i had some time of spotting/bleeding that i noticed happneded once about a week ago. it was about 10 days after intercourse so i got worried it might be implantation bleeding. i used a condom and im on the pill (haven't missed any)..i took a test 3 days after that so 13 days after intercourse (5 days before period) it was negative

today i was supposed to get my period but i havent, should i take a test again? it was one of those first response 6 days before your missed period tests.

You can take another test if it would make you feel better, but it doesn't sound like you have a pregnancy risk to worry about.

Using the pill and condoms together and correctly is as safe as it gets in terms of protection, and you've already had a negative pregnancy test.

It is generally recommended to take a pregnancy test at around two weeks after a risk, or on the first day of a missed period. You waited 13 days, so that means that you were pretty close to the recommended amount of time.

Given that you used protection and have had a negative pregnancy test, there is no reason to still worry about pregnancy.

But, again: if it makes you feel safer, you can just take another test.
