Okay here's my ordeal...me and my b/f have been having sex for about 10 months now and most of the time we are real careful (condoms and my BC) We've been scared of pregnancy a couple times before when he had unprotected sex but I was religiously taking my BC pills and I had either been on my period at the time or just getting off or on it. Well April 28 we had unprotected sex and he pulled out right before he came. But I also hadn't been on BC for over a week. I put on a BC patch later on that day but I've heard they really dont work anyways. I know pre-cum probably got in me and I'm in mid-cycle. So what do you suggest I do? Just wait to see if my period comes in a week or two? Please let me know!!!

please don't yell at us. we're just saintly volunteers who do this for free.

what you should do is wait 10-14 days after this particular sexual encounter and take a home pregnancy test.

and in the future, spare yourself the torment and promise yourself that you'll never cut corners on your protection every again. also, tell your boyfriend the hell you've just gone thru and make him promise you the same thing.

Your risk of pregnancy depends on when you ovulate and how quickly your body adjusted to the lack of hormones. There's really no way for us to know either of those things so as Gumdrop Girl said, a pregnancy test is an excellent idea.

Also, the patch truly does work for most women. If you've been using it for a while and have noticed no odd side effects (irregular bleeding for example) it's reasonable to expect it to be effective.

thanks...I think I'll just wait for a while and see if my period comes. I just keep thinking about how God isn't going to keep on giving me second chances. I read my cervical mucus method chart and the day I had unprotected sex was on my 18th day...and the 17th day is suppose to be your most fertile day....so that is freaking me out a little.

Actually, there is no one day that is most fertile for everyone.

If YOU have been sharting your mucus for some time and YOUR most fertile day has been around then, okay. But if you;re using a chart that says that day is everyone's most fertile day, it's bunk.

As well, when the pill or patch are working, you are no longer ovulating, so charting is moot.

yes. take another test and this time, follow the directions. use the first urine of that day. it's most concentrated right when you wake up. and of course, it has to be 10-14 after the sexual encounter in question. and please try to relax. i know that's hard, but worrying is not gonna help you.

Since it's been more than 14 since the incident in question, then yes, you can take the test, and if you follow the instructions properly, you'll get an accurate result.

Yes, if your pregnancy test comes out negative tomorrow as well, there is an extremely low chance that you could be pregnant.

So sit tight and wait for your period to come. If it still doesn't come on time, you might want to head to your medical practicioner for a more thorough pregnancy test then.
