See GYN: The pulling out method is like playing Russian roulette. You need to find out if you may have a pelvic infection and get treated accordingly. Don't wait.

Be safe. Your risk of an unintended pregnancy may be much greater and much more disastrous than your risk of a pelvic infection which can be diagnosed and treated relatively well. Give serious consideration to having an IUD or a subdermal implant which are the most effective reversible ways to prevent a pregnancy.
