sex with my boyfriend without a condom.

User Profile
I started my period today and I had sex with my boyfriend without a condom. He pulled out even though he didn't come. Is there a chance that I could get pregnant, even though he didn't come? I'm not on any type of birthcontrol.

Welcome to ehealthforum,
If you have intercourse during your period time (during the menstrual bleeding), chances of pregnancy is almost nil as chances of the egg being present in your body is nil. Pullout method is associated with highest failures and chances of pregnancy cannot be ruled out completely if you have early ovulation in your menstrual cycle (as sperms once released can stay alive for 3-4 days inside you). If you are worried about pregnancy, you should consider taking emergency contraception within 48 hours of the unprotected sexual contact to prevent pregnancy. Wait and watch for your next periods/withdrawal bleeding. 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 and repeated use of emergency contraception.
Take care.
