I'm really, really scared that I could be pregnant. 10 days ago I had sex with someone. We used a condom, which didn't break, and he pulled out of me without ejaculating and then came into the condom. Nothing came near me or anything like that. But I'm still scared. My period is due this week and I have what I'm pretty sure are PMS symptoms (sore breasts, breakouts, emotional stuff, backache, mild cramping), but still no sign of my period. [Frown] Sometimes it's pretty irregular, like skipping months at a time, but the past 6 months or so it's been really even.

Even though I think my risk was really low, I'm still terrified. What should I do?

Was the condom used for all genital contact?

yes, there was absolutely no genital contact before the condom was on (or after the condom was taken off).

The combination of condoms and withdrawal in perfect use is very, very effective, so pregnancy is very unlikely.

But it sounds like you're figuring out that perhaps you just don't feel ready -- or don't want to -- take any pregnancy risks at all. Does that sound right?

yeah, i think that does sound right. I wasn't really expecting how scary it would be. right now I'm feeling kind of crampy but I still don't have my period, and I'm just so scared. I can't stop crying. i don't know what to do.

lccalling, it sounds like your pregnancy risk was very, very low, and if you are cramping like you usually do for your period, it is probably on it's way since you are not very regular. If you are late for your period you can take a pregnancy test so you can be sure.

Since it sounds like activities that have a pregnancy risk (even very low) might just be too scary for you, why don't you check out this article on sexual activities that have NO pregnancy risk:
NO Pregnancy Risks

And here are some other useful ones to see help you slow down or see how ready you really are:
