about 2 weeks ago i had unprotected sex with the pull out method.(the 14th) I was wondering if you dont have ur period for 4 days and u have things like muscle soreness and stomach hurting and stuff but not puking just feel like your going to.. if that could be a symptom of pregnancy? thanks for your help i really appriciate it
Indeed, if your period is 4 days late and you had unprotected sex using withdrawal 2 weeks ago (which is not a method of birth control), you could ineed be pregnant: a late period is often the first syptom of a pregnancy.
I recommend that instead of looking at your body for further clues of pregnancy -this is not only highly unreliable, it's also just not good for one's sanity- you simply take a pregnancy test immediately. - You'll know for sure within 5 minutes and can then take it from there.
Also, no matter what the result of the pregancy test, because you had unprotected sex, you will also need to get an STD screen.
Thanks, im gettin a test tomorrow i just wanted to know if those things meant ne thing. im really worried i know i made a mistake and trust me it will never happen again. thanks for all your help u guys work wonders!
and im suppose to ask you for a friend if she had sex and didnt pull out or ne thing and it was about a week and a half ago or a week i dont remember but if she took the EC pill would it help n e at all or if she was preg would it harm the baby?
She'd not want to do that for the same reasons women should not continue oral contraceptives when pregnant: it can damage the fetus.
To boot, emergnecy contraception can only work BEFORE conception: there's no sense in taking it if conception has occurred, because it won't work -- it doesn't create a miscarriage, it prevents conception. That's only confusing if you think conception happens immediately with intercourse, which it doesn't usually.
They should explain this to her at PP.
In terms of your risk, yes, if you still don't have your period in a week I'd suggest another test. Of course, you could also GO to PP with your friend tomorrow and get a blood test done there.
