Hi there. If you are having unprotected penis-vagina sex (p-v), you could be pregnant. Home pregnancy kits are usually pretty reliable 10-14 days after having unprotected sex, so this would be your first step. Lots of women have irregular cycles, and there are various contraceptives that can help regulate them. Insist on seeing your doctor so you can find out what's going on. Dr. J
