I've realised how stupid I was to not use a condom.

My Boyfriend and I were having protected sex, we had to stop because our takeaway arrived, brilliant timing I know. After we ate our food, we were in bed naked just cuddling. Because he'd only ever had protected sex before, I foolishly decided to let him go in unprotected. This only lasted about 2 minutes because he said he didn't want to ejaculate as he said due to it feeling amazing, he might ejaculate early. We then decided to do it again, with no condom, but the same thing happened. We're both 15 and I'm really scared I might be pregnant. We can't tell our parents because they'd go mental. His Mum had him was she was 16 and so did my Mum. We've had endless lectures about contraception, no one wants a baby. I've realised how stupid I was to not use a condom but now I'm really scared I might be pregnant. My period is due next week but I don't know if I should wait until then or what...?

Editor's Comment

It is always possible to get pregnant if you have unprotected sex even if your boyfriend does not ejaculate. There can be leakage of sperm during intercourse and before the final ejaculation and this can lead to pregnancy. If you are within 5 days of the event you can have an IUD fitted, or take hormonal emergency contraception to prevent pregnancy. If you are beyond the 5 days then you will need to do a pregnancy test 2-3 weeks after the incident.
I hope this doesn't sound hard, but please contact CareConfidential for help and support, for support around unprotected sex. or call the national helpline 0300 4000 999.
