Hi I have a question. Me and my boyfriend were very stupid this month and had unprotected sex a 3 times. However he withdrew every time but on the first time he withdrew and seconds later he came. I felt around myself and I didn't feel anything on me so assumed he did pull out in time. And the other two times he didn't come at all. The first time when he came happened the day my period ended and since then I started tracking my cervical mucus to make sure I wasn't ovulating then and I'm almost positive I ovulated 2 weeks after that incident because I had egg white looking discharge for 2 days. It has been 15 days since my predicted ovulation. I typically have long distance between periods, like around 32 to 36 days. I am on day 35 of my cycle and no period. I I am just wondering how likely it is for me to be pregnant considering when I think I ovulated and since we used withdrawal. Also no pregnancy symptoms or anything. I'm just terrified.

Hi Carolina! Welcome to Scarleteen! [Smile]

The only way someone can know if they are pregnant or not is by taking a pregnancy test. You can take one after you are missing a period or after 15 days of the risk.

Withdrawal has a 96% of efficency rate with perfect use and around 80% with typical use. Per your "predicted" ovulation, all I can tell you is that charting your cervical mucus takes more than just one month of charting. Charting takes several months so you can have a better estimate.

I'm going to leave a couple of links for you that I hope can help you:

Just remember that having unprotected sex also carries a risk of STI's so is always good to keep up to date with testing. Moving forward, maybe it would be a good idea to discuss with your partner how unprotected sex is making you feel anxious and what both of you can do to make safer decisions. If this is something you would like to talk about, we would be more than happy to do it with you. [Smile]
