Answer to Am I Pregnant:
Hi Sophie,

It is hard to know if you are pregnant without a little more information. It is a bit early for you to be experiencing symptoms. Have you done a pregnancy test? To do so, you want to purchase a pregnancy test from your local pharmacy. Then, first thing in the morning pee into a cup and submerge the tip of the pregnancy test into your urine for the number of seconds recommended by the particular pregnancy test you purchased. The instructions will tell you. Doing it this way is more accurate than peeing on the pregnancy test.

At 24 years old, you are at a very fertile age. Sperm can live in your uterus and vagina for up to 5 days after intercourse. Do you remember when your last period was? Was it right before you had unprotected sex or was it a week or two before. Generally women are most fertile from days 12-14 of their cycle, assuming their cycle is 28 days long. Since it has been 4 weeks without a period, it is likely you are pregnant unless you had your period right before or during the time when you had sex.

If you don't have a period in the next week or so, it is very likely you are pregnant assuming you have a regular cycle. If it turns out you are pregnant, we suggest you speak to an older woman that you can trust to figure out what the best thing to do is in your situation. Hopefully, this will be your mother, but if you don't have that kind of relationship, please find someone else that you trust that can help you figure out what to do.
Please let us know how things turn out!

Our best,

from the Team.
