Here's the situation;
The last time I started my period was on July 23 and ended on july 27. Me and my boyfriend had sex on july 29 and during, the condom slipped off but we realized it did. So the worst that could have gotten inside of me was some precum because he didn't ejaculate. We were messing around some hours before that and he ejaculated but he urinated in the time period between that and when we had intercourse. I have a very reglar menstruation cycle, but I am late for it this month(august) by 3 days so far. I reallyyy need to know what kind of risk my situation poses as for pregnancy in terms of what stage I was in, in my cycle and the precum situation. My boyfriend is out of town and will not be able to come back for a couple of months if he doesn't come by this friday and he wants to be here for support in case I am at risk. It would be a great help if I could know whether I hould worry about this too much or not.

*i've beeb wanting to eat a lot lately, my breasts are sore, I've been waking up feeling sick, and I've had some cramping as well lately. (This usually never happens as pre-menstrual symptoms for me)

Hi bellabee,

It sounds like withdrawal was used perfectly in this situation so it presents about a 4% risk of pregnancy. Since your period is late, a pregnancy test would be accurate now and is really the only way to know for sure. Relying on possible symptoms is not always a good idea because they could mean any number of things.

You and your boyfriend have also had STI risks from this situation, so if you are not both up to date on your testing, I'd recommend getting full screenings.

Here are a few articles that may give you a bit more information:

Hope this helps!
