What are the odds/chance that my girlfriend is pregnant. We had protected sex with a condom and did not brake, leak or anything like that. So what are the odds/chances that she is pregnant?

I didn't realy get the answer i was looking for when i was looking around the site.

Why not check out this article?

Condoms are pretty darn effective ... Even more so when used w/ lubrication and when they don't break or tear. So take a deep breath ... and relax

From our handy Risk Assessment Chart:


Did you correctly use a condom (putting the condom on before any contact between the penis and vaginal area, holding onto the base of the condom during withdrawal, and removing the condom with the penis well away from the vaginal area) for penis-in-vagina intercourse?

If you DID USE A CONDOM, then you have a LOW RISK of pregnancy.

If your girlfriend is on the pill, your chances are even lower.

However, if you want absolute guarantees, you're not going to get them. To quote from our Readiness Checklist:


There is no sex, save masturbation -- no matter how long you and your partner have known each other, or what you have convinced yourself of -- that does not carry some risks, no matter how safe you play it.

Being able to deal with that is part of being mature enough to have sex in the first place.
