Me and my bf had sex today. We had sex twice in the matter of two hours and used two separte condoms. After sex we realized that the condom had fallen off. One was in between my vaginal lips and the other was no where to be found. A little while ago when i went to the bathroom the condom came out of me. So the second time we had sex the first condom was pushed more into my vagina. What i wanna know is if there is a chance that i can get pregnant from a used condom being in me for that long, and how high the risk is. And is there anything i can do. Please help!!

From What's The Risk? - Five Easy Risk Assessment Flow Charts:

quote:

If you DID HAVE A PROBLEM WITH YOUR CONDOM, such as breakage, then you have a MODERATE to HIGH RISK of pregnancy. See your health care provider as soon as possible for a pregnancy test/Morning After Pill and an STD screening.


Your best bet, if you weren't using birth control pills in addition to the condoms, is to go to a doctor or Planned Parenthood clinic and get the emergency contraceptive pill, which is very effective if taken within 72 hours (3 days) of the sexual activity. You still have time to do this, so please call a clinic right away and go in to get it. It usually costs between $20 and $40, which is a *lot* cheaper than an unwanted pregnancy!

To find a Planned Parenthood clinic near you, you call go to their website:
http://www.plannedparenthood.org/ZIP.HTM

Also, it sounds like you might not have been putting on the condoms correctly, since it's not that common for them to just come off during sex if they're put on properly. You can check out A Simple Condom Primer for all the details on using condoms. And there's also
Safe, Sound & Sexy ? A Safer Sex How-To for more information on safer sex practices, and Margaret Sangers Disneyland - An easy chart of your birth control options
for more information on birth control methods.

Yes, you have a significant pregnancy risk and STD risk. If you had no back-up birth control method (like the Pill or a diaphragm) then you need to get Emergency Contraception now.

Check http://www.plannedparenthood.org/ZIP.HTM or call 1-888-NOT-2-LATE to find out where the morning after pill (EC) is locally available. An STD test for you and your boyfriend is also in order.

I'm glad to hear that the two of you were using protection. Check out A Simple Condom Primer to get some tips. Also, Margaret Sangers Disneyland - An easy chart of your birth control options will explain your options for a back-up birth control method - in case something like this happens again.
