could i be pregnante

I have had unprotected sex for the last two days and like an hour after i took my birth control pills, but i have been off my birth control pills for the last 3 months, so my question is could i still have gotten preg even though i took them after?, please write back because im only 15 and need to know if its possible.
thanks

Re: could i be pregnante

Yes you could very easily be pregnant. For the pill to protect you you need to be taking it properly...taking it after the fact doesnt count.
So wait about 17 to 20 days after the sex and take a pregnancy test to see what the results are.

Re: could i have gotten pregnant?

You can always get pregnant even with protected sex. No birth control is 100% effective. Also you need to remember to take your pill at the same time every day. It almost sounds to me in your post like you take when you think of it...........say after sex. Since you are on the pill and don't say you missed any doses you probably will not get pregnant but that does not mean that you won't or can't get pregnant. Unless you abstain from sex entirely you must always be prepared for an unplanned pregnancy just in case you would happen to be one of those whose birth control does fail.

Re: could i be pregnant

Signs and symptoms of pregnancy vary with each individual. Some never know it until they miss their period and other know almost instantly be it by the morning sickness, urinary frequency or whatever.

Re: could i have gotten pregnant?

Heres another tip....your guy should always wear a condom. If he's trying to pull out before ejaculating, that takes incredible will power and alot of control. And remember, there is this stuff called pre-*** that many of us produce, (all of us to a certain extent) its not like ejaculating, just leaks out. Yes, it does contain enough sperm to cause a pregnancy. So, even by pulling out, he still could have left a little something behind and NOT even know it!

And if you're not pregnant....please take your birth control pills properly and you won't have to be in this situation again.

Re: could i be pregnant

Make sure your boyfriend wears a condom each and every time you guys have sex. This will save you from all of the stress and worrying about pregnancy.

I know three girls who have gotten pregnant using the "pull & pray" birth control method.

If you see yourself as old enough and mature enough to be having sex, you should be mature enough to practice SAFE SEX.

Take care.

Nic

Re: could i be pregnant

My gyn says pulling out is only about 80% effective. Good luck.

You were being very irresponsible and should think twice about this next time. You are probably going through a great deal of worry and stress, and seriously, it isn't fair to you, the potential father, or the potential baby. Don't do something if you know the consequences and you aren't prepared to deal with them.

It's like driving a car; it might look safe to drive through a red light when no one is looking, but there is always a chance that a cop is right around the corner or a car will "fall from the sky" and side swipe you. Sounds like a completely dumb idea doesn't it? That's because it is, and that's what it's like when you have unprotected sex. You are taking a chance with your own safety and others, and that is what you do when you have sex unprotected.

You need to learn more about sex. If you do not already know that you have a higher chance of getting pregnant on the pull out method than any other method, than you need to talk to someone. You should also know and be responsible enough to take your pills every day. Were you not listening to your doctor when he/she told you that you had to wait three months before it was safe? Were you not listening when your doctor told you that you had to take it at the same time every single day?

You think you are responsible enough to have sex? Maybe you should think it over again, because now you might be pregnant. Dumb move!

Sorry, don't mean to be harsh, but you did something very foolish and may end up paying for it BIG TIME! Think twice next time, because those few minutes under the sheets might turn into 19 years of your life! Always wear and use protection, unless you are ready.

HA! *ONLY* 80% effective?! Eighty percent is a high percentage of effectiveness... I really doubt the "pulling out" method is that effective in it's probability!

Re: could i be pregnant

i think 80% effective is a little high...most men think that they can pull out in time because of precum (the little bit of liquid that comes out right before ejaculation) but what everyone forgets is that precum has semen in it too! the sad truth is that there is a fairly good chance of you being preg. i got into the same situation and was sick with worry for a while. i used 2 different pregnancy tests and they both said i wasnt but after a month with no period i took another and it still said so. it turned out that it was just a fluke, i got my period 2 weeks late. i was feaking out the whole time though. all i can say is hope for the best and remember...safe sex is the ONLY way to be. ever since then i've carryed condoms in my purse...just in case. good luck!

Re: could i have gotten pregnant?

they say that the pill is only effective if you take it a certain amount of time BEFORE sex...not after. also remember that precum has sperm in it so even if he pulls out there is still a chance. my best advice it NEVER let him enter without a condom. no matter what. also remember stressing can make your period late so just chill.

Re: could i be pregnant

First off, I agree with what the others are saying. It takes a lot of guts to ask total strangers such personal advice. The only thing new I can offer is not to worry, IF you are not pregnant than the stress is going to prolong you from getting your period. Hope for the best, and think next time before you react!
