I had sex with my boyfriend on September 8, and my period is due september 16. Since it was unprotected and he says he came inside of me, how high are my chances of being pregnant? Am i most fertile then? Should i be really worried about the chances of being pregnant? Please answer this?

Hi Olivexoxo,
Thank you for your question and for finding EmpowHER.
Any time you have unprotected sex you are at risk for getting pregnant. The only way to really know if you are pregnant is a missed period. Try and relax. Stress can do goofy things to your cycle. You may want to call your doctor or clinician to ask what they suggest. They may suggest Plan B (morning after pill). Regardless, you should talk with them about getting on regular birth control if you plan to continue to be intimate. And while you're at the drug store picking up supplies, you may want to grab some condoms also. You can never be too safe if you aren't ready to be pregnant. In this case especially, an ounce of prevention is worth its weight in gold.
Sex should be fun, not stressful. So protect yourself from being in this situation in the future. Here is an article that may help explain some misconceptions you may have:
