Hi, I had sex with my bf 12 days ago. three days after I had sex, I got my period (it was 4 days early). It was shorter than it usually is and I'm scared that I might be pregnant. We used a condom and he withdrew but this thought of possible pregnancy is driving me crazy. How soon can I take a home pregnancy test?

If you had a period, you cannot be pregnant. (And if the condom didn't break or slip off, there's no reason to think you had a risk in the first place.)

If you still want to take a test for your peace of mind, it will be accurate now (10-14 days after the risk).

(FYI, condoms are designed to hold ejaculate, so withdrawing isn't necessary. It can actually make it more likely that it'll come off during his haste to pull out in time.)
