My boyfriend and I had sex the other night and we think that the condom may have slipped off. Just to be sure, I went to the clinic and took the morning after pill. Is there anything else I can &/or should do to make sure I don't get pregnant? And should I wait until I get my period before I have sex again?

Very wise of you to be diligent about this. First for using condoms and second for takign care of your health by going to a clinic for emergency contraception when you though the condom slipped during sexual intercourse.

When taken correctly emergency contraception is highly efffective. In the future, I suggest that you continue to be diligent about using condoms and use a second method of birth control as a back up if you aren't already using one (such as birth control pills or diaphram).

You can have sexual intercourse as long as you are protected. Otherwise, you are taking a big risk. However, if you want to have some peace of mind about your recent condom incident you can wait until you get your period before resuming sexual activities.
