Hello, I am kind of worried about my girlfriend becoming pregnant. We had sex about 4 times last month. All those times I used a condom and it did not bust. Infact, I always slowly pull out, then ejaculate manualy then wash my hands. I double checked the condom to see if it broke and again it did not. Well she should be starting her cycle any day now, but she has been eating alot. Like alot more than nomral. Could this be due to stress & PMS'n?

If you used a condom correctly for all genital contact and it didn't break, slip or tear, then the risk that she's pregnant is minimal.

However, there's no need to withdraw before ejaculation if you're using a condom, and in fact doing so may increase the risk that the condom will slip or tear.

Eating a lot could indeed be due to stress or PMS - or a change in eating habits, taking more exercise than usual so needing more calories, having been eating too little previously ... and a whole bunch of other possible reasons. So it's not a reason to panic.
