all righty. here's my dilemma.
about a week ago, my boyfriend and i kind of went on a "sex test - drive". we didn't use a condom :-\ sorry - eek! he only put his penis in about 2 inches (then we stopped because it hurt me too much). before he put it in, we felt it and it was dry. however, i'm still worried about precum because i may have been ovulating at that time, but i'm not sure. this week i have had breast tenderness, which i usually get before my period. what are the chances of my being pregnant? thanks a bunch.

It's time to use a home pregnancy test--your risk of pregnancy is very high. Penises produce pre-ejaculate when they're erect, and you can get pregnant *any* time during your cycle.

Buy a home pregnancy test, and you should be able to test for results soon, perhaps even tommorrow. Also, you both have an STD risk and should get tested--STDs are not something to be taken lightly, and STDs are incredibly prevalent among teens.

There's no reason to put yourself at risk, gal. Just taking a minute to stop and put on a condom could save you from an unexpected pregnancy or an STD such as herpes, HPV, AIDS, chlamydia, and, well, a lot more. There's no reason not to keep yourself safe.

Thank you SO much for your help. my boyfriend will be buying me a home pregnancy test tomorrow. In the unfortunate event that my test comes out positive, and i need an abortion...
what exactly do clinics do for you when you ask for an abortion? do they give you pills or what? thanks again

Just make sure you're not taking that test too soon, or your results will be meaningless.

You need to wait at LEAST 10-14 days after the incident before you test, and preferably, the day of your next missed or late period.

To answer your other question, some clinics do have mifepristone (AKA, the abortion pill) available, but many do not, so you're generally talking about surgical abortion. Both the pill and surgical abortion are not what you'd call quick and easy, by any means, though they are safe and effective and doable if that is what you want. They are also both costly.

You can find out about abortion at the main site, or by using the search function, which will pull up answers like the following for you: http://www.scarleteen.com/forum/Forum27/HTML/002330.html
