Could I be pregnant?

I'm 16, my boyfriend and I had sex for literally 10 seconds maybe not even that just over a week ago. I've read things on the Internet and they are saying there is a chance and yes we didn't use any protection but it was all in the moment. I didn't intend for it to happen and I know it's been just over week but I keep reading things and panicking. My parents cannot know, they will honestly kill me and never trust me or the guy again. I've read symptoms and stuff and I have a few of them but some of them I have generally anyway. Could I or could I not be pregnant? :(

Editor's Comment

You could be pregnant. Even if your boyfriend did not ejaculate, there in leakage of sperm throughout sexual intercourse so you can still get pregnant. You should wait until the day of your missed period and then take a pregnancy test. If you need any help or support it is available for support around unprotected sex. or call the national helpline 0300 4000 999.
