I have been getting alot of headaches and pms symptoms early (I am on the birth control pill and my period will arrive on Saturday the 9th of July). Today I noticed that I have a tender spot on my stomach. I told my mother (who is a RN) and she said it could be alot of things. One of them being an egg is releasing from your ovary and the second...ectopic pregnancy. I was already concerned about pregnancy before this happened. The only reason I am concerned is that my boyfriend would ejaculate and hes cleans himself off with a tissue. I am worried that some of his sperm missed being cleaned off and stayed on his finger which he proceeded to finger me with. This happened multiple times. There was another time when we rubbed genitals but I made him wash off before hand. I would just really like to know if I actually have a risk here or am I just making a mountain out of a mo-hill, Thank you so much!

The pill is incredibly effective at preventing pregnancy when taken properly, and to boot, it doesn't sound like you've had a significant pregnancy risk in the first place. A tender spot on your stomach could be due all sorts of things, but I don't see a reason to be concerned about pregnancy (though if the soreness continues, checking in with a doctor would be a good move).

The only reason I am worried at all is because I am terrible at taking the weekend pils on time. The weekday pills are fine because I have to get up and go to school, but on the weekends I end up sleeping late. Does this greater my risk?

I'm sorry for bothering you again, but I noticed that my discharge has been very thick and white late. I read that that means you are on the infertile part of your cycle...could that mean being pregnant?

How late do you take your weekend pills? You want to aim to stay within a 3 hour window, but a pill is not actually considered late until it has been more than 12 hours. So as long as you don't sleep through the whole day, you're still fine. [Smile]

Do you chart your cervical mucus? Unless you've been doing that for a while, it's pretty difficult to say anything meaningful about this, because there's just nothing to compare it to.

But as Karybu said, there's really no reason to worry about pregnancy here in the first place.
