Protected sex: Depending on how "protected" sex actually is, the chances of pregnancy are variably unlikely. If concerned at all about any missed birth control pills or malfunctioning condoms, etc, check a home pregnancy test. Your girlfriend is far enough past a missed period for it to be positive if she's pregnant.
