Hey Im schedualed for Laperscopic surgery on the 17th, and i had a lot of blood work done yesterday for pre-op. Theres a chance i could be pregnant, though i dont think i am. They did a pregnancy test, but i was wondering if anyone knew if they would call me or my mother if it was positive? Im a minor, 16, and i wouldnt want them to tell her before me, ya know? also, i had sex with my ex bf, and i got a period since the last time, and now im back with an ex boyfriend of mine, and i didnt have sex with him, but he came, and then later we fooled around and his penis was very close to my vagina, and went inside, but we decided we didnt want to have sex yet, so i think some of the cum was still on his penis. now i know i should have used a condom even if we werent plannign on having sex, and i know im at risk for HIV or another form of STD/STI, but am i correct when i say that sperm can live outside the body for up to 20 minutes? because if it can, then im at hihg risk for pregnany, and im afraid they wont be able to tell before i go into surgery. it'll only be 8 days the day of my surgery and thats too soon to tell, but if i am pregnant, i dont want the surgery to hurt the baby... im so confused...

Unfortunately, our medical student and our nursing student are on Spring Break. The best advice I can offer is to short circuit the procedure and contact your surgeon's office and tell them that you had a possible pregnancy risk and when it happened.
The may decide that it's not a problem or decide to retest you. In any event, you will be dealing with the surgeon's office directly.
