It was my first time and I had unprotected sex.

I am 17 years old and had unprotected sex about 2 weeks ago. It was my first time and I was scared to bits. My boyfriend said he didn't come into me but I know there's still a possibility of getting pregnant. I don't what to do now can someone please tell me what to do?

Editor's Comment

If you have sex without using contraception you can get pregnant even if your boyfriend pulled out before the final ejaculation. This is because semen leaks out during the whole process. If you have unprotected sex you can get emergency contraception for up to 5 days after the event, and you should go to a sexual health clinic for this.

Once it is past 5 days you would have to wait and see if your period comes. If it is late, I would suggest you do a pregnancy test to check that you are not pregnant.
