thank you for responding so promptly! but i'm still a bit troubled. basically the third part of the flow chart applies to me:

"there may be a LOW risk of pregnancy if semen is shared mouth-to-mouth between two partners, and then one of the partners performs unprotected cunnilingus (oral sex on a woman) with semen or traces of semen on or in his mouth."

i'm not that worried about STDs because my boyfriend and i have known each other for a long time and i am relatively confident that i don't need to be concerned about this at this point. but when can i be absolutely sure that i'm not pregnant because of this (eg. when i get my next period)? how will i be able to tell? is there any action that i can take to give myself a little more peace of mind? am i being too paranoid about this, considering that i'm only at a low risk of pregnancy?

The only way to know if you're pregnant, besides the very obvious, is to take a pregnancy test. Wait 10-14 days after the incident and take your first pregnancy test. If you get a negative result, wait a week and take another test to confirm it.

You really should be worried about STDs. Knowing someone for a long period time does nothing to protect you from STDs. Even if you are both "virgins" there is no guarantee there either since STDs/STIs are not only transmitted sexually. Do yourself a favor, get a pregnancy test and STD screening. Good luck.
