Hi Anon,

Thanks for your post! A 3-4 period is normal and nothing to worry about. However, having unprotected sex four times can certainly get you pregnant. There is no way of knowing whether or not you are pregnant until your due period next month. Try not to stress out about it, I advise not to even think about it until your next period comes. If you are a week or more late you can take a home pregnancy test. Always use protection...a condom is probably best at your age considering it is the only birth control method that may also prevent sexually transmitted diseases. Remember that at no point during your cycle is it safe to have unprotected sex.

Good Luck,
