Ok I will start from the top:
I had sex for the first time 10 days ago, and I used birrth control as well as a condom, and have been using birth control for about 6 months now. My boyfriend couldn't actually get his penis inside of me so therefore I am positive he didn't ejacualte. We tried to get it in twice but used a new condom each time.It went in a tiny bit but he wasn't able to keep his erection to keep it in. I had just finished my period and was on the first two pills of my new pack. I am sooo scared that I migh be pregnant. I threw up several hours after sex and since them I have been feeling pretty queasy and my lower back hurts.. I am not sure whether its stress of because of a chance of pregancy. I took a pregnancy test and it came out negative but I think it might have been too early after only ten days. Please help. I am sooo scared. [Frown] Also does birth control knock out pregnancy risk with oral sex and manual sex? Just making sure.

Understand that pregnancy isn't ever instant. In other words, even if you HAD become pregnant, it would have taken around a week and a bit to actually be a pregnancy, and you would NOT have symptoms within hours of something that won't happen for days.

If you're on hormonal BC and using condoms, so long as you use both properly, pregnancy is very, very, VERY unlikely. With that combination, you just really don't have any risk to be worried about. The symptoms you're having are very likely stress, and if not that, perhaps you're coming down with something like a flu.

Per oral sex and manual sex and pregnancy, those activities don't present pregnancy risks: for a pregnancy risk to occur, one needs to have direct genital contact with sperm.

One last thing though? If even when protecting yourself this much, you are this freaked about pregnancy, do be sure you really feel ready for the sex you're having. If you get more stress than good stuff from it, it's usually better just to hold off until you can feel much more relaxed about it all. [Smile]

Thank you so much for the quick reply. I appreciate your advice and it will be taken. Thanks again. But one more question, does the pregnancy test i took still stand accurate being that i took it ten days after sex?

Yes, it will be accurate- tests can be taken as early as 10-14 days after a risk.
