There is a chance that I might be pregnant..my period isn't late yet but I have this feeling and my boyfriend and I used the pull out method..I know that wasn't a very smart idea. I know I should wait a bit longer and then go and get a test but it has been almost a month now since we had sex and well I was just wondering what are some signs of being pregnant and how soon will they happen?

thanks

We don't advise going by signs and 'feelings' ... Since it's been 10 days since your last risk, you can take a test now. Or you can wait until your period comes (or doesn't).

In the meantime, you need to be looking for a method of birth control that'll work well for you and your partner. Birth control pills, the patch and the nuvaring seem to be popular around here, and many pair hormonal methods w/ condoms, as backup.

Check out Margaret Sanger’s Disneyland: An easy chart of your birth control options for more info on your birth control options.

(Also, not only does unprotected put you at risk for pregnancy, it also puts you at risk for STDs. You and your partner need full STD screens, and need to be using condoms until you have two negative results.

Testing, Testing…)

I have the exact same problem! Wow. Except I know I don't have STDs, and neither does he. But I really need to know some symptoms of pregnancy! Because I am really worried, and my stomach has been feeling weird for these past few days.

How late can you get an abortion?

I wish I could help you with that one but I can't. Where I live you cannot have an abortion and in my opinion that is really wrong that you cannot have it done, so I really know nothing about it. Referring to your other post about signs, here are some signs "Some early symptoms of pregnancy you may experience around the first month include: a missed period, general nausea, a feeling of tiredness, incresed appetite, and/or having to urinate more often, or feeling like you have to."

AnonymousMew, if it's been 10-14 days since your last pregnancy risk, take a pregnancy test. It will be accurate by then.

Megg, I'm confused, I'll admit. You're listed in Canada, and abortions are available in Canada (and in some circumstances, they are even covered by provincial health care). What makes you say abortions aren't available here?

Oh they are available in Canada just not in the province that I live in so if I was to want to get one I would have to travel outside of my province, which is an island to another province and since I do not have a car it is just a hassel..and I am sorry for confusing you and not making myself clear

Ah, I understand now. I did a quick search, and found out that in the Maritimes, many women have hoops to jump through in order to qualify for an abortion. Thank you for clarifying, I appreciate it.
