Hello Anonymous,

Welcome to EmpowHER and thank you for coming to us with your concern.

If you girlfriend has a 28 day menstrual cycle, she should ovulate around the 14 day following the end of her period. If you had unprotected intercourse on 8th day of her new cycle, most likely she was not ovulating and there was no risk for pregnancy.

If she is usually regular and her period is late by at least one week, she should take a home pregnancy test.

To avoid this situation again, I urge both of you to use some type of birth control regularly. Together, please take some time to look at the articles featured on the EmpowHER Contraceptive page.
