Hi Im 23 and stopped taking the pill about 5 months ago. Since then I have only had my period once. I had sex with my boyfriend last week and the condom broke. Im really worried that I could be pregnant and I don't know when I can check to see if I am. I might not get my period again for another couple of months! can I do a pregnancy test now? or do i have to wait? Please help i don't want to be pregnant!

They say pregnancy tests can be reliable as soon as 10 days after conception so a couple of weeks after you had sex might be worth trying. In some cases you get a false negative, if it is too early and hcg levels aren't high enough so if you still worry after one negative and get no period or have other symptoms, repeat the test in one week.
