So, i'm scared about being pregnant. It's been 3 days since i've had sex with my bf. And, I started getting worried after i thought about what he said after we were done sex. I'm sure i'm just being overly paranoid and scared, but i need reassurance. BADLY! He said that it slipped off/or slipped -idk if it was slipping like, totally off or just a little- but, i was just wondering, is it possible for semen to be secondarily transferred from hand to condom? like, we had sex 3 times that night, and changed condoms inbetween and his hand could have come in contact with the wet, gooeyness of sperm on his penis, but like, can someone get pregnant from just that little bit of sperm? [Frown] I'm just really, really, really worried. Am i overreacting?

Unless his hand was covered in sperm, and unless that hand also came in direct contact with your vagina, there really isn't a pregnancy risk.

The slipping could be of concern, but really, unless the condom slipped a good distance off his penis, or rotated enough to become loose and allow sperm to be forced out the top, a little sliding isn't a huge deal.

Obviously, a lot of this has to do with the actuality of the situation. If you're still worried, you can take a pregnancy test in about 6 days.

JamsessionVT answered this questions well I just wanted to add a few things

To Prevent future scares

If a specific brand of type of condom seems to be slipping try a different type.
Also before your boyfriend withdraws make sure that one of you holds the base of the condom as he withdraws. This can help prevent slipping. <<<more info on condom use

It would also be wise for your boyfriend and you to wash yours hands after dealing with a used condom. especially if you are planning to have sex again that same night.

like jamsession said if you are still worried in a few days take a pregnancy test. That is the best way to ease your mind.
