Could I be Pregnant?

Sept 24th, (yesterday) My boyfriend and I had sex and the condom broke. I am not on any types of birth control and my last period was Sept 2-7. Today a milky white discharge is coming out of my vagina (Ive heard that this means a few things: I'm ovulating or I'm pregnant (I know I do not have a yeast infection) say that this means I am ovulating, if my boyfriend's sperm entered me yesterday could I still get pregnant today? I know that sperm can live inside you for 5-7 days, so now that I have this discharge I'm very concerned. Could I be pregnant or become pregnant today?

Great attitude about taking responsibility! That is a great response. There is a little window of opportunity for us women to get pregnant but each one of us are different. It really depends on your ovulation cycle which can be tested through an ovulation test at a local pharmacy.

You may have to wait at this point to see if you miss a period. If you miss a period, you can take a pregnancy test at that time. Unfortunately, sometimes it is a waiting game. Can you keep us updated?

Hi Importgirl,

The rule of thumb about ovulation is 14 days after the first day of your period which would take you around the 15th or so of September. There is also a rule of thumb that anytime you have sex, you certainly risk the chance of pregnancy as every woman is different. Since you had sex yesterday and if you have any concern for pregnancy, you are still in the window of opportunity for an emergency contraceptive called Plan B. Here is the website for more information http://www.planbonestep.com/.

Plan B should be taken within 72 hours of unprotected or questionably unprotected sex (as in the condom broke). This may help ease your concern and you still have time. Usually after you take Plan B, you will experience irregular periods for your next two cycles so plan accordingly for the next couple months.

Does this help answer your question?

I'm not going to take Plan B, if I am pregnant I am going to be responsible about the choice that I made I just know that it's too early to take a pregnancy test so all I can do is think about, am I or am I not. But what you said about ovulation.. so there is a very good chance I'm not?
