Yeah I know i wasn't really ready, but it's happened and I've made a mistake, that I will not make again, until im ready. But I'm really nervous that i may be pregnant, how do I know I'm not without taking a test? Or isn't there a way?
There are no reliable signs of pregnancy other than a positive test, missed periods, or giving birth. A test can be taken with reliable results at least 10 days after a pregnancy risk has occured.
As I said in the other post, if you correctly used the condom and it did not fail, there is a low chance that you would be pregnant (we cannot say that there is NO risk, because only abstainance is 100% safe). Your risk here is minimal though.
Pregnancy tests can be purchased at most drug stores, supermarkets, and chain retailers. They usually cost between $9-$18 dollars, depending on which brand you choose and how many tests are in each of the boxes.
