it was 15th day of my cycle, 4th day of clear slippery fluid, and second day of EWCM. I always used to O day 16/17 (according to fertility monitor) when I tracked it.
Had sex, withdrawal method only for birth control. We were both super into it, and suddenly he seemed startled and very quickly pulled out. I really don’t want to have to get Plan B, but I’m worried this situation is high risk enough that I should.

Yup would get plan B if you think there’s a chance withdrawal didn’t work

If it’s been less than 72 hours get it just in case, I’m fairly certain it doesn’t work after that though.

It’s too close to call on timing. Lots of kids have been born based on accidents with rhythm method and withdrawal, so better be safe than sorry and get Plan B.

sunflower188 : it doesn’t hurt to get it. if you don’t, there is a chance. …
Edit: you didn’t say when it was. If it’s more than 72 hours ago, then I guess it’s too late.

I would, yes.
You shouldn’t be relying on withdrawal for birth control, especially around the time you’re ovulating. If you want to use FAM to prevent pregnancy, you should be using a barrier method or abstaining during your fertile window.

Ahh… thanks Bees… usually he pulls out well in advance but the sudden startled look on his face and quick pull out gives me no confidence that we succeeded this time… yikes

sunflower188 : I’ve been using withdrawal method with my fiancé for like 3 years now, last month we legit only had sex once, nothing special about that time meaning he withdrew in plenty of time…we’ve been having a lot less sex due to stress with career stuff plus wedding planning (wedding is in October). Yeah….I’m pregnant….I was upset bc my wedding is in 2 months and how will I hide this during all the festivities??? I always drink at parties, I have my shower, birthday wine making class, bachelorette, plus the actual wedding, I’m screwed 😂

Speaking as someone who had infertility troubles with my ex (due to him, not me), being on the other side (ie it taking way longer to get pregnant than you wanted) sucks too. Just trying to help you see the silver lining but that’s definitely a rough situation!!
that actually reminds me of another reason I’m nervous… my baby is 4 months old and I’ve heard women are super fertile around now. Arrrgh I just don’t want the hormones of plan B

sunflower188 : Wait a minute – so your OP said you used to ovulate at day 16 or 17 when you tracked…meaning you aren’t tracking now and you’re only 4 months post partum so really your cycles very well may not be even remotely regular or go back to what they were exactly?
Yeah…sorry, I know you don’t want to but Plan B stat unless you’re tight with the deity of your choosing and comfortable with just prayer.

sunflower188 : yeah, I was upset for 2 days but now I’m excited and feeling guilty I was upset at all, I have a coworker who has done in vitro three times with no luck so this is definitely a blessing. Although, I will be 4 months pregnant when I go to Africa, hopefully it’s not a big deal.

annabananabee : in fact my cycles have been a perfect 28 days for several months now… hence why I’m really freaked out
vanessalynn22 : I like your outlook because it is truly such a blessing. Just because I’m not into having a baby right now with a new partner doesn’t mean I don’t still see that!

If you don’t want a baby I have honestly no idea why you wouldn’t just get plan B, the side effects are absolutely minimal and it seems really irresponsible to use that as an excuse.
Edit – Just realized who you are, seriously i’m not sure if you just come here to make stuff up or if you make terrible life choices and need somewhere to vent. You aren’t even divorced from your husband and you are already sleeping with another guy multiple times a day with a barely 4 month old baby. For god sake if you’re going to be so reckless at least use protection, this guy is still married!
Yes you could be pregnant.
Yes you should get plan B.
