My boyfriend and I had sex today. I am not on birth control but he always uses a condom. We have never had any problems. But this time, after he finished and pulled out there was cum. I was to freaked out to really see where it was exactly , but it was it was generally further back than my vagina, so good sign...? We then checked for breaks or leaks and couldn't find any. He said its nothing to worry about, but I'm still worried. Should I be?

Do you mean that there was fluid on the outside of the condom? If you used the condom correctly and it did not slip off, it is unlikely that whatever you saw on the outside of the condom was ejaculate. It is more likely that it was your own fluids mixed with lube.

It was thick and white, very different from what is typically on the outside. He might have not held the bottom while exiting, could it be seepage...?

It'd be unlikely for it to be seepage unless the condom came off. Was the condom still on his penis after he withdrew?

It was, but not completely. The majority was on correctly, but it was pulled up a bit.

If the condom was mostly on, then it does not sound like you had a condom failure.

Of course, if you are worried, you can still take EC to be extra safe. But it does not sound to me like you have a reason for concern.
