i really need help cus im getting super scared. me and my boyfriend had sex on august 9th using the pull-out method(i know,super irresponsible) he swore he didnt cum at all and that he went to the bathroom half an hour before that happened. i didnt really worry until i checked and found out that my ovulation day(the first day of my last period was july 23rd) was around that time and when i researched about pre-cum i got even more freaked out cus people were saying you can get pregnant. so on august 11th i took the next choice pills, the first at 3pm then the second one at 3 am. the next day i started feeling light cramps on and off then on the second day i started feeling bloated,cramps-still on and off-,my breasts are tender. and on the third day i started feeling nauseas,slight cramps, headaches(more like migranes),and my breasts are still tender. im a worrier so my boyfriend has done some research and told me these are symptoms but i am still super scared that im pregnant. what are the chances of that happening? please help..
