The "pull out method" is not reliable. Men leak sperm out all through the sex act, not just when they ejaculate so pulling out is rather pointless as you are already exposed to sperm-men cannot feel this leakage and they certainly cannot control it but it is there no matter what he says. It is possible that you are pregnant and depending n how long ago your sexual encounter was, it may be too early to be triggering a positive on a pregnancy test. You want to wait 4-6 weeks after sex to do a test. it takes at least this long to build up enough HCG (human chorionic gonadotropin-the hormone only pregnant women have in their urine that the pregnancy test looks for) You need to use the very first void (pee) of the morning as this is the most concentrated. At any unprotected sexual penetration, whether there is ejaculation or not, there is about a 25% chance for pregnancy. So chances are actually better for not being pregnant. If it hasnt been at least 4 weeks since you had sex, stop wasting money on tests and wait a little longer or at least wait until you are a week late for your period-I suspect that you are testing too early and testing too early can give you false positive results. Try not to stress since stress can delay your period. I know it is easier said than done but really, what can worrying about it do? What's done is done. The time to worry about pregnancy is before you have sex. Birth control options are easily available. You can find condoms and spermicide at any pharmacy or grocery store and condoms are even available (sometimes spermicide too) at convenience stores, gas stations and gas station bathrooms. There is no excuse. Saying "the heat of the moment" is no excuse for not protecting yourself and your future. It is best, once on the Pill, to stay on the Pill, even if you are not currently sexually active, because one never knows when the opportunity presents itself and therefore you are already ready for it. Starting again all over takes time for you to be fully protected again and it doesnt hurt you to take it if you are not sexually active. At least you know when to expect periods and periods are lighter and easier while on the Pill because with the Pill, the uterine lining build up each month is thinner so your bleeding will be lighter. And if the opportunity for sex comes up, you are always prepared. It is just silly, not to mention risky, not to. Good luck, hope all works out in your favor.
