Could I be pregnant?


Q: I had protected sex on the 31st, with a one night stand. I also forgot to take my birth control pill that day. There would be nothing wrong with that, except that on the 1st the condom that he had apparently forgotten to tell me came off inside me, came out. I started my sugar pills on the 7th, and should have gotten my period on the 9th. It is now nearing the end of the 10th, and still no period. If I haven't gotten my period by the 14th I am going to buy a pregnancy test (I guess the first response since it has the earliest response). So what I am wondering is, will that be long enough from te day of conception for the test to work? And because this would be very abnormal for me, if I do get my period, but it is much lighter or is just spotting, could that still mean I could be pregnant? Also, I'm 18. Thank you for any replies :)
