I had unprotected sex last night and although my partner did not ejaculate inside of me, I understand that pre-ejaculate does often contain sperm. Our sexual encounter was not quick and so I'm more than a bit concerned (as I'm assuming the longer the penis is in the vagina, the more pre-ejaculate it would produce. Is that a correct assumption?).

I've been off the pill for a good year at least, my period is due around the 22nd, and I know that the only true way to know when it happens, is to take a test. I also know that it would be possible for pregnancy to come from this sort of situation, but I'm not sure how to know whether or not this type of encounter would be a high risk situation?

(And I've already made an appointment to get checked for all STD's. I realize the seriousness of what we did last night.) Thank you in advance for any help.

You have most definitely had a significant pregnancy risk in this situation, as well as an STI risk (good on you for making that appointment to get tested). Emergency contraception would be a good idea if you don't wish to become pregnant, and it's effective up to 120 hours after the risk, although the sooner it's taken, the more effective it is.

A couple of things to check out:
What's the Risk? Easy Pregnancy Risk Assessment
Emergency Contraception

I have one more question. I've heard a lot about implantation bleeding. And I understand that it generally happens 7-10 days after the risk, if you are to become pregnant. But, I havne't heard anyone ask, do all women experience this? Or is it just one of those 'some do, some don't' things?

Yes, i believe this is one of those 'some do, some dont' things. Some women have it but it is so slight that they don't even notice.
