Could I get pregnant?

Hi so I'm Melanie. I just turned 18 today and I had sex with my boyfriend. The first time we had sex I thought it was protected but it wasn't. I felt some of his sperm I guess on my leg. According to him, he pulled out and none of it got inside but I feel like it did. We did it again, this time he wore condom. And now I just took a plan B for the first time ever. I took it like around a few minutes or an hour from having sex. I was just wondering if there could be a possibility of me getting pregnant? Also I would like some info on Taking the plan B since this was my first time and I really don't know about the subject...

I think you'll be fine. In the future, being a little more prepared will help to eliminate this stress. As far as the Plan B, as long as you follow the instructions on how to take it, it should give you the results you're wanting...even with eating.

Hi lovelymel_16,

Thank you for sharing your question with the EmpowHER community.

Anytime you have unprotected sex you increase your risk for pregnancy.  Also, since you are not confident that the withdrawal/pull out method was performed correctly, you could have become pregnant during that event. 

It is important to note that Plan B is less effective if you've already had unprotected sex earlier in your menstrual cycle, as you may already be pregnant.

Was the first event and second event you mentioned on the same day?  

Here is additional infomation to further help:

Also, here is information on the withdrawal method of birth control:

I hope this helps.

Be well,

Thank you so much for answering. And the two times we had sex were actually today. The first time, as I said, he wasn't wearing a condom but the second he did. But to make sure I didn't get pregnant, I bought a plan B which I took around one hour later after the second time we had sex. I'm honestly scared about it. Plus I heard you're not suppose to eat anything cause it could affect the pain. So I took the pill at 3 and ate some spicy chips around 5. Could I get pregnant like this? :/
