Question
Okay, Im 17, I have irregular periods. But me and my boyfriend ha unprotected sex last Tuesday. Yesterday made a week from the day we had sex... He did ejaculate inside me. I took the test last wednesday right after the day I had sex, is tested negative... But for the past few days I've been feeling a bit nausea like my stomach feels weird and I'll feel like I'm going to throw up but I haven't yet. The test said no, I took it the day right after sex, could I still be prgnant?

Answer
Kristen, Did you take another pregnancy test by now? Let me know. Perhaps you took the test too soon. You can contact a pregnancy resource center and they can give you a FREE test and tell you when would be a good time to have it. Go to http://www.optionline.org or http://www.heartbeatservices.org and click on the worldwide directory. Please email me at Carieichel@aol.com and let me know how you are doing. Would it be a problem if you are pregnant or do you want to be? Hope to hear from you soon. Oh, and there really is no such thing as "protected" sex. No birth control method is 100% safe in preventing pregnancy.
