Teens Only Ask a Question Parents Resources

  My boyfriend and me have sex almost everyday or every time we see each other and this month I missed my period. Can I be pregnant and how many weeks after you where supposed to get it should you take a pregnancy test.

Dear Vanessa,

If you have engaged in vaginal intercourse without a condom or using some other form of birth control, then there is the possibility of a pregnancy.

For a pregnancy test to be effective, it's best to wait at least two weeks after your missed period to test. We would also suggest scheduling a visit to a clinic for an STI test, just to be on the safe side.
