My boyfriend and I just started having sex three weeks ago with each other. Before then, we were both virgins. We have only been using condoms so far, as we haven't had a chance to get oral contraceptives for me. Before he comes, my boyfriend has been pulling out as well, just for added safety.
Last week after he pulled out, he realized that he may have leaked a small amount of semen near my vaginal area. After he told me, I went to the bathroom and rinsed myself off down there with soap and water.
I was just wondering what you all thought my chance of pregnancy is. I should be getting my period any day now, and that is just making me more worried. If I don't get it within the next week and a half, I'm going to take a pregnancy test.
Actually, you've already figured out the solution. if in a week no period comes, take the test.
but for future reference, note:
1. don't pull out early with a condom. abrupt withdrawal can cause the condom to slip and spill. instead, let him finish the act as normal, then (while he's still erect!) he needs to grip the ring while withdrawing. this will keep the condom on his penis and prevent leaks.
2. If you have a spill, you can get emergency contraception. but it must be taken within 120 hours, preferably within 72 hours. the sooner you take it, the more effective it is. you can get EC at clinics, your regular doctor (but be prepared to pay out of pocket), and in some states and countries at the local pharmacy/chemist.
Yes, just let him finish becuase people really do get too caught up in trying to pull out early, and it can be very abrupt. you run higher risk of condom failure (tearing and slipping) that way. so just tell him to finish up and grip as usual.
There is a very slight chance you could get pregnant. First, he came only a little. And then you washed. Boyfriend and me used to have sex without a condom and well we never got pregnant. Don't worry. As long as your period comes in 2-4 wks.

By what miracle this was, we may never know.
A "little come" is all it takes - hell, if pre-cum can get people pregnant, I'm sure a miniscule drop of ejaculate could.
If you have sex with no protection, you WILL get pregnant sooner or later.
