can you get pregnant if you have sex at the 3rd day of your period?

my boyfriend and i had sex but he didn't ejaculate inside me. we stopped our sex even before he could cum. he didn't cum at all. my period usually comes after the 30th - 32nd day from my last period.

what's the probability of me getting pregnant?

You can get pregnant at any time of your cycle, it's just more and less likely at different times, depending on your unique fertility cycle. For some women day 3 may be totally safe, while for others, it may not be. Unless you chart your own fertility signals daily, have for at least a few months AND have regular cycles, there's no telling well what days are your own most and least likely.

Knowing how long your periods last and how long your cycles are alone doesn't give us that information.

Withdrawal is anywhere from 73% to an estimated 96% effective, depending on how its used. If you're not comfortable with those levels of effectiveness and it's been less than 5 days since this happened, you could consider using emergency contraception.

What you'll want to do is call a pharmacy in your area and ask if that carry EC (emergency contraception) or Plan B (the morning after pill). They'll know what it is and be able to tell you how much it costs if they do carry it.

As Heather said, unless you chart your fertility, there's no way for us to know that. The only thing we do know is the effectiveness rates of withdrawal, and that there will always be some risk.

If you want to lessen the risk, taking the morning after pill is an option. If it isn't available, there are some brands of combined birth control pills that can be used as well. Depending on where you are, you may need a prescription.
