My boyfriend and I had sex for the first time yesterday. We were not planning this, so we didn’t have protection. He went inside me for a few seconds and drew back, but did not ejaculate inside me. He eventually ejaculated on my abdomen area (and I’m pretty sure nothing went near my vaginal area).
Should I get the morning after pill to be safe? I just don’t want to deal with the side-effects of the pill. Some advice would be of great help.
Thanks so much.
Used perfectly, your risk of pregnancy using withdrawal JUST ONCE is about 1 in 2,000. This is pretty low IF HE WITHDREW BEFORE ANY EJACULATION GOT INTO YOUR VAGINA.
You can use this risk of pregnancy in deciding about using Plan B if he is sure he did not come into your vagina.
1 million of the 10 million women, who have intercourse each night and don’t want to become pregnant, will use no contraceptive (10%).
Were a condom used correctly by a woman tonight her risk of pregnancy would be 1 in 4,000.
Were withdrawal used correctly tonight by a woman (as was the case for you and your boyfriend, I think) her risk of pregnancy from that one act of intercourse would be 1 in 2,000. Here is how that 1 in 2,000 risk is calculated:
- The perfect user failure rate for withdrawal is 4 pregnancies among 100 couples using withdrawal for a year PERFECTLY… no mistakes.
- This means 4 pregnancies in 100 couples having intercourse about 80 times a year or 4 pregnancies from 100 X 80 in 8,000 acts of intercourse.
- 4/8,000 = 1/2,000
- A couple using withdrawal perfectly ONCE has a risk of 1 in 2,000 of becoming pregnant.
Outercourse would lead to zero (0) pregnancies.
