Could I be pregnant?

I had unprocted sex with my boyfriend a week ago and I was supposed to start my period 6 days ago, so we had sex a few days before I was supposed to start my period. He said he might have came in me, Ive had pregnancy scares before and he was never worried but now he's worried and im less worried because I don't want to stress about it. My boobs hurt really bad too, but that could be because I'm PMSing. What do you think?

Hello, and thank you for sharing your question with the community.  I'd love to offer some input on the matter. 

I want to be sure that I'm getting the timing correct however.  Your period is 6 days late and you had sex prior to the 4th and not during these last 6 days correct?

If this is the case, I think you should be aware that a missed or irregular period following unprotected intercourse is one of the top symptoms of pregnancy.  

The best way to be certain whether you conceived or not is to take a pregnancy test following a missed or irregular period.  Timing it this way gives your body time to develop enough hCG hormone to be detected by a pregnancy test.

Good luck, and let us know if you have any more questions.
