My fiancé and I had "sex" (or a quicky) the day before I ovulated. He didn't cum in me at all because he pulled out even before he pre ejaculated. I took the morning after Plan B pill 3 days later after talking to my friend who scared me. I'm suppose to get my period next week February 6th according to my menstraition calendar. I'm really scared because I am not ready for a baby yet and that's making me feel sick all the time because I'm nervous and this anxiety is killing me. I'm really scared of taking a pregnancy test. My fiancé swears he got nothing inside. I did a lot of research and I know the pill is less effective as the hours pass and that it can mess up my period... Can I be pregnant? How long can my period be delayed? I have a feeling I'm not but I'm just really scared and nervous :(
The time to worry about being pregnant is before you have sex. You're probably safe, but your period may be off cycle for a few months after plan B. Plan B can also cause some of the symptoms of pregnancy. Interrupting intercourse is NOT a way to prevent pregnancy. Sperm are deposited in your vagina from the time he enters you. He cannot know when he deposits preejaculate either, he can't feel or control it. Get yourself on the pilll so you are safe. It will do away with shocking your body with hormones with plan b or worrying about pregnancy.
She is correct about withdrawal before ejaculation. It does NOTHING to prevent pregnancy. Men cannot feel or control this secretion of sperm. Sperm are secreted all through the sex act. Sperm are microscopic so even if he never sees anything when he masturbates, he is still secreting small amounts of sperm when he is sexually excited. This is a BIG misconception that we see on here all the time. People used the withdrawal method back when there was nothing else to use in the days before hormonal birth control. It is really a wives tale-there are plenty of babies who were conceived even though the male pulled out before ejaculation. Mens secretions are often different during vaginal sex than they are when he masturbates as well. Again, he cannot feel or control "pre-ejaculation" secretions. Plan b works best the sooner you take it after unprotected sex. If an egg was present and fertilized and began implanting into the uterine lining, Plab will not terminate a pregnancy already in progress. It is recommended that you take Plan b within 36 hours of a sexual encounter. If you are truly not ready for a baby yet, you should be using something more reliable than the calendar method. Calendar method has a high failure rate. It is better to use a calendar to try to conceive than to use it to NOT conceive. If you dont want to use hormonal contraceptives, then there are methods like condoms and spermicides, or the diaphragm. Modern contraceptives are much more reliable then the calendar method and most certainly better than the withdrawal method! Plan b wont make you any less anxious. It tends to throw off a womans cycle for months and for extra fun it can give you symptoms of pregnancy. Dont be surprised if your period is late and irregular for a few months. Once you are more than one week late, if you wish, you can test for pregnancy to put your mind at ease. More than likely you will be ok. You took Plan b within the recommended time and did all you could do after sex to prevent pregnancy. Like my friend Kaismama say, it is best to think about contraception BEFORE sex, not after. Hope everything works out in your favor. Both of my children were unplanned and I wouldnt change a thing even if I could go back and in spite of thinking at the time it was the worst thing that could have happened! Things happen for a reason.
