I am 15 years old, and had sex for my first time on January 4th. The condom broke, and he pulled out the second after it broke, and he hadn't come yet. I was expecting my period around the 17th. I got it on the 15th which seemed pretty normal, but it is the 18th now, and it has already stopped. I am a bit worried, can someone please give me some advice??? I haven't really had any other signs of pregnancy, could I be pregnant?

The best advice I can give you, hon, is to go take a pregnancy test. It's been long enough since this happened that a test should be accurate, and you can set your mind at ease by knowing what's going on.

And for future reference, when you have a pregnancy risk as a result of a condom failure or anything else, Emergency Contraception is an excellent option if you're wanting to avoid pregnancy. Another thing you can do to help lower your risk of condom breakage is to make sure you're using a good brand, such as Durex or Kimono condoms, and to use plenty of water-based lube such as Astroglide or KY, as the lube they put on the condoms isn't nearly enough.
