So I need some help trying to evaluate a possible pregnancy risk. What happened was that last night my BF and I were having sex. We always use condoms, since they're the only birth control we have access to right now. Anyway, we were trying a new position and he kept slipping out. Then one time he slipped out I noticed the condom had come off, and gotten stuck in my vagina. We're pretty sure it had just barely come off, since a) he hadn't felt any difference and b) I'd seen it on him when he'd slipped out the previous time, about five seconds before. He was able to get it out just fine. He hadn't come anywhere near to ejaculating, and the tip of his penis was completely dry so we're pretty positive there wasn't any pre-cum either, so I don't think I need to be too worried, but I still want to double check whether my risk is bigger than I think it is. Would it be big enough that I should get EC? Should I be more worried about it than I am?

I'm currently in a situation where I could probably manage to acquire EC, but it would be *really* difficult to do (especially since I don't want my parents finding out I'm sexually active), so I don't want to try to mess with it unless it's pretty likely that I'd get pregnant if I didn't take any. So yeah, if there was no ejaculate and most probably no pre-cum, was there a big risk? advice/input would be much appreciated. Thanks.

Hi defineinteresting and welcome to Scarleteen,

The condom slipping off and staying in your vagina counts as a condom failure. yes, there's less risk because there was no ejaculation, but this still counts as a condom failure.

So, if you're very sure that you don't want to become pregnant and want to do everything you can to make sure that doesn't happen, taking E.C. would be the next sound step for you.

If you choose not to take E.C., or find yourself unable to access it, I'd suggest testing for pregnancy when the time comes that a test would be accurate. A pregnancy test is accurate 14 or more days after sexual activity that could lead to pregnancy.
