So, here's a brief of what happened: my boyfriend and I (both 15) had our first time together, but we must've done something wrong, because the condom broke (no, it was not old or had been sitting in his wallet for months. Brand new.) We stopped immediately.

-He did NOT come in me. He said there was pre-come but a very, very small amount.
-If I counted/calculated right, then I was ovulating, but my most fertile day is today and the incident happened two days ago, on Wednesday.
-The next morning, 14 hours after the incident, I bought and took the Plan B pill as directed by the pharmacist and on the package (take two pills at the same time).

Please please please help me, I am so terrified.... thank you.

Are you using a water-based lubricant with the condom, Ellen? If not, it's highly suggested-- not only does it make things feel much better for both parties, it significantly reduces the chance of the condom breaking.

Your pregnancy risk here is fairly low, though present nonetheless. But you took Plan B within the best window that you can, which yields a fairly high efficacy rate- 75%-89%.

It's likely that you will get some period-like bleeding soon, which will let you know if the pills have been effective or not. Even then, a regular pregnancy test should be accurate 10-14 days after the risk if you have any doubts by that time.

But invest in some water-based lubricant that you both like and you likely won't have a problem with breakage in the future.

Let us know if we can help you further. [Smile]
