Hi, i am a little worried if i should be taking EC.My boyfriend and i had protected sex but when he withdrawn i noticed that the condom rolled down the shaft and it was just covering the tip of his penis. Im not sure if that is considered a condom failure? And the EC has pretty nasty side effects to my body so i would prefer not to take it. Help?

If the condom stayed on, nope, it was not a failure.

But for future referencesounds like you need to remind your partner that when withdrawing. He needs to hold the base of the condom. Obviously, it could have slipped off easily this time, you just got lucky.
