You do not need to: take plan b. I do not think you are going to have any side effect from this action. No risk of pregnancy.

Women: By and large, because women (in a traditional setting of penile-vaginal intercourse type sex) are the 'receptors' and have secretions deposited inside them, they are more likely to obtain infections than men. This is especially true for things like hiv.

You might be: Condoms are not very effective by themselves because there is leakage around the base or they may leak. The pull out method is also very unreliable. We call people who count on the pull out method 'parents'. Check a pregnancy test in a few days. Check again 3-4 days after that as well to be sure.

A 21-year-old female asked:

2 days late for my period, we used a condom and he pulled out while still wearing it before ejaculating can I be pregnant?

Check a HPT: 2 days-late is common and so it is difficult to tell. You may want to do a home pregnancy test which is easy to do, fast, and quite accurate. If negative, waite 5-7 days and repeat and if still negative, likely it is negative. If positive, congrats and good luck.

It depends: Each test is different. Most tests show two bars as positive. The package will tell you the best time to take a test. Typically mid void first thing in the morning. The closer to the time of expected next period is best.
