I had sex and I'm afraid. Please help me with a good advice.


Q: I'm a freshmen in highschool. I had sex with my boyfriend and didn't use condoms but he didn't cum inside me. Just to be sure I had the birth control pill right after but haven't had my period yet. It said that the pill would delay the date of when I get my period but it's beyond that. What should i do? Do you think I might be pregnant?


A:   Your anxiety is understandable. Any unprotected sex is a risk. At your age, delayed periods are a strong possibility, that too you having taken emergency birth control pills. How frequent and regular your periods earlier? If still no further periods, get the urine tested to rule out the risk.
