Hello Anonymous,

Welcome to EmpowHER and thank you for reaching out to us for advice .
Having daily unprotected sex will increase the chance for pregnancy.
You are expecting your period to start in the next nine days or so, correct?

If you do not have vaginal bleeding that is like your normal menstrual flow within a week of the expected start of your period, test for pregnancy. You could test with an early response pregnancy test, which can be used five days before the expected start of your next period.

A pregnancy test takes the guess work out. Signs of early pregnancy such as fatigue, abdominal cramping, feeling nauseous, and frequent urination are not as reliable as a positive pregnancy test.
