17 yr old male ???: You will never ever ever get pregnant though you may have some pregnant pauses. On the other hand, your girlfriend might. Always use protection!! You use Plan B as soon as possible after an "accident" and it has a very high efficacy rate.

Plan B: Anyone having intercourse without birth control or condoms may get pregnant. If intercourse was within 72 hours you consider taking plan b. Ella (ulipristal acetate) is another brand that can be used up to 5 days after unprotected intercourse. Plan b is a high dose of birth control to disrupt the hormonal patterns to delay or prevent ovulation. Abnormal bleeding after is common. Check preg test in 10 days.
