Hello!

I've been so paranoid lately that i've done so much research on pregnancy symptoms, pregnancy related stuff, etc. I'm so terrified that I can't even sleep well.. and i'm hoping you guys could give me an answer to my problem. ): Back to the topic, my period ended about 6 days before this happened. Anyway, my situation is that me and my boyfriend had "sex" 3 days ago. All he did was put it in me 2 times, and for like what 6 seconds. I asked him if he has ejaculated, or pre-ejaculated at all and he said no I checked beforehand I promise. I've been so cautious and paranoid afterwards. All i've noticed so far in my body is bloating, and a little bit of discharge. I'm wondering if this is from ovulating or?.. I'm so terrified. Please give me an answer to my situation, I'm really hoping I won't end up pregnant I'm so scared.

Hi 143food, welcome to scarleteen!

We would describe what you've told us as a pregnancy risk... that doesn't mean you are pregnant. It just means there is a chance. I can't say if your dicharge of bloatedness has anything to do with pregnancy, it probably doesn't as it is only 6 days since you had sex.

I don't know if your boyfriend fully understands pre-ejaculate, but although it is far less likely to cause pregnancy than ejaculation (some people even use this as their contraceptive method, imperfect as it is) it doesn't really accompany an orgasm or anything that would be noticeable enough for your boyfriend to know if there was pre-ejaculate or not.

It may be advisable to take a pregnancy test, to make sure you're not pregnant and to make sure you have condoms available in future, just in case something like this happens again in future.

You used withdrawal as a method of birth control. You can see how effective that can and can't be right here: Withdrawal. Based on what you said, you used it perfectly.

Per testing for pregnancy, most tests require you wait until you have a missed or late period. If your periods aren't regular to know that, two to three weeks is usually an adequate time to wait until testing for most people.
