About two weeks ago I had sex with a guy, and during the sex, the condom apparently broke. We took it off and replaced it with another one. He didn't finish at any point in the night (thus no ejaculation), but we did have intercourse.
I was supposed to get my period yesterday, and I'm usually pretty regular. I won't have the money to buy the test for another few days, and I know that nothing is going to offer me peace of mind like my period or like a negative test result will.
I was just wondering about your opinion on this matter.

If he didn't ejaculate then this would mean he used the withdrawal method of birth control. This method is 96% effective with perfect use and 73% effective with typical use. Combined with using a condom, then it's 95.95% effective with typical use.
The fact that your period is a day late is no need to worry. Even regular girls can have it vary slightly by a day or two at times. Stress can also push it back, along with a change in diet and exercise habits.
It sounds to me like you have very minimal risk for pregnancy. However, since the condom did break there is a risk of transmitting STI's. Before becoming sexual with a partner it's a good habit to both get tested for STI's, even if you plan on using latex barriers, just in case.

To reassure you, Natalie is correct. The chance of pregnancy is, at best, minimal since he didnít ejaculate; plus he replaced the condom before making contact again. Because you are sexually active, for your own peace of mind and safety, you should consider some form of more reliable birth control and routine STI testing if you havenít already.
