So me and my boyfriend had sex twice on June 16th. The first time we used a spermicidal condom and he ejaculated we waited a bit and we had sex again with another spermicidal condom but it broke, and we stopped as soon as we noticed, but he didn't ejaculate before it had broken. What are the chances I could be pregnant? I'm really worried because my period isn't regular yet and it's normal for me to miss it. How long should I wait to take a test?

So without ejaculation, the chances of pregnancy aren't none, but they're much lower than if your partner had ejaculated. It's too late now for emergency contraception (the morning after pill) so all you can do is wait to take a test: for the most accurate result, you'll want to wait until it's been at least two weeks since your risk.

Did you want to talk about using condoms correctly to ensure they don't break? With proper use, it's actually very rare for condoms to break, and there are a couple things you can do to help ensure that doesn't happen - happy to go over that with you if you like.

Thank you, I can relax a little with you saying it's low.

I would like to go over that actually, because I never thought it'd break, I don't know what we did wrong. Any help would mean so much and make the next time a lot less scary.

Thank you! That seemed to help! I think we need to use more lubrication and that's why it broke, even though the brand we used seemed to have quite a lot already on it, but I'll definitely try putting some inside and using extra.
