Yes, if . . .: If you engage in unprotected sex, then you run the risk of becoming pregnant. Could you be pregnant now? Yes but only way to be sure is to wait 5 more days until your next period. If you're late, take home pregnancy test (they're very accurate once you've 4wks past your last menses). If you're not late or your test is negative, go see ur FamilyDoc to discuss your contraceptive or fertility options
