Hi again!

Some sperm can contain ejaculate, if a man hasn't had sex for a few days or hasn't gone to the bathroom.

You can take a test 3-5 days before your period is due, depending on the kind of test. Check out your options at the drugstore.

Best,

Susan

Hi CC

The odds of any sexually active woman under 35 getting pregnant every month are around 20%. Emergency contraception is about 92% effective. That's about all we can tell you in terms of risk. Your risk is low.

Best,

Susan
