My boyfriend and I just had sex, we were both virgins, and he only brought one condom. About an hour after we used the condom we had sex again with out a condom and he pulled out after a minute at the most. This was yesterday, 14 days after my period. I'm slightly worried about the risk of pregnancy because of the previous ejaculation and the place I am in my ovulation cycle. Should I be worried? Should I take Plan B or am I fine? [Confused]

Unprotected sex always presents risks both for pregnancy and for STIs. If he did not ejaculate, the pregnancy risk is slightly smaller, but still there.

Since this only just happened, you still have ample time to get EC. It's effective for up to 120 hours after the risk.

If you and your partner aren't up to date on your STI tests, you'll want to schedule appointments for that, too.

For the future, if you do not want to become pregnant, you'll really need to use protection more consistently.

My boyfriend and I had unprotected sex, and he didn't pull out. I'm not fertile, but are my chances of getting pregnant still incredibly high? I'm scared because it was my first time having sex...

What do you mean by "I'm not fertile"?

With unprotected sex with ejaculation, it's always best to assume that you have had a high risk of pregnancy, and to act accordingly. So, if you do not wish to become pregnant, you will want to consider obtaining EC. That can be effective for up to 120 hours after the risk. If it's already too late for that, all you can do is wait until you can take a test, at 10-14 days after the risk.

Unprotected genital contact also poses a high risk for STI transmission, so if you two aren't up to date with your testing, you'll want to take care of that.

If you're just getting started with having sex, is there any way we can help you find out what methods of protection will work for you?
