Hi Anon,

Thanks for sharing your question with EmpowHER's community!

Anytime you have sex and don't use some type of birth control, your chances of pregnancy to go up. If you haven't had your period since late August and are concerned about pregnancy, I recommend taking a pregnancy test. That is really the only way to know for sure if you are pregnant or not.

If you are having sex and don't want to get pregnant, it might be a good idea to talk to your doctor about using birth control. Birth control will help reduce your chances of pregnancy and also help ease worries of getting pregnant. Otherwise, the other way to not get pregnant would be to stop having sex.

This article discusses different types of birth control and how you can find the best option for you: http://www.empowher.com/birth-control/content/choosing-right-birth-contr...

I hope this helps! Let me know if you have any other questions!

Best,
Erin
