hi. well. here's my story. this past weekend i was out with friends drinking. and this guy and i were kind of together all night. later on when everyone went to bed him and i cuddled and kissed but i have to admit i dont remember everything. there is a possibility that we has sex .and if we did we didnt use protection. which is realy stupid. cuz i always do... so now im all freaked out can be pregnant. my period is always different so that doesnt help.but sometimes it comes like the last week of the month. so. i dont know what to do. besides never drink again and always use protection.and i cant ask the guy. cuz for one we're not really close friends. it just sort of happened because we were drinking. anyways. please help me..if its possible.thank you

Going on the basis that you did have sex-

How long exactly has it been since the possible risk? If it has not yet passed five days, you could still get Emergency Contraception to help reduce your pregnancy risk greatly.

Otherwise, a pregnancy test will be accurate as early as 10-14 days after a risk, so you will have to wait until then to test.

You're also going to want to schedule a full STI screenings about one month from now, and a second screening 6 months after that.

I understand that you are not close friends with this guy, but HE was part of the decision (whether or not he was drunk) to have sex with if you did, and if it's the difference between knowing for certain if you had pregnancy and STI risks and not, why not ask?

If you could get Emergency Contraception today it would not be too late, and even if you're not certain you've had sex, if there was a reasonable possibility you did, it would be better to be safe if you can get it. (Taking EC if you hadn't had a pregnancy risk isn't going to harm you in any way)
