Laura1318 agony auntNo days are safe for sex. Remember that.

Even if you use protection like condoms or pills,there is no 100% guarantee that you will not be pregnant.

There is still a minute chance of getting pregnant from 0.1% to 1% risk.

purrfectionist84 agony auntI got this information from the Planned Parenthood website (www.planned.org):

Yes, there is always a possibility of getting pregnant, no matter where you are in your menstrual cycle, if you have unprotected sex. Chances could be less likely, however, when you are on your period.

Most women, if they have a normal 28 day cycle, usually ovulate, or release an egg, 10-14 days from the first day of her period. This would be the time when a woman is most likely to get pregnant. This is not applicable if she does not have a regular cycle.

Keep in mind that sperm can live in the vagina for up to 7 days. If you are sexually active and want to avoid becoming pregnant, your best bet is to regularly use some sort of birth control method. If you are within 120 hours (5 days) after having sex without protection, you can also take emergency contraception (ECP) to prevent pregnancy.

A pregnancy test would show up accurately 10-14 days after unprotected sex.

I'd like to add that it's always best to just use protection. It isn't worth the anxiety caused by unprotected sex, no matter what stage of your cycle you're in. Menstrual cycles are imperfect and variable at times, and you just never know. You don't want to risk pregnancy when you have the option of avoiding it.

By the way, did he ejaculate in you? The chances of pregnancy are lower if he didn't, although it is still possible to become pregnant from pre-cum.

Best wishes.

Although unlikely there is a chance you could be pregnant. The best thing to do if you have any doubts at all is take the morning after pill. Be careful in future. xKx
