okay, .. i don't understand something though.. do you really think the chances of pregnancy are at high risk?

even though the condom was expired, and we only did it for about 5 minutes, .. how much could possibly be relased, if any?.. and with protection on, i do not understand why there is a risk of getting pregnant.. or is there? ..

expired condom, 5 minutes of penetration, no ejaculation, possibly no pre-ejaculation.. what is the answer?

by the way, another question for the sexperts.. do you people have qualifications to make these suggestions? ... just a question =)

(Please keep replies about one topic in the same thread in the future. Makes it a lot easier to know what a poster is talking about. Thanks.)

If you didn't have any breakage or tears, you aren't likely to have had a pregnancy risk.

Per my own and the staff (and the volunteers expertise), yes, everyone here has not only read (or written) the material at the site here itself, but are educated in various other ways per sex information, and are also expected to keep very current with the information through various reliable resources so they remain current. As made clear in the registration agreement, however, no one here is a doctor nor should be used as replacement for one. Those with medical background -- such as our volunteer in med school, another in a nursing program, and the other who is a practicing nurse -- generally make that clear in their posts.

Butcha know, questions like this are actually really simple, it's just a matter of having done or doing simple research from accurate sources.

so i should be fine right? .. because there was no breakage or tears (we checked..) ..

so how safe am i? .. the only mistake we made was that it was accidently expired, but it was only about for 5 minutes anyway, so he did not ejaculate, and shouldn't have released any kidnd of fluid? .. yeah..

so i should be alright,...?

if you are worried about a pregnancy risk, then simply take a home pregnancy test. there is tons of info on the site about them so i'll leave that to you to look it up but really, the only way to know for sure is to take the test.
