HI cheeto_s,

Your risk of getting pregnant is not big, but it is there.

Spermicides have a relatively low success rate for preventing pregnancy: according to Planned Parenthood, spermicides have been found to be 71% effective in preventing pregnancy with typical use and 85% effective with perfect use.

So, your options at this point are:

1. Depending on when this unprotected intercourse occurred, you can take emergency contraception. Emergency contraception is effective up to 120 hours after the pregnancy risk, though it is more likely to be effective the sooner it is taken.

2. You can wait 14 or more days after the unprotected intercourse and take a pregnancy test.

I also want to check in with you about whether you and your boyfriend have both recently been tested for STIs (sexually transmitted infections) as intercourse without a condom increases the risks of STI transmission.
