hey i am 15 years old and have had unprotected sex, my boyfriend did not ejaculate inside me.(shouldnt of done it i know)

my last period was the 15th of march and i have now started on the 12th of april.

i have started my period it is usual heaviness and its not an unusual colour
i have no signs of pregnancy either, no sore boobs or anything etc

am i just paranoid about being pregnant and all this ''pregnancy bleeding'' ?

and just to add its not just light bleeding it's what i usually have which isnt majorly heavy but its quite heavy?

should i take a pregnancy test to make sure?

Hi,
Welcome to ehealthforum,
If your periods are like your ‘normal’ periods, then you can relax. Wait and watch for your next periods. Look out for development of any other new symptoms suggestive of pregnancy. You can consider getting tests done to rule out pregnancy. Get started on appropriate regular birth control if pregnancy is ruled out and if you intend to remain sexually active.
Take care.
