My friend and I have entered a physical relationship... We had sex today with condoms however I am no longer on birth control. I'm debating if I need to purchase plan B or not since he did ejaculate inside of me (wearing the condom of course) ..... I'm worried none the less. I think my last cycle was August 10th-August 17th..(I know it ended on the 17th) I think the reason I'm nervous is because I might be in my ovulation stage of my cycle.. thanks for reading!! Any help would be appreciated. [ 08-24-2012, 01:01 AM: Message edited by: cupcakedoll ]

So, you used a condom for all genital contact and it did not break or slip off?
If so, you used a very effective method of birth control to protect yourself. Taking Plan B would not do much to increase that protection for you, as the effectiveness rate of Plan B is lower as that of the condom. If you don't feel comfortable using condoms alone, we can talk about your options for doubling up with a second method in the future. Would you be interested in that?

That is correct, we did use a condom for all genital contact. It did not slip or tear however next time we are planning to use lube so there's no friction. Thank you so much, I was fretting since I usually take double protection (pills and condom) and I have a tendency to worry about things as such. I would love to talk about double protection; I used to use it all the time, however now that I live alone and supporting myself I can't afford the pill : ( Thank you once again!

Hi cupcakedoll! Firstly, have you read this article?
The Buddy System: Effectiveness Rates for Backing Up Your Birth Control With a Second Method It has information on various pairings of contraception you can use, and the effectiveness rate of each pairing! Do any of those pairings sound like they are doable/affordable for you? For more detailed information on each individual type of birth control and which ones might work best for you, you can go through this article: which helps you figure out which type(s) of contraception would be the best fit for you.
