Last weekend, my girlfriend and I had sex, and I ejaculated inside of her. She has been on BC for about 5 months now. The morning after we had sex, she bled. She believes this is from her irregular period, due to her pills. However, about a week or two prior to this sex, she'd been having terrible headaches and had been puking. She also puked 2 and 3 days after we had intercourse. She believes this is unrelated to our sex, because it was happening before also. I'm very concerned she may be pregnant.

If she has been taking her pills at the same time every day, any risk of pregnancy is quite small. If she is concerned, though, she can take a pregnancy test once it has been 10-14 days after the risk. I'm not hearing that *she's* concerned here, though--I want to make it clear that taking a pregnancy test is entirely her choice, not yours.

If she is bleeding after sex, you two should consider adding extra lube, since that will prevent small abrasions from happening.

Also, if she has a lot of irregular bleeding, you both should get STI testing, since irregular bleeding is a symptom of several STIs.
