Doctor :   hi
User :   Hi, i am 16 years old, my girlfriend is 16 years old too. She has irregular periods and her last period was October 4, 2008. We had protected intercourse for no more than five minutes. 98% sure it was only precum. As i mentioned she has irregular periods.But usually she has them the first week of the month. It is ten days into the month, still no period. We took a pregnancy test friday NIGHT (the directions say you can take anytime 99% accurate) and results say negative. Friday night was 13 days after intercourse. Should we be worried about pregnancy?
