Do you think there's a possibility of me being pregnant?

I'll try to make this short and sweet.
I'm 17, and on birth control. I finished my pack, and was taking the green pills so that I could get my period. After my period had passed, we couldn't afford to pay for a new pack until 4 days later. So I didn't take the birth control for 4 days. During that 4 days, my boyfriend and I had unprotected sex, and he pulled out. I started taking my birth control last Wednesday, and it's Monday. I've been feeling really weird since we had sex, but I think it may be my anxiety because of the situation. I know for a fact that you can't get pregnancy symptoms days after having sex, but I just got a little worried.

Is it true that right after your period that's your least fertile time?
Is there any way I can know for sure that I'm not pregnant so I can put my anxiety at bay?
Thanks guys.

Well, you risked pregnancy with unprotected sex. No condoms?  Please please at 17, do not have unprotected sex.  That would be so unfortunate if you got pregnant.  I'm glad you are on the pill but try to take it correctly and have condoms as back up.

Your hormones are manipulated which means you can't predict as easily when your fertile time would be.  You didn't have a period, you had a cessation of hormones which caused you to bleed.  But you never ovulated (this is how bc pills work).  I don't know if the extra days triggered you to ovulate.  While I do doubt it, just wait and see.  2.5 weeks after the last unprotected sex, you can take a pregnancy test.  Again, I'm fairly certain it will be negative.  good luck

Unfortunately, the only way to know for sure if you are pregnant is to wait and take a test a few weeks after you had sex.  Sperm can live in your body for up to five days- depending on how your cycle goes- it's possible that you could have been fertile when you had sex, or possibly within that five day window.

I would say it's not likely, but I can't say it's impossible- I'm sure it's hard to not know!  Wait a few weeks and grab a test- keep us updated on how you are doing.
