Im sorry but i need to ask somone.

I just had sex for the first time. I have polycystic ovarian syndrome(its genetic) It means i dont ovulate like normal women and i have cysts on my ovaries ( you cant catch it or anything) and they put me on the pill. well i started taking it and i forgot to take them for 3 days (they where the last row of pills, the inactive ones) and i started a new pack and ive taken them for 3 days now. Any my boyfriend used a of those ones with spemicide.

Im a paranoided person....REALLY paranoid. Please could you tell me if there is any chance i could get pregnant. Im sorry i soud ridiculous but my mind blows things up.

if he used a condom correctly, then you will be fine. you were there and you could tell better than i could whether anything went wrong with the condom

also, if you are as paranoid as you say you are, then it's a good idea to STOP having sex. Why on earth would you continue to have sex if it would only cause you so much anxiety? Sex is supposed to feel good. Worrying and panicking over pregnancy scares everytime you have sex does not feel good.

If you are going to freak out every time you do it, even when you know you did things right, then I would strongly advise that you hold off on sex until you can gain the composure to not only be ready for the act itself, but be ready for any consequences, too. Which is not to say a girl doesn't become seriously alarmed if she's pregnant on accident, but she should be able to handle the situation calmly and rationally.

By the way, we advise that you skip the use of spermicides all-together. Gumdrop Girl explains why in this thread:
