I had unprotected sex on Saturday and I was ovulating. He pulled out (I know not smart method) and I know there is presemen that comes out and I know that's in me for sure. Now it's 4 days later and my breasts are starting to hurt and I have cranks! What are my chances of getting pregnant?

This is the wrong board for this question. This board is for women who are ALREADY pregnant. Try the Could I be Pregnant board.

If by some chance you did get pregnant from that encounter, it would be way too early for symptoms. It takes 6-10 days for a fertilized egg (if there is one) to implant and begin producing the hormones that cause the symptoms.

In any given month, a couple with perfect timing has a 20-25% chance of pregnancy so I'd say those are your chances.
