Hi me and my boyfriend just had sex today. We were both virgins and it hurt me A LOT. I've been bleeding off and on all evening. I'm not sure if this is normal to be bleeding this much, although my boyfriend and his penis are rather large. I'm also concerned that I may get pregnant because he didn't have a condom. He tried to pull out, but I don't think it was very effective. My period was tapering off at the time, so what are my chances of becoming pregnant? If these are moderate to large chances, how would I obtain EC? I'm only 15 and my boyfriend's 18. Last of all my questions, how soon would I be able to find out if I'm pregnant or not?

Sex can cause some bleeding if you are not fully relaxed and aroused and/or not using enough lube. That's nothing unusual. Just give yourself some time to heal up. And if the bleeding doesn't stop in a couple of days, do give your gyn a call.

Second, unless you've had your period for years and are charting them consistently (complete with taking basal temperatures every day, etc), it is nigh on impossible to estimate when you may or may not be fertile. So you really should always be using protection if you do not plan on becoming pregnant.

(And btw, withdrawal, even when used 'correctly' is a very lousy method of protection. Precum can contain sperm as well, and it can be hard for a teen guy to find just the right moment to withdraw.)

Since you have had a risk, check out this article on EC: Emergency Contraception

And lastly, pregnancy tests will be accurate 10-14 days after the risk.

(And since sex without a condom also puts you at risks for STIs, you and your partner should get tested if you haven't already.)
