I've had unprotected sex - when's best for a pregnancy test?

I had sexual intercourse on the 3rd and 8th of January this year, I am not on any birth control and we didn't use a condom. Yes he ejaculated inside of me.

Is there any chance I could be pregnant and when would it be safe to do a pregnancy test?

Yes you could be pregnant if you had unprotected sex.

It is best to wait until the day of a missed period and then test.

If the test is negative but your period does not come leave it 2-3 days and retest.
