Should I wait from my next period to be sure?

I had sex three days ago and I got my period. Does that mean I'm not pregnant or should I just wait for my next period to come?

Hi tgangie

Thanks for your post!

A period three days after sex means you are not pregnant and will not get pregnant from having sex three days before. You don't have to wait for another period to confirm this. Make sure you never have unprotected sex between days 8 and 18 of your cycle - these are generally your fertile days.
