Hello Anonymous,

Thank you for your question.

It is possible that you were ovulating when you had unprotected sex. In general, ovulation occurs mid-cycle about 2 weeks before the start of your next period. You are most likely to conceive at this time in your cycle. Considering you have a five day window of fertility and sperm can live in up to 7 days inside a woman's body, there is a chance you became pregnant on one of those days.

If your period for August is more than one week late, take a home pregnancy test.
