I had sex with an old boyfriend a few days ago. He ejaculated inside all 4 times. Well, long story short, I never had the chance or the cash to buy the morning after pill. I have a very irregular cycle, my periods come and go when they want. I am very anxious these days, I was wondering is there even a possibility that I end up pregnant sense I never have my period? I never know when I ovulate either. *p.s I use to be on the pill to regulate my period, but I stopped it, I kept forgetting them and I was not having any sexual activities.
When your periods are irregular, its always difficult to know when you can get pregnant. Its possible that you got pregnant, but not really probable, since with irregular cycles its really hard to hit on a fertile period. You need to take a little responsibility for your body, and have some respect for yourself. Don't take these chances.
Anytime you have unprotected penetration, whether he ejaculates or not, you risk the possibility of a pregnancy. It is possible to ovulate and not have menstrual flow. It isnt a usual thing, but it is not unheard of so lack of menstrual flow doesnt mean you are not ovulating. Chances are better for not being pregnant than being pregnant. On average (and there are a lot of variables to this but this is average) a woman has about a 15-25% chance of getting pregnant when she has sexual intercourse. So, this means she has a 75-85% chance for NOT getting pregnant. Emergency contraception makes it more like and 80% chance for no pregnancy so it only ups the odds slightly (which, to me, for the cost, I am not sure it is worth it, but aggressive marketing and controversial debate about it from the media has brought a lot of attention to this drug and every girl/woman seems to think it is the be all end all for preventing pregnancy when regular birth control pills have a less than 1% failure rate when taken correctly and consistently!) If a woman is going to be sexually active, it just makes sense that she protect herself. In today's society, there is no excuse not to use protection. We have more protection readily available to us than we ever have had in all of history. Condoms can be found at any grocery store, drug store, convenience store and even gas station restrooms at inexpensive prices! If a woman knows she may be sexually active, it just makes sense that she be on some reliable form of birth control and in your case, a hormonal birth control will do double duty as it will regulate your cycle. If you cannot remember to take pills, you may consider an implanted device like Implanon/Nexplanon or an IUD which could be good for 3, 5 or even 10 years depending on which device you choose. At this point, all you can do is wait and see. If you are more than a week late for when you think your period should come or say by this time next month, you can do a simple urine home pregnancy test and in the meantime, make an appt with a gynecologist or with the County Clinic or Planned Parenthood about a form of hormonal birth control or get a box of condoms and carry a few in your purse. It is better that you carry them in your purse than him carry them in his wallet because the heat from his butt can break down the latex causing it to break or tear during sex. Good luck!-I hope all comes out in your favor!
