Even Teens Know: I am sure that you do not need a physician to tell you that having sex when you are most fertile causes pregnancy. Why would you ask such an obvious question?
Dr. Pavel Conovalciuc

Yes: Very high risk of pregnancy. Do a home pregnancy test and that may help answer your question.

It's early: Yes, you could be pregnant. BUT, if you have a history of irregular periods, this could be an snovulatory cycle, where no egg is produced, or just an irregular length ovulation cycle. If you are 2 weeks past your usual period, it would be a good idea to either take your own urine pregnancy test, or simply stop at your OB's office an have a urine pregnancy test done.
