Is she pregnant or about to start her period?

I had protected sex on February 12 and used the pull out method with a condom on to be safe. Had a little "fun" on Feb 14th (foreplay, etc.) and she wanted to have sex. She stuck it in her and I pulled out about 3-5 seconds later because I didn't have a condom and didn't feel comfortable having sex without a condom, especially at a young age. She has been repeatedly saying stuff like "I think I'm pregnant." or "What if I am pregnant?" and saying stuff like that.. She was supposed to start her period yesterday (February 22) and hasn't started yet, not even today. She has been either really happy, depressingly sad, or aggressively angry. She's been picking fights with me and having mood swings the past few days. Is she pregnant or is she starting her period soon?

She might want to wait a few more days and take a home pregnancy test. To get a more accurate result, most test should be done after you experience a missed period. It all depends on the brand.

Hi Anon,

Welcome to EmpowHER. If you had unprotected sex at anytime, your chances for pregnancy are higher.  In order to know if she is pregnant, she will need to take a home pregnancy test or see a doctor for blood work.  Stress can cause delays on her ovulation and menstruation. Hope this was helpful?

Do you think it is too soon to take a home pregnancy test?
