ok..well.. i am 19 years old..about a year ago i stoppoed taking the pill(i took it for 2 years prior).I have been with my boyfriend for 4 years...and we have had unprotected sex...he just pulls out before he cums. Its been like this for a year...and we feel that we are very careful when we do it. But my last period which was 3 weeks ago...only lasted for 2 days when it normally last 6 or 7 days. ever since i have had a bloody discharge...which i think is what people are reffering to as spotting. i have felt very sick the past week and i have been havin alot of pain all over my body...and normally i am pretty healthy and active so its unusual for me. i am just wondering if maybe i am pregnant but i also was wondering if this was a sign for any type of std...i trust my bf but i am thinkin he may have cheated on me and i am just wondering if these are signs for an std...i do have a pregnancy test to take....to rule out pregnancy...but i wanted your opinion!!! please help as soon as possible!!! im kinda freakin out

Withdrawal (pulling out before he cums) is not an effective method of birth control. Even if you're careful, there can still be sperm in the pre-ejaculate that can reach a fertile egg. So yes, you certainly could be pregnant if you've had intercourse. It's unlikely you'd have any physical symptoms yet, though. Taking the home pregnancy test will confirm any pregnancy that might have happened before 10 days ago. Anything after that (for example, if you had sex 4 days ago) won't show up on that test, even if you were pregnant. I hope that made some sense. If you're not feeling well, though, seeing a doctor is a good plan. You could have a virus or something that needs treatment. I hope that helps a bit.
