I'm not on bc so my periods don't always come exactly the same day but ive never been more than a day or 2 late(in fact if anything i'm usually early) i was kinda stressed so i wasn't really worried when my period was a day late especially since i was having my normal pms symptoms...then me and my bf had unprotected sex twice the next morning(he pulled out before he came both times) but now 3 days after we had sex i still haven't gotten my period and its never been this late...last night and this morning im having mild cramps(nothing as bad as normal) but still no period...

is it possible i could be pregnant? and if i am how soon can i take a test? also if i wanted to take Plan B how long after the unprotected sex can you take it or is it already too late?

It's most effective if you take it within 48 hours. 3 days is really pushing it and it might be too late.

Pulling out isn't a good way to prevent pregnancy. Use condoms every time, and consider getting on birth control. And try to remember that if you're ever in a situation where sperm is inside your body, you need to take Plan B as soon as possible in order for it to work.

I agree with the girls. You period could also be late because you're stressed. it can happen but just to be safe I'd go and buy a pregnancy test.
