Hello, i had protected sex for the first time but the condom didnt seem like it stayed on right... it didnt break but it kept going up his penis (When he pulled out so we can change position) So he had to keep pulling it down to the base and when we took it off there wasnt any liquid in the little sac thing. He said it felt like it was on right but im still nervous...
Is this common/normal? Should i buy plan b? Also according to my ovulation thing i am on "high fertility"... it was our first time ever.

It's not unusual for condoms to move around a little bit, though when that happens frequently, it does usually suggest your partner may either need a different condom size, or to be sure he's putting them on properly from the start. If you aren't using additional lubricant with your condom, that can contribute to slipping like this, too.

Unless you are charting ovulation with an app that asks for a few months of basal temperatures and/or cervical mucus, please know those apps are guesses and awfully useless.

Unless the condom slipped off inside your vagina -- or wasn't used properly, like not being used for all contact -- then you can assume it was effective. I don't personally see any need for Plan B based on what you have posted here.

yeah i am charting with an app [called My Days, and it has a flower as a picture] because i do not really know how to do it. i had a feeling that they are not accurate but i thought that it is better than not charting.

okay, thank you Heather that really reassures me.

Honestly, if you're asking me, I'd say an app that provides information about fertility that can't be any more than a guess is really useless. And when it tells you things that scare you, things that might have no basis in reality? I say chuck it. Especially since you *can* chart in ways that re way more likely to give you accurate estimates: it's not like you can only do this the useless way. [Smile]

If you'd like to learn about how to chart fertility accurately, you can take a look here: Get With the Flow: All About FAM

There is also one app I know of that DOES ask for all the pertinent info needed to give accurate estimates, and that's Kindara.
