What are the chances of pregnancy.
Hi there

I'm writing this on behalf of a friend, because she asked me something & i didn't know the answer as I am still a virgin myself. On Saturday C (17) lost her virginity. She says that she didn't use protection. She's worried now because even though he didn't ejaculate, there's still a chance she could be pregnant, right? Please tell me what the chances of pregnancy is. Also how soon can she take a pregnancy test.

Many Thanks

She can use emergency contraception for up to 72 hours, this is available from a Chemist and is called Norlevo, or she can have a loop fitted before 5 days. These are emergency measures but it can prevent a pregnancy.
