My period is late.

I am 18 and had unprotected sex with my boyfriend two weeks ago. I don't know if I'm pregnant because I haven't taken a pregnancy test. But, my period is late.

Editor's Comment

If your period is late then I would advise you to take a pregnancy test. If you had unprotected sex there is a chance you could be pregnant, and it is important to do a test so that you can think through your options if you are pregnant.
