What is the likelyhood i could be pregnant from this scenario...
I had sex the first day off my period...we used a condom and combined that with withdrawal. (also through out the month we fooled around a few times but w/o sex and there was always a condom on.) I'm now fifteen days late. I took a pregnancy test on my 6th day late and it was neg and then took another on my twelfth day late it was also neg. TH epast few days i've noticed nipples are starting to hurt and stick out a little bit more than usual. The past few months my period as been whacked out a bit and i have been as much as 17 days late so... what's the chance i'm pregnant now????
Your chances of pregnancy are low, considering you used a condom. However, using withdrawal with condoms is not helpful; this increases the chance of the condoms slipping or tearing.

Calm down - your chances of pregnancy are pretty darn low, and since you've had two negative pregnancy tests now, it's pretty safe to say you're not pregnant.
(However, if you're that worried, it might be worthwhile looking into a backup method of birth control for the future, simply for the peace of mind, or even consider if you're really ready to be sexually active at all right now.)

Thank you. sorry i need to hear it from other people so i feel a bit better because i know how to get myself worked up about things sometimes. I know how to really freak myself out sometimes. But thank you. But if anyone else thinks otherwise or has any other opinions or w/e... please feel free to keep posting i'm still a bit stressed out from it being so late.

One more thing to keep in mind is that stress can delay a period (even cause you to miss one completely), so if you've been stressing about this for awhile, the anxiety could definitely be a part of the problem.

Just wonder, why does it increase the chances of slipping or tearing if the guy did not cum?
What she was saying was that quickly withdrawaing can result in condom failures, as it's not atypical, when in a hurry to withdraw, with all the brain-fart of orgasm, for men to forget to hold unto the base when withdrawawing, which often results in the condom slipping off.
