My boyfriend and I recently started having sex and he is my first, yesterday he wanted to but didn't have any condoms. He told me he would pull out in time but he didn't he came earlier than he usually has and was still inside me, he told me it's no big deal and that he would just buy the pill to kill it before it has a chance to really grow, I'm so worried I really don't want to kill a baby, but im not even sure if im pregnant or not...I'm 17 and possibly pregnant, what do I do?

I would also suggest that after you get this incident figured out that you and the BF have a long chat about having sex and the consequences after the fact. No one can tell you to stop doing this but you need to sit down and think about those consequences and what it would mean for your future. I agree with Chet's post but I also want to make sure you understand that having sex at your age has a lot of consequences you might not be ready to handle. There is more than pregnancy to worry about. There is the emotional state. There are the possible diseases you can get too if he has been with other people before you. If you do get pregnant, then you have a lot of choices to make as to keeping the baby, giving the baby up for adoption, how you will finish high school and go to college if you are wanting that, how you will support the child and what kind of help from family/friends you can get and other things. If you are not pregnant, I suggest getting tested for STD's.

The morning after pill doesn't kill a baby. It stops you from getting pregnant. It won't work if you take it after you're already pregnant. This is why you only have 72 hours to take it after unprotected sex, and why they recommend that you take it 12 hours after sex if you can.

The morning after pill can stop you from ovulating so there is no egg to fertilize. If you've already ovulated it can make it difficult for the sperm to fertilize the egg. And if a sperm does fertilize the egg it can also make the lining or your uterus unsuitable to receive a fertilized egg so it won't grow.

The morning after pill is not something to rely on. It doesn't always work. And the side effects can be quite unpleasant.

If it's been less that 72 hours since you had sex you have time to take a morning after pill. How you get access to it depends on where you live.
