My boyfriend and I had sex…

….He came inside me, but right away we had oral sex. Is there a chance I can still get pregnant?

Pregnancy is possible whenever sperm comes into contact with the vagina.  Since there was unprotected sex, there is a risk of pregnancy.

If you do not want pregnancy to occur, you could consider taking an emergency contraception. Emergency Contraception delays ovulation – the process when the ovaries release an egg – and thickens cervical mucus, which reduces the risk of pregnancy. Emergency contraception can be taken up to five days after the most recent sexual contact and is more effective the sooner it is taken.

It would also be a good idea to talk to a medical professional about starting a form of birth control.  Most birth control, when used correctly, can be up to 99% effective in reducing the risk of pregnancy. Condoms can also help reduce the risk of both STIs and pregnancy.
