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.

Hey shes_cool,

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.

Here's some more info for you:

Emergency Contraception

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! [Smile]
