COULD I BE PREGNANT?????? SHOULD I TAKE A TEST NOW OR WAIT TILL MY PERIOD IS DUE TO COME???? IM 21 AND SCARED PLEASE HELP!

Doctor

A:   Thank you for your question. I can understand your concern.  I encounter anxiety regarding irregular cycles in my practice on a regular basis.  The better pregnancy tests on the market can tell you if you are pregnant within 7 days after conception.  If you have had unprotected sex and it has been at least 7 days since sexual intercourse, I suggest taking the test.
If it is negative, you should see you family doctor for further investigations.  If you are experiencing fever or pain, you should see your family doctor sooner.
