Could I be pregnant?

Im 20 years old. I just started keeping track of when I get my period about 8 months ago. I usually get it every 27-30 days. Ive never been on birth control. About 2 months ago I started having sex with my boyfriend, and to be honest we havnt been all that careful. Once the condom broke, and most of the time he just pulls out. And we usually keep having sex after he cums, without taking a break. I got my last period on December 15th, its been 36 almost 37 days now since my last period. A couple weeks after I got off my period I started spotting. Ive never done that before. It was thick, brown and only lasted for a couple of days. Ive been cramping ever since then and Im constipated... Im scared I might be pregnant. I havnt been stressed out about anything and I Know that we havnt been all that careful so it is possible. But how likely is it that I could be pregnant?

I'm sorry to tell you this, but it's quite likely that you might be pregnant.

The time the condom broke could be enough to get a woman pregnant, since ejaculate would have entered your vagina. In addition to that, anytime you continued having sex after he pulled out, he would have had ejaculate fluid on his penis, and that's enough to get a woman pregnant as well.

I think you should get a home pregnancy test and take it, to see what your results are. If you are pregnant, you need to know. If you aren't pregnant, you can stop worrying quite so much. Will you do that, Anon?

And if you aren't pregnant, but plan to continue having sex with your boyfriend, is there information on birth control that we could provide you? Would you consider going on the pill, or at least being more conscious of your condom use? I'd hate for you to have to deal with the anxiety of another pregnancy scare.

Please take a pregnancy test and come back and let us know your results, OK?
