Chances? - February 1st 2016, 02:53 AM

I know I'm likely being paranoid, but I need advice on whether I could get pregnant.

I had sex today with my boyfriend, and it was pretty great. We made sure to use protection, as he had a condom. However, we got interrupted before either of us could finish (boo), and when he pulled out, we noticed that the condom had torn open completely. Like, halfway down his penis ripped open. Although he didn't come, I know that there was likely at least a fair amount of precum. I'm pretty sure my period is going to start in the next week, as I've started to get the PMS and cramps I get the week before. We're going to get the morning after pill for tomorrow but I'm still concerned. How high do you think the chance is of becoming pregnant? Also, advice on what could have caused this and how to prevent it in the future?

The likelihood of getting pregnant, without him ejaculating is pretty low. If you take the morning after pill the likelihood is practically zero. I personally don't think you have anything to worry about if you use the emergency contraception.

As for why the condom broke, the answer is unclear. It could have been old or defective, I can't really give you an answer. But the best way to avoid this type of situation in the future is if you get on some time of birth control yourself. The pill is much more effective against preventing pregnancy as are other birth control methods. You will need to make an appointment with your doctor to talk about your options.
