I had sex with my partner, but the condom split, so I took Plan B (Levonelle 1500) straight after, then, the next day ( I know, it was stupid, sunshine and aocohol don't mix) we were fooling around and had no condoms so he said he would pull out, and did.

He ejaculated on my lower stomach, but cause I was pretty wet I was worried that some of the ejaculate could have gotten inside of me. I Very Carefully wiped myself down, just in case, but I was wondering if you could tell me how at risk I am, cause I don't want to take ANOTHER plan B, cause I think it would really mess up my system.
Thankyou x

I'm not sure I'm understanding the timeline here. can you fill me in more? What day was the broken condom, then the EC, then the sex with withdrawal?

The split condom was Friday.
Then withdrawal Saturday.

... I know I should have been more responsible. :/

Bragorien: we're so not in the business of lecturing here, so no worries. People make mistakes, it happens. If you want to talk through how you're feeling about yours, or want help making safer choices moving forward, we're happy to talk with you. But what we're not here to do is to chide anyone. Condom breaks are also really rare, so if you want to check in to be sure you're using them properly, we could talk about that, too.

So, given the timing, it sounds to me like you were still effectively using the EC when you did the withdrawal. Mind, in perfect use, withdrawal can potentially be as effective as 96%, so your risk may have been minimal, anyway.

Just know, though I think you already do, that this doesn't mean there weren't any STI risks.

So... There isn't sufficient risk to take EC again?
...In your opinion?

And, thankyou, Heather. : )

If your partner withdrew well before sex, both given that and the timing, then in my opinion, taking EC again isn't something I see as needed, no.

And you're welcome. [Smile]
