I finished my period on the 26th of February and we had sex on the 29th of February. We used the pull out method because there was no other birth control we could use. Afterwords I had some bleeding but it did not go away for awhile and i kept bleeding until the third and I started cramping a little on the first it was dull until the third and it was horrible. Today (the fourth) all this is gone but I seem to feel wet down there all the time. I started my fertile week on the second. But that is only based off of two months because normally I am not that regular.

If you are not regular you really can't know when you are ovulating or not, especially if you do not track your cervical mucus, temperature and periods for a long period of time.

This does pose a pregnancy risk, withdrawal is 72% effective. Did he pull out long before ejaculation?

Withdrawal is one of the least effective methods to prevent pregnancy - do you want to discuss getting a more reliable method for next time? What do you mean there was no other birth control available?

Unprotected intercourse also poses a high risk for STIs, so both of you will want to get tested.
