I can say one thing: You either need to be prepared to become pregnant or you need much better sexual safety behavior. That said, it can be one of the things you bring up at an OBGYN exam to discover the cause of your unusual cycle. Please take yourself more seriously. It is a matter of health and adult responsibility. Best!
