Chances of being pregnant
An_190681 posted:
Hi, my girlfriend and I had unprotected sex Sunday morning (as I write this it is Monday afternoon). I should clarify by saying we had protected sex earlier that morning and then had unprotected sex for about 2 minutes maximum. I am worried that some of my pre-ejaculatory fluid could have had sperm from the sex we had earlier.

She has been taking birth control for about a month now but when she started taking the placebo pills last monday, she only bled until Thursday. She called her doctor and she said that she should take the pink pill again (she did this Sunday) so she is worried that the birth control will not help her in any way. She used the morning after pill less than 24 hours from Sunday's encounter.

We're both extremely anxious about this situation and would like to know truthfully what the chances are of her being pregnant are.

I would also like to add she she is three weeks away from her next period so we will not know anything definite until then and also she should technically not be very fertile as of now.

There is millions of sperm in pre-cum, but as she is on the pill and took the morning after pill there should be very little chance of her becoming pregnant.

Best of Luck.
