I am on birth control but after my last pack ended i had to wait a week before refilling because I forgot to get it refilled. While I was on my period (withdrawal bleed) I had a tampon in and my boyfriend and I were messing around and he came on my back. He quickly cleaned it off. I thought we were ok but but lately I have been feeling a little sick in the mornings. I was wondering if there is any chance that I am pregnant.
PS-This was on either may 21st or 22nd and I started my new pack on 27th.

IN order for pregnancy to even be a possibility, there needs to be direct contact between that ejaculation and a vulva or vagina, or between a bare penis and a vulva (outside of the vagina) or inside the vagina.

Since you took a week off between your pill packs, it's a good idea to use a back up method of birth control for this cycle if you're going to be involved in any sort of sexual activity that could lead to pregnancy.

Take a look at these articles for more on what is and isn't a pregnancy risk.

The thing that keeps bothering me is that I keep getting sick in the mornings (as I did again this morning) and I also read somewhere that thick white discharge is also a pregnancy symptom and i also have that now.

Thanks so much!

Have you engaged in any sexual activity lately that could lead to pregnancy?

If it would ease your mind, you certainly could take a home pregnancy test.

Also, as the pregnancy symptoms article I just linked points out, there are usually many causes besides pregnancy for any physical symptom someone might experience.
