My partner (M 61) and I (F 29) happened to have intercourse during my fertile window. He underwent a TURP surgery for his BPH earlier this year, meaning that he now suffers from retrograde ejaculation (his semen goes into his bladder instead of exiting the penis). That's why we never used contraceptives. After our first intercourse session (when he did reach the orgasm), he went to the bathroom, and then we continued having intercourse. I should have gotten my period yesterday, and I am afraid I might be pregnant. It is too early to take a pregnancy test, too! Given his condition, is there any chance I could be pregnant?

When did this happen?  Typically,  your fertile window is mid cycle,  so by the time your period is due,  it's not too early to take a pregnancy test.

I don’t know there is a guarantee that no semen exits the penis after this prostate surgery. Are you experiencing other early pregnancy signs? Run a couple of pregnancy tests at one week intervals to determine your status. Good luck!
