basically me and my boyfriend had sex 2 or 3 days before my period, and it was unprotected. ive heard that having sex does make your period come late so i thought i'd be okay. so now im a week late. i do get the period 'feelings' sometimes but they recently stopped. ive had sex a couple of times now, and im scared that im pregnant. like i know that there is a small possibility of getting pregnant by precum, but i need honest answers. could i be pregnant?

  • Hi there,

    As you had unprotected sex, yes there is a chance you could be pregnant and yes precum contains sperm – if you want to avoid pregnancy you need to use a reliable method of contraception. As your period is a week late, you should take a pregnancy test. If this is negative but your period does not arrive after a few days you should take another test. If this is again negative you should pop down to your GPs or local sexual health clinic to check there isn’t anything else which might be affecting your cycle.

    I hope this helps.

    Best wishes,
