Dreams are not generally premonitions. Most dreams reflect our inner concerns, thoughts, and worries. It sounds like you are at least a little worried at the possibility of pregnancy, so it is very possible that your dreams are reflecting that. I doubt they are actually indications of what will happen. Remember, dreams aren't real. They are the subconscious' way of processing what goes on in our life, most of the time, so don't get too worked up about your dreams. It sounds like you were careful and have very little reason to worry.

As an aside, making your boy withdraw before coming doesn't make the sex any safer, and it might actually increase the chances of the condom breaking.

thank you for responding it helped me calm down and as for the withdrawal i had read in a previous post that it isnt safe but i made him hold the end of the condom but are you saying that its safer to just let him come inside then to make him withdraw..that scares me to let him cause i thought that was more risky.. ? let me know how u feel.. which is safer?

Thanks!

It really isn't necessary or helpful for him to pull out before he is finished. Condoms are made to handle ejaculate, so if you use them correctly there should be no problem. Just make sure he does pull out right after ejaculation, holding onto the base.

If the condom didn't break, you're probably safe. And pulling out doesn't really do a lot, whether or not one is wearing a condom. Keep using condoms, forget about pulling out, and if you're really worried, consider using another form of birth control as well.
