 days ago, on January 11th, I lost my virginity to my boyfriend, we had unprotected sexual intercourse. I realize we shouldn't have, but there isn't much I can do about it now. He didn't pull out in time, so some of his cum went into me, some went on the floor. The next day, January 12th, I got my period. I didn't take any emergency contraceptives. My period lasted for five days, and that was that. I know that one of the warning signs of pregnancy is a missed period, but since mine came the day after I had unprotected sex, does that apply? I'm wondering, considering the circumstances, if I should be worried about whether or not I am pregnant. Also, if the risks are high, how soon will I be able to take an at home pregnancy test and get accurate (as accurate as possible) results? So far, it's only been eight days. Anything you could tell me would be greatly appreciated, thank you.
