I don’t know when I get my period because birth control is supposed to be reducing the amount of periods I have every year. My boyfriend finished in me when he was drunk without telling me and now how will I know when to take a pregnancy test?

Depending on what method of birth control you’re using and how correctly you’ve been using it, you may have very little reason to worry about pregnancy. But if you’d like to be totally sure, wait a few weeks to see if you get your period, and if you don’t, you can take a pregnancy test. Usually it takes at least 2-3 weeks after sex for pregnancy to show up on a test.
