I had sex for the first time this weekend, there was a condom and it didnt split, nothing spilled out. However we only put it on just before intercourse, and fooled around a lot before without clothes. This was just before my period was due, and I'm still waiting for it. This may be the wrong forum to post this in.

I'm just scared of being pregant

When we fooled around he didnt have a condom on, and he might have gotton some precum on my vulva, he's not sure.

I'm missing my period, this is probably because of the fact I'm so worried that I can't eat or sleep. I manage to faint from this, I don't know where to turn to or who to turn to, please help me, please?

For starters you have 72 hours before emergency contraception is no longer an option, so if it has been less than 72 hours since you last had sex then I would get some, this will kill any sperm and would relieve your worries. Other than that you can take a pregnancy test or just wait till you start your period. But if you want to know if you are ok right away I would try the EC or pregnancy test.

Wrong. It's effective up to 120 hours after the incident. So you still have time at four days.

Not sure if your risk here warrants it, though. I'll leave that to a mod to advise on.

I had sex on Saturday, so will it be okay if I bought it tomorrow just before the 120 hour time period?

It's effective up to 120 hours after the risk, but the sooner you get it, the more effective it can be.

In short, dont wait ... Get it as soon as possible.
