Irrationally worried about being pregnant Watch

    Ok I'm really worried that I'm pregnant even though I have no symptoms or anything and the guy says there's a really small chance that I would get pregnant from this but over the last 1-2 months I've been sexually active. Only had actual sex (with a condom) like 4 times, 3 of those times it was a very short time and he never came but once he did (it was a really small amount because he'd came about 20 mins before and it was the day before my period) and we checked the condom and it seemed fine. But we did some other stuff and I'm thinking maybe after he'd came at other times he might've touched himself, got semen on his hand and then put it inside me. I got my period fine last monday (finished today) and it was normal as far as I could tell but I'm still really worried for some reason, and since I haven't missed a period it's too early for me to take a pregnancy test?

    I just don't know what I can do to make myself stop worrying.

    I'd eat my hat if you actually are pregnant, since he's only come inside you once, with a condom which didn't even split, and to top it all off you've had your period! If it makes you feel better, take a pregnancy test, which I believe are best taken 21 days after sex (correct me if I've got the number wrong, people). I don't really see any other way to ease your mind!

    If you are so concerned about pregnancy, have you thought about going on the pill? That, combined with condoms will surely ease your mind and you can have sex in peace

    Pregnancy test will obviously end your worries once and for all, which can be used on the fifth day of your period I think? Otherwise 3 weeks after sex. Some more sensitive pregnancy tests can be accurately used sooner but always check so you don't waste time/money.

    I think it would be very rare to become pregnant from him fingering you if there was just a little bit of *** there - not every seed sprouts and if it's just the *** on his fingers, the number of seeds is significantly reduced xD

    I was also going to suggest using the pill alongside condoms

    Okay so I took a pregnancy test today (Boots one) and it showed a negative sign, but the sign was still very faint (not as dark as the control line) but I could see it without squinting or anything. I'm going to take the second one next week but should I still be worried or...?

    3 weeks after you last had sex = enough time to wait for it to be almost as accurate as it can be.

    No need to be worried if you satisfied this condition when you take the tests.

    Honestly consider the pill alongside condoms if you are really worried, which you are! :P
