how do I know if I’m pregnant after a week goes by after sex?

The earliest that someone can take a pregnancy test is 14 days after the sexual contact.  At that time someone will get an accurate result.  If someone takes a pregnancy test before the 14 days, they may not get an accurate result and would want to take another test once it has been 14 days.

Someone can buy pregnancy tests over the counter. There is no age restriction and they are just as effective as long as it has been 14 days.

If, however, someone wants to make an appointment to take a pregnancy test or to discuss birth control or anything else they can give Teen Clinic a call at 303-442-5160.

I got my Depo shot two weeks ago and had unprotected sex with my boyfriend yesterday …

….and he did not pull out. Is there any chance I can be pregnant? I heard that after a week  the Depo is in full effect and you are protected against pregnancy?

Once someone has had a hormonal form of birth control (like the Depo shot)  for 1 week it can help prevent pregnancy up to 99% (even if ejaculation occurs in the vagina).  It takes a full week for the hormones to be integrated into the body and start working.

In order for the Depo Shot to be effective, a person needs to get the shot every 3 months.

So if the sexual contact happened after that first initial week, you would’ve been protected up to 99%.

Remember, the Depo Shot does not protect against STIs, only condoms and dental dams can.

Can you help me? I’ve just recently had sex without a condom…

…..I’m scared about pregnancy as he didn’t cum inside me but on my vagina. Can you provide me anything?

In order for someone to get pregnant, semen or pre-ejaculate needs to come into direct contact with the vagina. But even if someone does not ejaculate in the vagina, there is still a risk of pregnancy. If someone ejaculates on the outside of the body but still near the vagina, sperm can travel in to the vagina, putting them at risk of pregnancy.

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.

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.

Using a form of birth control is also a good idea. 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.

I’ve been on the pill for 2 weeks. If my boyfriends “cums ” inside me is there a possibility or any risk of myself becoming pregnant?

Great question!

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.

Remember, hormonal forms of birth control do not reduce the risk of STIs. Only condoms and dental dams can do this.

Me and my boyfriend had unprotected sex tonight…

…but I got the Nexplanon implant 3 days ago. Is there a chance I could still get pregnant?

Thanks for asking!

It takes the Nexplanon (and all hormonal forms of birth control) 1 week to become effective.  It is recommended to use a backup method during this week (like condoms or abstinence). After someone has had the Nexplanon for 1 week, it protects against pregnancy up to 99% for 3 years, even if ejaculation in the vagina occurs.

Since unprotected sec occurred before a full 7 days, there would be a risk of pregnancy in this situation.  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. Emergency Contraception works by delaying ovulation.

Remember, The Nexplanon does not reduce the risk of STIs, only condoms/dental dams can do this!

I am uncircumcised and had unprotected sex, is it possible to get pregnant?

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.

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.

Using a form of birth control is also a good idea. 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.

In order to have a baby, does the penis have to be inside the vagina, or do they just have to touch?

In order for someone to get pregnant, semen or pre-ejaculate needs to come into direct contact with the vagina. But even if someone does not ejaculate in the vagina, there is still a risk of pregnancy. If someone ejaculates on the outside of the body but still near the vagina, sperm can travel in to the vagina, putting them at risk of pregnancy.

Pre-ejaculate is something that everyone with a penis does when arousal happens. 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.

The best way to reduce the risk of pregnancy is to use a form of birth control consistently and correctly. It is also important to wear a condom during all sexual contact to help reduce the risk of both pregnancy and STIs.

I had sex on my last day of my period….

….My boyfriend said that a small amount of sperm came inside me after he pulled it out and ejaculated. Can I get pregnant with that? Thank you.

Pregnancy is possible when someone has sex on their period because pregnancy depends on ovulation ( when the egg is released from the ovary) and ovulation can happen anytime during the month.

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.

How long do I need to wait to take a pregnancy test before I can see if I’m pregnant or not?…

…. me and my boyfriend have sex a lot and he has cummed in me the past 4 times.

If sperm makes contact with the vagina there is a risk of pregnancy. Especially if there is no use of condoms or birth control.

The earliest that someone can take a pregnancy test and get an accurate result is 14 days after the sexual contact.

It would also be a good idea to think about using a condom during sexual contact. Condoms can help reduce the risk of STIs and pregnancy by up to 98% when used correctly.

Also considering a form of birth control may be a good idea. Birth control when used correctly can also help reduce the risk of pregnancy by up to 99%.
