FAQ's

"I didn't have an orgasm - could I still be pregnant?"

Orgasms make no difference to whether you could be pregnant. Whether you come or not you should always use a condom or other form of contraception when you have sex.

"Could I still get pregnant even if he pulled out before he came?"

If semen (cum) gets anywhere near the vagina, there's always a chance of it getting inside and fertilising the egg. So pulling out before ejaculating - which is known as the withdrawal method - can't be relied on.

"Help! My period's late and I don't know what to do."

Periods can be late or irregular for lots of reasons, but if you've had sex and not used contraception or worried that what you used didn't work, you must take a pregnancy test as soon as possible.
