Dear Doctor

ora 2012-11-07 11:00:00
I am a 16 year old girl. I'm sitting here feeling totally stupid and really scared.....My boyfriend and I started having sex about four months ago and to start with we were really careful about using condoms. Whatever, yesterday we took a chance and didn't use one. I think he pulled out in the right time, but now I am really confused and scared. May I be pregnant? What can I do now? Please help me!

You should consult a gynecologist or GP immediately for emergency contraception. Withdrawal method is not safe at all. The failure rate of withdrawal method is high. The pregnancy rate is low but it is not zero, so you should take a pregnancy test if your period is late. Or you can buy early pregnancy test which is very sensitive, and detects the pregnancy hormone, hCG, 6 days before your missed period.

I think you do not have plan for pregnancy, so I recommend you to have a safe birth control method, for example condom, contraceptive pill.
