This might be long, so I apologize. I’ve been a lurker a long time and need some people to help quell my fears (or give me a dose of reality I guess). My whole adult life (I’m 26) I’ve had a very regular period. 28 days on the mark every month give or take a day every now and then if I was exceptionally stressed. I’ve always felt a ping of pain and spotted when ovulating and wanted to start charting incase my fiance and I want to try charting for natural birth control after we’re married. October was my first month of doing so, and I didn’t take my temperature or anything, but according to the calender and the ping/spotting I ovulated on day 15 of my cycle. On day 18 (TMI ALERT) we were intimate and when I moved from up top when we were finished forgot to hold the condom (spermicidal condom if that helps you form an opinion) down and it slid off with me. It was outside of me, but just barely, and I swear when I pulled it out some got on the outside of my opening, but maybe not, it was a moment of blinded by panic removal. I’m not on monthly birth control pills so I took plan B about an hour and half later, but since this was after I ovulated I don’t know if it will really make a difference. My period should start the 11th, and waiting is so torturous! One day I know I’ll feel this angst while hoping i AM. But we’re just not ready yet and are really hoping I’m NOT. I know ‘it only takes one’ and there’s always a chance I ovulated late, but with 6 days left to wait, and the possibility of it not coming on time because I took plan B I just want some opinions. Somedays I swear I have EVERY pregnancy symptom in the book, even ones that don’t start till the 3rd trimester, and other days I’m sure I feel totally normal.
If this was you, with a day 18 slip, spermicidal condom, and plan B, how worried would you be. Do you think it’s likely I’m pregnant? Calm my fears or reality dose me if you think I am, but please don’t judge our pre-marital activities.
