This may be kind of long and detailed.. But, about a a week and a half ago my girlfriend and I engaged in unprotected sex, it lasted less than 5 minutes. I know of the "pre-cum" risk, so i went to the bathroom before we started to have sex. I pulled out way before I would normallly even orgasm and did not ejaculate inside her, or outside her afterwards at all. Is there any real risk of pregnancy? I know you'll probably say "yes there always is, just 1 sperm will impregnate someone" but I just need an honest opinion, is there really any likelihood of pregnancy?

Yes, this is considered a viable pregnancy risk.

quote:
If you DID have unprotected penis-in-vagina intercourse but the man DID NOT ejaculate, then you have a LOW TO MODERATE risk of pregnancy.
Whether your risk was/is low or moderate will depend on your own fertility cycle. If you chart your fertility and know this to have happened during a time when you were not likely to be fertile, the risk will be lower. If you do not chart your fertility, but the risk occurred during the second half of your cycle, it is probably lower.

If it has been less than 120 hours since your risk, you may obtain emergency contraception. If it has been greater than 10 days since your risk, see your health care provider as soon as possible for a pregnancy test and an STI screening.

It's not possible to know, for certain, that there is no sperm present in your pre-ejaculate, although urinating beforehand does help. As well, it isn't possible for us to be able to tell you exactly what the likelihood is of pregnancy, other than that it's a low - moderate one. If it has been 10 days (or if she has missed a period) then a pregnancy test is in order.

As to my knowledge she has not actually missed her period yet. But still hasn't gotten it.. which is my worry. I may just be worrying too much though. If that's possible.

I'm freaking out... why hasn't she gotten her period yet? Her friend who normally has hers the same time, got hers last week. My girlfriend isn't worried really, she thinks it hasnt come yet due to the fact that she just recently started having practices for lacrosse and runs a lot and is doing a lot more physical activity than normal. Would that be a factor in it not coming yet?

An increased level of physical activity can definitely delay a period. But there was a pregnancy risk here, so it would be wise for your girlfriend to take a pregnancy test - testing won't make her pregnant, and it's definitely worth the peace of mind. (A test will be accurate as soon as 10 days after the risk.)
