    Its way to soon to tell if you are pregnant, the spotting may be your period getting ready to start or just changes in hormones which is very normal, the nausa is probably nerves, i wouldnt worry too much unless you miss your period.

    Anytime you have unprotected sex there is ALWAYS a chance you could get pregnant. (Yes, even if he doesn't ejaculate inside you). The pull out method is not an effective means of birth control!!

    There is no way of telling this soon, however, considering the information given, it would SEEM as if your chances are slim. The only way to know for sure, is to wait and see. And in the future, if you aren't ready to be a parent, make your boyfriend wrap it up. Or abstain.
