Me and my boyfriend had unprotected sex twice in 2 weeks. I have shown a few pregancy symptons lately but i wont know until september when my period is due. I had alot of discharge today and wondered if that shows that i am pregnant or not.

Hey, there, blonde, and welcome to Scarleteen.

Can you please start with the link posted at the top of this forum section?

http://www.scarleteen.com/forum/ultimatebb.php?/ubb/get_topic/f/27/t/027786.html

We can touch base from there if need be.

Sure, plenty of it in that post and the links included in it.

As that post explained, we have a limit on these types of questions, a limit we need our users to respect.

As that post also explained, we provide all the information one needs to know about things like how potential pregnancy "symptoms" aren't sound ways to try and determine pregnancy, and what to do when you choose to engage in sex without contraception (or STI protection). Were you able to look that and find out what to do from here?

There were a few different links included in that post.

I suggest you start with this one: Pregnancy Scared?

And there's this, specifically about "symptoms": Chicken Soup for the Pregnancy Symptom Freakout's Soul

And then that you follow the directions given in that link for when you clearly have had risks, namely, that you take a home pregnancy test if and when your period is late or missed, and also follow up soon with STI testing.

And obviously, if you don't want to become pregnant, then obviously, I'd suggest you stop having unprotected sex and add a contraceptive method or two -- like say, the pill and condoms, or some other combination, ideally with condoms being one component -- ASAP.
