Pregnancy and ovulation

Hi I'm wondering if anyone could help me. This is guna be a bit of a long winded post no doubt. Sorry about that but I just want some opinions as Iv been looking online for the last two days (mainly due to worry). So I know it's daft but I had unprotected sex with my bf using the pull out method- which we have done from day one. However, my menstrual cycle is pretty much bob (27/ 28 days) so I worked out when I should be ovulating which was from the 12th march meaning I should have ovulated on 17th march considering all Is right. With this in mind Iv had unprotected sex using the pull out method on the 14th and 16th. So the day before I ovulated! However, I'm worried because my bf re entered me after ejaculating . I swear some of his c*m got inside me at one point when he had pulled out too. I'm wondering about the possibilities of pregnancy even tho he didn't actually "relieve" himself inside me. I'm curious as he pushed himself back inside me straight after he ejaculated.
It's now the day after ovulation has taken place and I'm completely dry! On the 16th (day before ovulation) I did have some cervical mucus in the morning but because of sex during that day, I don't know what was my fluids etc. On the day of ovulation however, there was no mucus that I noticed but my underwear was very wet (sorry for too much info :/)
I'm not due on for another two weeks (31st march) but I'm a worrier
I know youl probably be thinking I'm daft n that I shouldn't have had unprotected sex in the first place but it's been and done now. I just want some advice if any of you can help me out. Thanks

Welcome to ehealthforum,
For a regular menstrual cycle of about 28-30 days length, the usual fertile days would lie between days 8-18 of the cycle taking day 1 as first day of bleeding with ovulation occurring around 14th-16th day. If fertile mucus had been present at time of intercourse, sperms can stay alive for 5-7 days and fertilize the egg upon ovulation. After ovulation, egg has only 24-48 hours to get fertilized. The pullout/withdrawal method of contraception is known to be associated with highest failures (pre-cum/pre-ejaculatory fluid is known to contain sperms and no man can be 100% sure that pre-cum/pre-ejaculatory fluid did not leak out during vaginal penetration), hence if you were sexually active around ovulation time, chances of pregnancy cannot be ruled out completely. Wait and watch for your periods. Look out for development of any other new symptoms if pregnancy is suspected. If periods do not start within 10 days of expected period dates, or if you get abnormal periods, or if you suspect chances of pregnancy, consider visiting your doctor/gynecologist at the earliest for thorough examination (to confirm pregnancy related changes/signs in body) and blood/serum HCG level test (to confirm/rule out pregnancy accurately). If pregnancy gets ruled out, and if you are not ready for pregnancy, but intend to remain sexually active, you should 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. Be in regular monitoring and follow-up with your treating doctor/gynecologist and report any new/abnormal symptoms immediately. Drink plenty of water. Take adequate rest. Maintain healthy diet and lifestyle.
Take care.
