Dear Scarleteen,

I was having sex with my girlfriend using a condom. However, when I was pulling it out, the semen had dripped onto her vagina,. Is there be a possibility for her being pregnant from this?

Hi archangel! Yes, your girlfriend has a HIGH to VERY HIGH risk of pregnancy according to this flowchart (you may want to check it out yourself):-
http://www.scarleteen.com/reproduction/preg_risk.html

If it is less than 72 hours since you had sex, please make sure your girlfriend takes an ECP (emergency contraception pill) 'morning after pill'. These are available from Planned Parenthood or a doctor.

If it was longer than 3 days since the risk occured, your girlfriend needs to take a pregnancy test. Your girlfriend has an STD risk, so make sure she gets tested. To make sure you don't have any accidents with condom use again, please read this: http://www.scarleteen.com/infection/condom.html

Good luck!

Just to clarify: a pregnancy test will not give accurate results until 10-14 days after the incident in question or the first missed day or her period, whichever comes sooner.

I'm not sure from your post whether the condom broke or semen leaked out as you were pulling out, but you might find it useful to check out A Simple Condom Primer for future reference.

Dear Scarlet,

I hope you didn't get my note wrong though, I was pulling out the condom from my penis when Im had already outside of her and my semen had dripped onto her vagina from the condom. So what is the risk of pregnancy??

Im sorry for the confusion.

Hello,
The risk of pregnancy is the same as previously stated (very high!) It does not matter whether you're inside of her or not--if semen or pre-ejaculate comes in contact with the vulva, there's a very high risk of pregnancy. So if possible, get emergency contraception as quickly as possible!
