Hi Anon - You can get pregnant anytime you have unprotected sex. If you are stressed and worried over having unprotected sex that could be impacting your cycle's schedule. Pregnancy tests detect whether your blood or urine has a hormone called human chorionic gonadotropin (hCG) which is produced after a fertilized egg attaches to the wall of the uterus. This usually happens about six days after fertilization. You can take a test now, or wait a few days to see if your period comes and then take the test. Hope this helps.
