Hello guys,

on the weekend, I got really really drunk and had unprotected sex with a random person.

Prior to hooking up we discussed using condoms and he said he is safe. We hooked up, but halfway through I saw that he had taken the condom off. He put it back on, but now I am stressing about the possibility of being pregnant.

He did not ejaculate while he did not have the condom on. I took the morning after pill to be safe, but I feel really upset with myself for trusting him and for doing that.

I really feel awful right now and disappointed in myself that I hooked up with a random and also scared shitless about the possibility of pregnancy and also risks involved with unprotected sex.

Anyone got info on effectiveness of morning after pill, and how soon I should get tested for STDs?

I'd appreciate any info.

The morning after pill is 75-89% effective, depending on how soon you take it after your risk. But let's also factor in the withdrawal used perfectly (since it was, while the condom wasn't), and recognize that with everything combined, you've probably had more like 95-99% protection from pregnancy.

In terms of STI testing, you'd want to wait around a month, then just get in the habit of yearly testing.

Do you want to talk about your feelings with all of this? You're clearly (and understandably) upset, and we're happy to talk with you about the emotional impact of this if you want to.
