"pulling out" is not a reliable form of birth control since there are sperm present in the fluid released by the penis during sex, but before ejaculation. If you have missed a period or have any other concerns that you might be pregnant, you should take a pregnancy test.
You can either take a home pregnancy test as long as it has been 5- 6 weeks since your last normal period, or you can go see your doctor and they can test you. A home pregnancy test is 97% accurate if taken a week or more after the missed period and a doctor's urine test can tell if you are pregnant right around when your next period should come. Even if you are not pregnant, if do not want to become pregnant at this time, you should talk to your doctor about reliable birth control options for you. Good luck! ...Read more
