Hello, it's my first time posting, I've read the "pregnancy scare" article but I wanted some extra advice.

About two days ago, during the second day of my period, I had unprotected sex(stupid I know) and he pulled out before he came.

I was wondering what the chance of me getting pregnant would be?

Unprotected genital contact always carries a pregnancy risk, and the fact that you were on your period doesn't mean that you cannot get pregnant.

Sounds like you used withdrawal, and the effectiveness rate of that is about 72-83% effective.

So, it depends on whether or not you are comfortable with that risk. If you're not, you still have some time to obtain EC, which can be effective for up to 120 hours after a risk.

Hmmm alright, thank you.
Is there any reason being on your period doesn't matter?
