If I had unprotected sex and had my period a week later, does that mean I’m not pregnant?

Yes. Getting your period means you’re not pregnant. 

In the future, using a regular form of birth control — like the IUD, pill, or shot —  whenever you have sex is the best way to help prevent pregnancy. And using a condom in addition to another form of birth control every time you have sex gives you extra protection from pregnancy and also protects you and your partner from STDs.
