Hi Scareleteen...
I had sex 16 days ago. Since then i have been getting headaches and my lower back hurts and i feel like i am ovlating. When i had sex i was on the pill and used a condom. I was on the second pill of a new pack but i missed one of the white placebo pills the day before, would that effect anything? i am so scared i am pregnanct. I have literally taken 5 home pregnancy tests now and all have come up negative but i think i tested too soon for 2 of them. I took one today on the 15th day after sex and it came out negative, and it was on the ones that says "test 5 days sooner." I have heard that tested 10-14 days after sex will provide accurate results but i am still hesitant... i have read/heard of all of these cases where woman don't know that they are pregnant until months into it and i am driving myself crazy. what are my chances.. help please!!

Hi gymgirl,

Missing a placebo pill would not make a difference. They are usually just there to help you keep your schedule for taking the pill.

That said, if you have been on the pill for at least a full cycle, and you used a condom correctly, there is no pregnancy risk.

You can't rely on pregnancy "symptoms". The only accurate sign of pregnancy is a positive pregnancy test. If you took one 15 days after having sex and it came back negative, it's safe to say you're not pregnant.

So you can take a deep breath and relax.

EDIT: I've just noticed that you posted about this same topic twice before this one and you were told that there was no risk. Please look at the links that Sarah gave you in this thread:;f=28;t=003813;p=1#000000

As was stated in the previous topics by the other volunteers, if you are this worried about being pregnant, you may need to re-evaluate whether or not you are ready for sex.

hi scareleteen, my girlfriend and i are virgins. we really messed around for the first time about two days ago. she licked my penis a little bit. after about 30 minutes after doing nothing i gave her oral. during the oral i kissed her for the first time since she had licked me and i continued to give her oral. idk if i had precummed when she licked me though, so my question is, if i did pre, and she licked it up... 30 minutes later and i kissed her, could it have gone into my mouth, and then into her vagina when i performed more oral on her?were really scared and clueless please help:(
