I recently had sex with my boyfriend, but he waited a couple minutes to take the condom off after he had an orgasm [the box says you are supposed to take it out immediatley after] and the outside of the condom got REALLY wet, and I am 100% positive that it wasnt because of me. I think his cum might have gotten out.

anyways, the question is... if you are a couple weeks pregnant, do you still get daily discharge? because i dont know if i am or not, but I still get discharge every day.

thanks!

One of the things that makes penetrative sex particularly enjoyable is the fact that it's quite wet. Your vagina has plenty of discharges--it helps clean it out, and makes sex pleasurable. Women naturally lubricate if they are sufficiently aroused for penetration. Companies make artifical lubricants for when the natural lube isn't enough. So, the odds are very good that the external wetness was indeed from you.

The main site has some fantastic articles, which will help answer your questions. More specifically, Honorably Discharged explains your discharges and their various uses and functions.

As for your pregnancy concern, the only way to tell is to have a positive pregnancy test. If you are really concerned, take a test, though according to our Risk Chart your risk is rather low. You used a condom, and a split or break would be noticable.

I hope this helps with some of your concerns. Go ahead and read the main site. There's some really good stuff on there.

No survivors? Then where do the stories come from, I wonder?

How do you know that the outside of the condom was not wet just from your own lubrication? Chances are, it was, and you just never realized the amount of lubrication that your vagina can produce.

I've never had a condom break, but from hearing stories it's proetty obvious that it breaks because the tear is very large and semen is everywhere. So I doubt you'd miss it if your condom broke.

The reason you're supposed to have him withdraw immediately after ejaculation (and do it next time!) is to prevent the condom from falling off if he pulls off later. If the condom remained on his penis then you should be all right.

There's a site here that you can use to determine your pregnancy and STD risk: http://www.scarleteen.com/reproduction/preg_risk.html
But at this point, it sounds as though you could just take a pregnancy test and find out (you said you would be a couple of weeks pregnant). Any OTC test should ease your worries. Just follow the directions on the box.
