Me and my boyfriend had sex when I thought I was safe. However I found out that if I started my birth control late, then I had a chance of pregnancy. He did pull out of me before ejaculation but I am not sure if any got inside of me. Around 32 hours after sex, I took plan b as directed. I am scared to death of the possibilities of pregnancy, I took a pill the day before we had sex, but the two days before that were the ones I missed. Please help me, Im so scared. I know that I made a bad decision but can anyone help answer my question? What are my chances of being getting/being pregnant? My period wont start for another three weeks.

Hey there, horselvr90- welcome to Scarleteen.

I'm afraid that there is always a risk with intercourse, and there isn't any magic formula or way to tell how large that risk actually is.

If I understand you correctly, you missed two days' worth of pills in your cycle, had sex without ejaculation, and took the morning after pill later. While missing pills does compromise the effectiveness of birth control, the fact that the withdrawl method was used and Plan B was taken (in addition to already being on hormonal birth control) does help to minimize any potential pregnancy risk.

I don't think you've had a big risk; a pregnancy test is accurate 10 to 14 days after a risk. I know that "wait and see" is a poor answer to your question, but it's really the only one that's possible at the moment.

I hope this has helped!
