Hey Kayyybeee: Welcome to Scarleteen.

First thing's first, because the risk was just today, if you want to lessen the chance of pregnancy you still have time to obtain EC. It can be taken up to 120 hours after a risk (5 days) but really the closer to the risk it's taken the better. Because he doesn't know if he ejaculated, let's assume he might have, which poses a high/very high risk. Also, there's a risk of STIs as well, so if you're not both up to date with testing you'll want to do that as well.

Just checking as well, were you using a good water based lubricant? If not, that's an important part of using condoms correctly and making sure they don't break. Too? If a condom breaks during sex you want to stop, remove it (and make sure there's none left inside you) and put on a new one before continuing. That lessens the risk.

If you're having multiple condom breaks, then that's probably a sign that something is going wrong in their use. Condoms that are properly stored, unexpired, and correctly used have a very low risk of breakage.

Take a look at: Condom Basics: A User's Manual
That may help you in the future.

No, that's not true, for a few reasons.

If by "cherry," someone means the hymen, even when fully intact, the hymen cannot prevent pregnancy. Most hymens -- and all hymens of people who menstruate -- have at least micro-openings which are more than big enough for semen and sperm to get through.

But also, the hymen does not "pop" or break all at once save with injuries (even that that's unlikely). It gradually wears away over time.

It isn't possible to have a period and be pregnant, so if you get your period - and it's a normal period for you - then you can assume that you are not pregnant.
