So my boyfriend and I had sex a few days ago, and when we were done we wanted another go, so we used the same condom again (we did NOT take it off after the first time). There were no rips or tears, nothing felt different about it, and I was on BC until a few weeks ago when my supply ran out. I know this was stupid and dumb and a horrible choice on both of ours parts. I am now three days late from when I should have gotten my period, and while I'm hoping it's simply my hormones getting back to their normal levels after BC, I was wondering what my chances of being pregnant are. I'm losing sleep over it, and honestly I just want to put my mind at ease. Thanks <3

This is incorrect usage of the condom, which can lower it's effective rate. Going off birth control can also change your cycle. If you are late for a period, you should take a pregnancy test now.

Are you having trouble accessing refills for your birth control?
