My boyfriend and I had sex this last weekend and didn't use a condom. He pulled out but is there still a chance i could become pregnant? and how big of a chance is it? Thanks!

'Pulling out' (or withdrawal) is not a method of birth control, mainly because it's so ineffective. You're pretty much just flipping a coin (with regards to whether or not you'll get pregnant) every time you have unprotected intercourse.

According to What's The Risk? - Five Easy Pregnancy Risk Assessment Flow Charts;

Did you have unprotected penis-in-vagina intercourse (no condom, no other birth control of any kind), but WITHOUT ejaculation into or onto the vagina or vaginal area?

If you DID have unprotected penis-in-vagina intercourse but the man DID NOT ejaculate, then you have a MODERATE to HIGH risk of pregnancy. See your health care provider as soon as possible for a pregnancy test/Morning After Pill and an STD screening.

If you don't wish to be pregnant, the morning after pill can be taken up to 120hrs after a risk, but it's more effective the sooner it's taken.

If it's too late for MAP (and even if it's not), you can take a pregnancy test 10 days after the risk. If that comes up negative and you still don't have your period, you can take another one a week or so later.

Also, you and your partner need to sit down and discuss your birth control options (that is assuming you're not trying to get pregnant). Now would also be ideal to get STD/STI screens if you haven't already.

Wait until you are married and have unprotected sex as often as you like with a man who has promised to love you and cherish you until the day he dies. Don't sell yourself short!!!! Real men protect the pruity and inocence of the women in their lives. They never use them for physical pleasure! They put them up on pedestals and treat them like princesses. These are the type of men that make us women beam with pride and fall in love all over again every time we set eyes on them. Hold out for your gentleman!!! He's out there and he's priceless and worth waiting for!

In case you haven't noticed, this site is deticated to providing real life sex ed. While it is fine to have your opinions on "the right time to have sex", infiltrating the boards with them is NOT a good idea. This is the third post I have read from you about how "respecting yourself" is waiting until marriage. Frankly, the Scarleteen boards are certainly NOT the place to post this sort of opinion, and I am kindly going to ask that you please stop doing so.

Rosie, if that is the choice you've made for yourself, then good for you. But that does NOT mean it is the right choice for everyone else, and ST is not a place for you to preach your particular, personal viewpoint on non-married sex.

And please do NOT make statements about what "real men" do or what all women want. You can speak for yourself, but you can't speak for everyone else. Leave some room for people who are different than you, OK?

Hope this helps,
