Hi, Well I read yesterday that the 10th day is when you take the pregnancy test. I also read on another post the her b/f said he never pre-ejaculation either, but is he sure he didn't pre-ejaculate?...You can't control it. There is a mild chance of you being pregnant. Not trying to scare you but you might want to take one today. EversBoo(16)

Unprotected intercourse does NOT create a "mild" pregnancy risk. It carries a high risk, ejaculate or not (just ask my parents). And when men become aroused and erect, they pre-ejaculate -- your partner likely doesn't know it occurs because it doesn't feel like anything, and with his penis inside you, it isn't as if he can see it.
You can take a pregnancy test as early as ten days after the risk. If the result is negative, and your next period is delayed, it's wise to retake the test -- in some people, HcG will not appear in tests as early as the 10th day.
Don't forget too, that about a month from now, you both should start annual STD and STI screenings, as pregnancy isn't your only risk.
Pregnancy tests are inexpensive. I don't know about Oregon but at my local pharmacy in Ontario, prices for a two test kit range from Cdn. $10.00 for a store brand to Cdn. $16.00 for a name brand.

I'm the biggest hypocrite in the world to say this, but wouldnt life be so much better if we all JUST USE CONDOMS??? My unborn son is living proof of what can happen when we dont use condoms. There is a 90% chance that you will become pregnant if you have sex without protection over a 12 month time period. Meaning all the pulling out in the world isnt going to save you in the long run, if you keep up that sort of behavior.

It's not nice to take such a tone with other users, but the question is fair. I'd like to ask you what caused you *not* to use a condom in that instance.
here are some common reasons i've found: 1. inconvenience "oh, we were so in the mood we didn't want to stop just to put one on" 2. trust "i trusted him not to come in me" 3. invincibility "it can't happen to me" 4. feel "he says it doesn't feel as good"
i just wanna get into your heads for a minute and ask those of you whose accidental pregnancies were a result of failure to use a condom what your mindset was at that time. knowing this can help us figure out better ways to encourage condom use.
and if this deserves to be a stand alone thread let me know and i'll gladly restart it somewhere appropriate. if this is an ugly can of fish, i'll erase it
