If I’ve been taking the pill for a week …

….. and had sex on ovulation day is there higher risk of being pregnant? He ejaculated inside me

When someone starts a new hormonal method of birth control (like the pill) they need to use a back up method (like condoms or practicing abstinence) for one week before that method will be effective.

After that first week, the hormones will be integrated into the body and can help prevent pregnancy up to 99% (even if ejaculation occurs in the vagina) when taken correctly. In order for the pill to be effective, a person needs to take the pill every day at the same time.

So if you waited a full 7 days, there would be protection as long as you were taking your pill at the same time. If the unprotected sex occurred on or before the 7th day there would be a risk of pregnancy. If this is the case, Emergency Contraception is an option which can be taken up to 5 days after the sexual contact but is more effective the sooner it is taken.

It is also important to know that unless someone is practicing the natural family planning method, it can be extremely difficult, if not impossible for someone to know when they are ovulating. A doctor would need to advise someone and how to do this method correctly.  In addition to this, most birth control pills work by stopping ovulation all together.

Remember, while the the pill helps reduce the risk of pregnancy, it does not reduce the risk of STIs. Only condoms and dental dams can.

Me and my girlfriend had sex today ….

….she came off of her period yesterday and we had unprotected sex.   I did not cum at all and we didn’t last long either, 5-10 minutes.   Is there any chances she could get pregnant from pre- cum even though she has just came off of her period?

Pregnancy is possible whenever sperm comes into contact with the vagina. Even if  someone is having unprotected sex, but they don’t ejaculate in or near their partner, pregnancy can still be possible as well because of something called pre-ejaculate. Pre-ejaculate is a clear, sticky fluid released by the penis between the beginning of arousal and ejaculation.  Some people release a small amount of pre-ejaculate; others may release quite a bit.

Although pre-ejaculate does not contain sperm when it is produced, it can pick up leftover sperm in the urethra. This means that pre-ejaculate can contain sperm when it leaves the body, creating a risk for pregnancy.  Pre-ejaculate can also transmit STIs.

It is also important to know that pregnancy depends on ovulation, which is when the egg is released from the ovary.  Ovulation can happen anytime during the month. Unless someone is practicing the natural family planning method, it can be extremely difficult, if not impossible for someone to know when they are ovulating. A doctor would need to advise someone and how to do this method correctly.

Emergency Contraception can help reduce the risk of pregnancy. Emergency Contraception works by delaying ovulation – the process when the ovaries release an egg – if ovulation has not already occurred. 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 consider starting a form of birth control. Most methods can be up to 99%effective when used correctly. Condoms can also help reduce the risk of STIs and pregnancy by 98% when used correctly.

Can you be pregnant if a guy cums in you on your most fertile day..

… But you still are taking the birth control pills.

When someone starts a new hormonal method of birth control (like the pill) they need to use a back up method (like condoms or practicing abstinence) for one week before that method will be effective.

After that first week, the hormones will be integrated into the body and can help prevent pregnancy up to 99% (even if ejaculation occurs in the vagina) when taken correctly. In order for The Pill to be taken correctly, a person needs to take the pill every day at the same time. 

It is also important to know that unless you are practicing the natural family planning method, it can be extremely difficult, if not impossible to know when exactly you are ovulating. This means that even if you keep a period calendar, you need to be also keeping track of ovulation by doing things like taking your temperature and checking your cervical mucus daily. This method is often used after consulting a doctor. A doctor would advise you on how to correctly use this method.

Remember, while the The Pill helps reduce the risk of pregnancy, it does not reduce the risk of STIs. Only condoms and dental dams can.

I’ve been on birth control for about 4 months……

………… my boyfriend ejaculated in me on my ovulation day. Should I still take Plan B?

My boyfriend rubbed his penis on my vagina, but he didn’t ejaculate near my vagina….

……Is there a chance I could get pregnant? we did that after 1-2 days after my period.

Pregnancy can happen anytime sperm comes into contact with the vagina. It is also important to say pregnancy depends on ovulation- the process in which an egg is released. Ovulation can happen at any time during someone’s period, making pregnancy possible during, before,and after the period.

