How likely is it for me to get pregnant?

Today my boyfriend and I did raw again and he always pulls out. He wasn't close to ejaculating but it was our 2nd round and Of course there is always still some cM in the urethra but I'm always a nervous person after sex. I know that probably means I'm not "ready" to be having sex ,but even when we use our condoms+spermicide + Bc I'm nervous even when I know everything is okay. I've been on Bc for almost 16 months I believe. Just need a little reassurance please

Hello, Anon.

Thank you for writing.

By BC I'll assume you mean the pill. There is only about a 1% risk of pregnancy when on the pill and having full intercourse so the risk is very small. Using other methods in addition to the pill (pulling out, condoms, etc) brings that to zero, in essence. So, you are certainly doing all you can to prevent pregnancy.

Hi, this is the same person that asked the first question. It's been a week today (aug 11) since we had the raw intercourse (without ejaculation from him) and I accidentally missed last nights birth control pill but I took it this morning when I could (not 24 hours since the time I was supposed to take it) and then took today's at the correct time. And I'm having some cramp like feelings and brown or yellow discharge (can't tell which color I'm sorry) but I have cramp like feelings all day, all month long. The color of my discharge is concerning me. And I have 15 days until my next period. Also I don't think you would be noticing "pregnancy signs" in a week. And I don't believe I have any stds or anything because I don't have any signs, so any explanation/guesses would be great. Thank you

The cramping is likely hormonal. If you are concerned that you might have a vaginal infection, see your doctor. Generally, unless you are having itching or burning, most vaginal discharge is normal and can vary in color and texture depending on the time of the month. I have already answered your question about pregnancy so I won't address that again.
