I'm almost freaking out. Perhaps i shouldn't. My mom just informed me that tomorrow i'm not going to school because i need to take a blood exam for my new VISA. My period is supposed to come around the 10th this month, I'm having white discharge as i usually do before getting my period, however. I'm afraid to be pregnant without knowing and then finding out through the test with my mom next to me!! argg HELP!!
Here is the think and please be honest so then I know what are my chances:
I had sex 3 times last month and once at the beginning of this.
1- unprotected but took EC (I only took one and forgot to take the other one 12 hrs later. No ejaculation inside of me.)
2-About three days later, had unprotected sex again, same situation but this time I took both pills together. The lady there said it was oK. (No ejaculation inside of me).
3-Penetration for about a minute or less than that, then we used a condom. It didn't brake or anything. He got out and ejaculated outside of me even though he had a condom on.
4-Was the safest sex ever. Used a condom before penetration, did not broke. Didn't take EC. I'm not on birth control pills either.

Knowing the above. What's my risk of pregnancy??
Does the blood exam i'm taking for my VISA can tell this things? Can it also tell if i've being taking EC?? I'm freaking out...so i'm taking a pregnancy test today, i'm not late or anything. I just want to calm down.

If it hasn't been more than 10 days since your last risk, the pregnancy test won't help you much there.

You did have a small risk in the first two situations, though since you took EC you decreased the risk.

I am not sure what a blood test for a VISA tests for and I sincerely doubt they would check for pregnancy, but even if they did, the results would hardly show up instantly. With things like these, blood samples get sent to labs and you get the results at a later date.

(Gotta tell you, though, EC is not something you should use as a regular method of contraception. And when you use a condom, there is no need to pull out. Condoms are designed to contain ejaculate.)

ETA: They test for HIV and other sexually transmitted diseases.

It means that I edited the post to add this extra information. When I first posted I didn't know what would be tested for, so I looked it up for you.

OH Ok then. Thank you so much. My dad is getting the results today in a couple of hrs. I'm trying to stay positive! =S but i'm still nervous...
Anyways, if VISA exams (blood test) only test for HIV or STD then I should be fine.
