Wait a little...: Perhaps a couple more days, then take a new home pregnancy test with a first morning urine specimen for best results. Any time you have unprotected sex you not only risk pregnancy, but also lifelong/life changing std's such as hpv (which causes cervical cancer), and herpes--and many others. It is not worth the risk. The person you think you love now is likly to not be "the one". Condoms are good!

Repeat test: Repeat the test in 4-5 days, unless you get a period by then. Use first morning urine and follow the instructions for the test carefully. If you do not wish to be pregnant, use contraception all the time, every time. You may consider implanted contraceptive, or IUD. Practice safe sex. Get HPV vaccine.
