Wasn't In Long Enough

Dear TeenHealthFX,

 

Can you get pregnant with no condom and no birth control but he wasn't in long enough to come near coming?

Dear Wasn't In Long Enough,

 

The time is not the critical factor here; the key is whether you came into contact with pre-ejaculatory fluids also known as pre-cum.  Pre-cum contains sperm, so it is possible for a woman to get pregnant from pre-cum. If any of your boyfriend’s pre-cum got onto or near your vagina then there is a chance it could swim all the way to the ends of the Fallopian tube, join with an egg and result in pregnancy. It is possible that your boyfriend had pre-ejaculatory on the tip of his penis without either one of you being aware of it. The fluid is clear and can easily go unnoticed.  If he had an erection there is a good chance the fluid was present.

 

Early pregnancy symptoms will usually appear about 2 weeks after conception. Here are some indicators that could signal that you could be pregnant.

·          Missed periods

·          Frequent urination

·          Light headaches

·          Change in appetite

·          Nausea

·          Fatigue

·          Breast tenderness

All of the above symptoms can be caused by other factors too. The best way to find out if you are pregnant is to do a home pregnancy test or have a blood test done by a doctor or a health clinic.

 

TeenHealthFX would also like to caution you that not using a condom puts you at risk for being exposed to a sexually transmitted disease (STD.) People are not always symptomatic when carrying an STD and therefore could be infected without knowing it. It is important to think in a preventative way and use a condom each and every time you are having oral, anal, or vaginal sex. If you are going to be sexually active it would be a good idea to talk with a health care professional about birth control and educating yourself about practicing safer sex.

 

If you don't have a doctor and live in northern New Jersey, you can call the Adolescent/Young Adult Center for Health in Morristown 973-971-6475 or the Adolescent/Young Adult Center for Health in Summit at 908-522-5757 for an appointment. Outside this area contact a local Adolescent Medicine Specialist, your local teen health center or Planned Parenthood.
