Yesterday I think I had sex with my boyfriend. Even though he didn't ejaculate I'm still worried that I might be pregnant because I keep paying odd senarios in my head such as "What if he pre ejaculated and that got into my vulva?" I'm extremely nervous and wooried and I have no one to talk to. I want to take EC, but I'm only 17 and I can't legally buy it. I am terrified. The only reason I even decide to have sex with my boyfriend was because 3 weeks ago a man try to rape me and since then I've been afraid that my first time would be forced, violent, unwanted, tramatizing...completely unspecial. I really don't know if I'm paranoid or if I could be pregnant. I suppose I just need to tell someone. Actually I feel better writing this.

Oh, sugar. Big hugs.

Okay. You have reasons to be concerned about pregnany and STI transmission: this is always a reasonable concern with unprotected intercourse, if this is what occurred.

So, if this was the case, then yes, I would suggest EC. You can either call your regular doctor for a prescription, go into an urgent care, or call into Planned Parenthood to get it. Even if you had an over-18 friend, while the law has been passed to make it legal for over-the-counter for legal adults, it is not yet actually available that way at this time.

Obviously, too, since you'll ALWAYS want sex for you to be special and wanted and healthy and happy, might I suggest a talk with your partner about making sure you're being safe and responsible with any sex you have? Because doing it this way isn't going to be a good, comforting thing for you: to feel good about it, you'll also want to be doing what you can so as not to deal with unwanted pregnancy or STIs.

Not a problem.

As well, if you decide you want some support from the trauma of the attempted rape, please feel free to ask/post. We're glad to do what we can to provide what you need/want in that regard, too.
