So yesterday I had unprotected sex with my boyfriend for the very first time . I think i should add that i was a virgin up until that point . He bareley got in because I was so tight and he didnt even ejaculate, but i am still worried on pregnancy and STD's ? what should I do ?

Well having been a virgin up until that point has no influence on whether or not the sex you had posed a pregnancy risk. Have you had a chance to read this (Afraid you might be Pregnant? Read this first) yet? That will explain your risk. But yes, if you had intercourse, there is a risk of pregnancy. Since there was no ejaculation, the risk is the same as using the withdrawal method. The withdrawal method is 96% effective with perfect use, and 73 to 82 % effective with typical use.
If you're not comfortable with that risk, you have the option of taking the morning after pill.

It's still less than 120 hours (five days) since the risk. Emergency contraception can be used to reduce the risk of pregnancy by 75-95%. The sooner it's used, the more effective it is, so it's best to take it as soon as possible. You can get emergency contraception from a healthcare provider, pharmacy, emergency room or health clinic. Depending on your age and location, you may need a prescription, but those over 17 in most countries can purchase it over-the-counter from a pharmacist. To find EC near you, click here.
As Moonlight covered, it sounds like a low risk you had here - you were still 96% protected against pregnancy. As for STIs; it's always a sound idea to fully tested, and good places for that are public health clinics, sexual health clinics or a Planned Parenthood.
If you'd like to post you zip code (or email it to me at raeATscarleteenDOTcom) I can see if there's somewhere that tests near you. Hang in there!
