Hello, my girlfriend and I think she may be pregnant.
Here are the hard facts:
We had unprotected sex (July 4th) using withdrawal method. (Withdrawal was well before I ejaculated, which we planned.) Some sperm may have gotten into her vagina though.
She is showing no signs of pregnancy, e.g. no soreness in breasts, no fatigue, no constant desire/necessity to urinate, etc. But she has not had her period yet, and it is late by about 1-3 days.
She recently had oral surgery, around July 13th, with general anesthesia and antibiotics along with pain killers.
Her regular cycle is around 28 days, her last period was June 25th-27th.
We plan to get a pregnancy test by Aug. 1st, but before then we are waiting to see if she gets her period.

my thought is it could be numerous things, the surgery and pain killers could possibly throw off her period.
she could just be late due to a cycle change. I would actually wait 2 weeks until after she was supposed to have her period to buy a pregnancy test. yes, its a tough wait, i know, but you never know.
just remember thought, always use protection. Pull out method never is safe.
