Hi there, The spermicide from the condom isn't sufficient to protect against pregnancy, so right now, it's time for your partner to get emergency contraception. Here's our article about it: Emergency Contraception It includes a hotline of providers and additional information about EC.
So hop to it; EC is more likely to be effective when it's taken ASAP. Also, it's a good idea to get tested for STDs after you deal with this immediate pregnancy crisis, and perhaps investigate if you were using the condom properly. Good luck!
