You could be pregnant the withdrawal method has a 85% failure rate within the first year of use meaning 85 out of 100 couples who use this method will become pregnant within one year...your period can also be a couple of days late because you are stressing about being pregnant although mild cramping can also be a sign of pregnancy if your period doesn't come int he next 4 days go get an at home test or make an appointment with your doctor for a blood test and if it shows that you aren't pregnant and your not trying to become pregnant see about getting on some type of birth contorl while your there such as the pill, patch, ring, shot, IUD, vaginal spermicide, or a condom at the very least remember that by having unprotected sex you are putting yourself at risk for contracting STDs hope everything works out for you Good Luck and God bless!!!

AnswerHello -

In this situation there is a risk of pregnancy yes. The withdrawal method does cause conception to take place as sperm is present. Do a test.

AnswerThe withdrawal method is quite possibly the worse method of contraception because pre-ejaculate contains sperm as well as ejaculate which can get you pregnant as well. So yes, you could be pregnant. AnswerStatistics say that your chance of being pregnant is relatively low. With perfect use, there is a 5% - 25% risk. Most failures happen because the man didn't pull out in time and started to ejaculate before he was completely out. If you're feeling your regular pms symptoms, you're probably ok. Withdrawl method is the oldest form of Birth Control. It goes back to the ancient of days. I'm not advocating withdrawal as you're primary method of birth control. If you do not want to go through this again, consider some form of birth control next time.

Have you recently started being sexually active? Do you still have your regular pms symptoms? If so, you're homone balance may be off and therefore you're period is delayed. Out of all the people I've date, two people had their period delayed 1 week because we started to be sexually active. Take your mind off of it because stress can delay it too.

If you've read other posting on false negatives on hpt, just keep in mind that they have a 99% accuracy at 1 week after a missed period.

BTW, please follow up with your question so other worried people like you can hear your experience.

Why during the first cycle on the pill can you not get the withdrawal bleed on your pill break if you've never missed a pill and you use withdrawal as backup during sex?

The pill doesn't give you a withdrawal bleed. The only time the pill gives you a bleed is during your "off pill" days (7 days) when your period is expected. Using the withdrawal method as backup will NOT protect you from pregnancy. Withdrawal is NOT a backup method since you become pregnant from this method just as you do from full sex. You need to be using a backup method of protection in the form of condoms for the first 4-5 weeks of taking the pill. If you dont you run the risk of pregnancy.

If you missed 2 pills in a row at the end of the first week but took them the next day and had sex once with the pull out method what are the chances you could be pregnant?

Missing two pills together increases your chances of ovulating but it depends when after you missed the pills you had sex becasue you wouldn't ovulate for another couple of days. so if you had sex a few days AFTER the missed pills you have a 50% chance of getting pregnant. Take a test about 2 weeks after the sex if you don't have a period (withdrawal bleed) or you feel symptoms. Next time you miss pills use a condom for at least 2 weeks to be on the safe side, withdrawal is NOT a method of contraception.

Can you get pregnant if you missed the pill for 3 days?

Yes, you can. Be sure to use a backup method of contraception!

What are the chances of pregnancy if you are on birth control and the withdrawal method was used but missed 1 pill of your 28 day supply about 1 week before having sex?

The odds of becoming pregnant while on the pill are typically 1-2% over the course of a year, even when the male is not using the withdrawal method. If the method is employed properly, there is even less chance of fertilization. Typically, missing one pill will not have a serious impact on the efficacy controlling pregnancy.

Had a missed miscarriage Lots of cramping without any bleeding Pregnancy test is reading faded but still pregnant What can you do to flush out the pregnancy hormone?

There is NO such thing as a "missed miscarriage". You're either "pregnant" or "not pregnant". You can have a threatened miscarriage, but not a missed one. You cannot "flush out" pregnancy hormones; in fact, drinking lots of water only dilutes the urine more.Go to a doctor for a blood test and exam. These will be the most reliable.

What is the earliest possibility that you can find out your pregnant if you have a blood test to see if your pregnant?

10 days after a missed period one can detect preganancy by immuno assay method.
