The first day of my last period was January 19. I had sex a few times since then but I don't remember how many times. I'm worried that I had a pregnancy risk on February 3. My average cycle is 32 days. On that day, I was doing oral sex on my boyfriend. His penis was fully erect. After doing some oral sex, I tasted something and it reminded me of the taste of his ejaculate. I didn't see any ejaculate and it didn't feel like there was a lot in my mouth, just a taste. Then we decided to have intercourse instead of me finishing the oral sex. We were both naked. He rubbed his penis on the outside of my vagina for awhile. He was erect and I was very wet. He also put his penis inside my vagina but for only about a minute.

Finally, he put on a condom and he had intercourse until he definitely ejaculated. I don't know if he had ejaculated the first time when I tasted something. If it was ejaculate would I be at risk? When do I test?

Any unprotected genital contact can pose a pregnancy risk, although the risk is lower since he ejaculated in a condom. Proper condom use means using one from start to finish and for all genital contact though. Are you using any other form of birth control?

You can take a pregnancy test 10-14 days after a risk, or the first day of a missed period, whichever comes first. The results would be accurate then.

You have also had STI risks, so if you and your partner have never been tested, it would be really important to do so.

Are you currently trying to become pregnant? If not, would you like information on other methods of birth control as well?

No other forms of birth control. I don't want to get pregnant. I'm not worried about STI risk because we are monogamous and have been tested.

Alright. It sounds like you and your boyfriend essentially used withdrawal the first time which has an effectiveness rate of 96% with perfect use, and 73-82% with typical use. I would say that you used it perfectly because your boyfriend withdrew before being anywhere near ejaculation, but it's not an exact science. It's also impossible to know whether his pre-ejaculate contained sperm or not unfortunately. So, it doesn't sound like you had a very high risk of pregnancy, but I would still highly recommend doing a test in 10-14 days or if your period is late.

I hope this helps! Sorry I don't have better news.

Thank you. It makes more sense now. Its been 7 days since my possible risk. If I was pregnant (I don't know yet), would it be possible for me to be having symptoms already? Here's what I'm experiencing today: I've been noticing smells more than usual and some of them have made me feel a little queasy; my breasts look a little larger; and I have some bloating and gas.

Nobody answered my question. Maybe I was just imagining those symtoms. I haven't experienced any of those things for the past few days. Umm...I decided not to take a test yet. If my period is a week late then I'll take a test. I think I'll probably get my period though. You said it was a low risk, around 4%, right?

Hey Mustard,

No, these sorts of symptoms are not a good judge of whether you're pregnant or not, and would not come into play until much later in the pregnancy. The first symptom of pregnancy is a missed period.

Hope that helps.

We couldn't possibly guess, but if it's gone on for a week, that's unlikely.

How about calling your healthcare provider?