If someone is having unprotected sex but ejaculation did not occur in the vagina, pregnancy can still be possible because of something called pre-cum. Pre-cum—officially called pre-ejaculate—is a clear, sticky fluid released by the penis between the beginning of arousal and ejaculation.  Some people release a small amount of pre-ejaculate; others may release quite a bit, and most people may not know when pre- ejaculate is happening

Although pre-ejaculate does not contain sperm when it is produced, it can pick up leftover sperm in the urethra. This means that pre-ejaculate can contain sperm when it leaves the body, creating a risk for pregnancy.  Pre-ejaculate can also transmit STIs.

Emergency Contraception can help reduce the risk of pregnancy. Emergency Contraception works by delaying ovulation – the process when the ovaries release an egg – if ovulation has not already occurred. Emergency contraception can be taken up to five days after the most recent sexual contact and is more effective the sooner it is taken.

The only way to know if you are pregnant is to take a test at least 14 days after the most recent sexual contact. You can trust the result then.

It would also be a good idea to consider starting a form of birth control. most methods can be up to 99% effective when used correctly. Condoms can also help reduce the risk of STIs and pregnancy by 98%.

I take my birth control on a normal basis and yesterday I had sex and my boyfriend came inside me. ….

…… I didn’t realize that today is my ovulation day, can I still take a plan b pill?

Great question! lets address a few things.

It is important to say that pregnancy is possible whenever sperm comes into contact with the vagina.  However, birth control methods greatly reduce that risk.  If you are taking your birth control correctly and consistently, you are up to 99% protected from pregnancy even if ejaculation in the vagina occurs.

It is also important to know that unless you are practicing the natural family planning method, it can be extremely difficult, if not impossible to know when exactly you are ovulating. This means that even if you keep a period calendar, you need to be also keeping track of ovulation by doing things like taking your temperature and checking your cervical mucus daily. This method is often used after consulting a doctor. A doctor would advise you on how to correctly use this method.

Emergency Contraception is an option. Emergency Contraception is a hormonal emergency birth control method used to delay ovulation to reduce the risk of a pregnancy. The hormones delay ovulation – the process when the ovaries release an egg – and thicken cervical mucus. Emergency Contraception is not an abortion pill. It will not harm or end a pregnancy; it will only work to delay ovulation to reduce the risk of a pregnancy. Emergency Contraception can be taken up to 5 days after pregnancy may have occurred, and it is more effective the sooner it is taken.

Remember, birth control does not reduce the risk of STIs, only condoms and dental dams can.

I had unprotected sex on my period…..

…… My partner pulled out but I was still worried so the morning after I took plan b. Is there still a possibility of getting pregnant?

Thanks for asking this!

I had unprotected sex yesterday. I had my Nexplanon removed today. I would be on the second day of ovulation. Could I become pregnant?

That is a great question! Lets talk a little bit about the Nexplanon.

The Nexplanon is a single matchstick-sized rod that is placed underneath the skin in your upper arm. A nurse or doctor inserts the rod. Once inserted, the rod releases hormones gradually for up to three years.

Nexplanon is 99% effective in preventing pregnancy for up to three years, but it does not protect against any STIs!

What is important to know is that pregnancy is possible as soon as the Nexplanon is removed.  It is also recommended to refrain from any unprotected vaginal intercourse for at least 5 days prior to the removal of the Nexplanon.  This is because sperm can live in the vagina for 5 days.  So if unprotected sex occurs during this time, pregnancy can be possible.

It is also important to know that unless you are practicing the natural family planning method, it can be extremely difficult, if not impossible to know when exactly you are ovulating. This means that even if you keep a period calendar, you need to be also keeping track of ovulation by doing things like taking your temperature and checking your cervical mucus daily. This method is often used after consulting a doctor. A doctor would advise you on how to correctly use this method.

The only way someone can know if they are pregnant is to take a test at least 14 days after the most recent sexual contact.  The result can be trusted then.
