I had unprotected sex last week but am 100% sure I wasn't ovulating. But now I feel kind of nauseous and my breasts are sore. Could I be pregnant? 

The symptoms you're describing could be related to something else, not necessarily pregnancy.  Hormone changes can cause nausea and breast tenderness. The only way to know for sure whether you're pregnant is to take a pregnancy test. Make sure to wait at least 14 days after unprotected sex before taking the test, otherwise the result may not be accurate. 

What do I do if I'm pregnant? 

You have options! The best thing to do first is talk to an adult you trust.  It doesn't have to be your parents. At our clinic, the providers can talk to you about the options available to you and help you decide whether to continue with the pregnancy or not. You can make an appointment by calling 303-442-5160. 

My girlfriend says I can get her pregnant even if I don't cum in her. Is that true?

Yes. Pre-ejaculate (pre-cum) can lead to pregnancy in some cases. Also,  if semen is on the outside/near the vaginal opening there can be a risk of pregnancy.

If I missed my last period does that mean I'm pregnant?​

It depends! If you had sex in the last month, especially if you're not on birth control, missing your period can be a sign you're pregnant. However, missing a period could also be due to hormone changes, diet changes, stress, changes in sleep patterns, or other factors. We recommend taking a pregnancy test. That's the only way to know for sure whether or not you're pregnant. 

What kind of discharge do you get if you're pregnant?​

It depends! Everyone is different. Some people may have more discharge, but some people may not. The only way to know if you're pregnant is to take a test at least 14 days after sexual contact.

Are pregnancy tests always accurate?

Pregnancy tests are extremely accurate when you use them correctly. The tests you get at the drugstore work 99% of the time. They’re just as accurate as a urine pregnancy test that you’d get at a doctor’s office.
