My girlfriend and I had sex for the first time on May 5th she was a virgin. She is 18 and I am 19. Then again on the 7th. This time there was a problem with the condom. The semen came out the back of the condom. I noticed when I was taking it off that I had some on my chest. What are the odds of this causing a pregnancy?
From what we can remember her last period started anywhere from April 18-22. She is not on birth control at this time but she is planning on getting some soon.
The only symptom that might be a sign that she is pregnant is that she is having mood swings. This is common with her but she seems to think that these ones are worse then normal.

So, for future reference, it sounds like you probably put the condom on incorrectly. You need to be sure to leave around an inch of room in the tip at the bottom of your penis, okay? Here's more on how to use condoms properly: http://www.scarleteen.com/article/boyfriend/condom_basics_a_users_manual

Since it doesn't sound like the ejaculate had any contact with HER body, but only with yours, the risk would be very low.

As well, pregnancy takes around a weekish to even happen, and things like big mood changes do not happen this early in pregnancy. If she's convinced that is about pregnancy, she can take a test. It's really too early for a test, for the same reason it's too early for symptoms, but if something was actual pregnancy symptoms, then a test would be positive. If it's negative, she can be sure her mood changes are from something else.
