    I was on Rigevidon and missed 2 days. I’m aware that this means the pill doesn’t work. So I started taking it again at the same time everyday. On the 8th day I had unprotected sex but he pulled out. I took the morning after pill in case. 5 weeks later I took 3 pregnancy tests and all came back negative. To ease my paranoia, is there still a chance I am pregnant??

    The pill is effective after 7 days of correct use if started in any part of the cycle that wasn't the start of it. So if you missed 2 pills bit then took then correctly for 8 days you would be protected.

    He pulled out before ejaculation. This isn't the best protection but it has pretty low probability of getting you pregnant. Most of the time it is ineffective because the guy didn't pull out in time. As such the probability of you being pregnant gets lower.

    Furthermore, you took a morning after pill. The already slim chance of you getting pregnant goes down even further.

    Finally. You took multiple tests 5 weeks after unprotected sex. Most pregnancy tests can tell if you're pregnant after around 3 weeks. So I'm pretty sure you're not pregnant.

    You can always ask for a test at your GP, they give more accurate results than a pregnancy test but it's very unlikely you would be pregnant.

    On that note, if you have such paranoia from having sex without a condom with him pulling out, then maybe you should consider if you should be having sex or consider more effective ways of contraception, or at least ones you don't need to remember to take, like the coil or the implant.

    Yep, you would have to be extremely unlucky to be pregnant, so unlucky that you would have been hit by lightning each time you went to buy a test...

    Every one has their own level of acceptable risk vs reward and I'm also wondering whether yours means that you'd be better off with the implant. That's even more reliable than having a sterilisation op, but will mean you're unlikely to get a regular monthly bleed. If that means regular testing to confirm you're not pregnant, then Poundland etc tests are much cheaper than the big names and as reliable.
