    Birth control effectiveness
    vider345 posted:
    My girlfriend was off her birth control for approximately two weeks because she ran out of pills. We then had sex, but I'm pretty sure I didn't ejaculate inside her. A few hours after she took her birth control because she got more pills. Do we have anything to worry about?
    tlkittycat1968 responded:
    Yes. There is a chance she may have ovulated during that two weeks and if it was close to when you had sex, pregnancy is possible. She'll need to either wait and see if her next period comes or wait at least two weeks and take a test.

    Does it make a difference that she got her period during that two weeks and it ended the day before we had sex? Also, how potent can the precum be? Cause like I said, I'm 90% sure I didn't cum in her, but the clear stuff got in obviously
    tlkittycat1968 replied to vider345's response:
    Nope, doesn't make a difference. Sperm can live up to 5 days under the right conditions and if she happened to ovulate within a few days after her period ended, then pregnancy is still possible.

    Also, since your not 100% sure you didn't ejaculate any inside eher, there's still that possibility.
