I first started haveing sex three days ago... And three days in a row. We used a condom all three times. And just to be safe, I made him pull it out before he came... Well, the first time he didn't really make it... but i'm pretty sure the second time he did. And the third time he didn't even cum. The main thing I am worried about here is pregnancy. I believe I did the right thing by talking to my mom about it before I did it. I told her I was thinking about haveing sex and that I wanted birth control. She told me that I was too young to be haveing sex and wouldn't put me on the pill. Despite my attempts to abstain.. it happened anyway. She doesn't know that I've done it, and I don't plan on telling her. I do want some form of birth control though. How do you think I should go about this? And do you think there is already some possibility that I might be pregnant already? Please help.

Sweetie, condoms ARE a form of birth control, and very effective ones at that. Less than 2 in 100 women will become pregnant with perfect condom usage yearly, as compared to less than 1 with perfect pill/hormonal method usage -- though it's worthy of note that perfect pill usage is more difficult to obtain for most couples than perfect condom usage. Condoms also are the only birth control method that offers STI protection as well. :)
There's no need to pull out, though -- condoms are made to handle a full load, and being in a hurry to withdraw can actually increase the chance the condom slips. To be sure you're using condoms correctly, check out this page:
Knowing this, if you'd still like a prescription birth control method, you can leave us your zip code and we can direct you to a local health department or Planned Parenthood that can help you obtain your chosen method.
