Hi Demetra,

Best thing you can do is to go along to your doctor and ask for them to do a blood test checking your HCG levels.

It can take up to a couple of weeks for a positive test to show up in some people - it really depends where in your cycle you have ovulated.

Unfortunately, him withdrawing makes little difference, it really is not an effective method of contraception unless you are charting your cycle as well.

Even small amounts of seminal fluid can lead to a pregnancy - and 'pre-come' - what can be present before penetration can be enough!

i think you should ask your doctor for a blood test. i went through the same thing with my son and it's the only sure way of knowing.
