User Profile

I am new to all of this. I am just trying to figure out if there is a chance that i could actually be preg. Ok so my last period started on Sept. 13th and ended around the 17th 2011. On the 27th of Sept my Bf came on my vagina, and two days later I noticed that I was ovulating...What are the chances of getting preg? Please help!!

Welcome to ehealthforum,
Sperms can stay alive for 3-5 days inside you once released. The egg once released from ovary can stay alive for 6-7 days. If semen has come in contact with vagina during your fertile days or at time close to probable ovulation day, then chances of pregnancy cannot be ruled out completely.
Wait and watch for your next periods. Look out for development of any new symptoms. Visit your doctor/gynecologist for further evaluation and assistance if you do not get your periods within 10 days of expected period dates, or if you get altered periods or if you develop any new symptoms suggestive of pregnancy.
If pregnancy gets ruled out and if you intend to remain sexually active, consider visiting your gynecologist to get started on suitable regular birth control measures to be protected (after your periods). Be regular with birth control use as instructed. Avoid having unprotected sexual contact.
Take care.
