My girlfriend and I engaged in some sexual activities two Saturdays ago. If it helps with more information it was our 3rd time having an orgasm in about 12 hours. I know by the end of the story that may be irrelevant but I heard there's less sperm in that short of time. Anyway my condom broke right at the end after I ejaculated in her. Now my girlfriend hasnt missed a bc pill in over a year. She told me she's never been late or anything. She was on her like 13th or 14th pill that day. We were both scared and paranoid so she took plan b about 4 hours after the incident. I know no amount of contraception is 100% effective but should we be worried? Her period should happen in 2 to 4 days. We're just both so stressed.

The birth control pill is around 99% effective in perfect use and 91% effective in typical use. So, for someone who takes their pill properly, the risk of pregnancy is very, very slim. Only around one in every 2000 perfect pill users each year will become pregnant.
