Hi guys.

Im sure im just being paranoid, but I want to ask just incase...

Me and my boyfriend had sex yesterday afternoon and he thinks he may have came in me slightly as when he pulled out there wasn't alot of 'come' He wasn't 100% on that though.

I am on dianette the contraceptive and take them at pretty much the same time every moring (Varies some days, but no more than an hour)

Anyway, this morning I felt a little ill and my tummy been feeling odd all day O_o I've been to the loo about four times from 7-12 which is odd for me and I was poop'ing rather than pee'ing.

My period isn't due for about another 15 days however but this is really worrying me O_o

How early can I take a pregnancy test? What are the chances of me actually being pregnant?

Any help/advice would be appreciated.

EDIT: Just to add to this. Both of us are clean for STD's. I've been having blood tests every month for the last three months for a virus i had so if I had anything it woulda shown up. Also did a Clymdia test a while back too.

The chances of you being pregnant now from intercourse yesterday are absolutely nil: pregnancy takes around a week to occur, when it does. It can't happen in one day.

So, whatever you're feeling is something you can be certain isn't from a pregnancy that resulted from intercourse yesterday. It sounds more likely you've got some kind of a stomach bug.

But if and when you want to take a test, to take one when you will get accurate results, you'll need to wait until your withdrawal bleed is late or missed or it has been at least two weeks since intercourse, whichever comes first.

Thanks. I think it's paranoia causing the tummy upset. I think to put my mind at rest, it will be a test. My periods arn't the most reliable. So, the test will probably be the best bet. Thanks for the advice.

Stress and worry about potential pregnancy can certainly cause stomach upset.

If using the pill with withdrawal has you feeling worried, have you talked with your partner about using a more reliable second method instead, like condoms? Or even just about using withdrawal properly, which includes always withdrawing WELL before ejaculation, not right before or at the time?

Neither of us particularly like condoms so thats why we don't use those. I think the other day, as we hadn't done it for a while he left it a tad too late. I know thats very irresponsible of us. And this has taught us both a lesson in that respect.

Im goign to do a test in a couple of weeks time.

Is there a chance do you think? We're only about 5% he came inside me and im on the pill so that reduces the risk. But yes... I guess we'll have to see.

Since you are using your pills properly, the risk is most likely very low. The pill is over 99% effective in perfect use, and 92% effective in typical use, so figure that the lowest level of protection you have in a year is likely that 92%.

And always happy to talk with you about how to use condoms so they feel good if you want a backup method more foolproof than withdrawal.

Thanks. Just seeing someone saying that has helped. I bought a test to do, so going to do that when the time comes.

Ok. Last time we tried with condoms though it felt very uncomfortable for me and my boyfriend is somewhat larger than most guys so he finds them a little uncomfortable too.

Per your boyfriend, has he tried different sizes of condoms as well? There's a ton of different condom types, and sizes vary within them. As well, sometimes different brands using the same size you'll find one kind is more comfortable.

Another part of comfort with condoms comes in using a good water-based lubricant. A couple of drops inside the condom can help make sex with condoms feel better for him, and using some on the outside makes using condoms feel better for you.
