In the wee hours of this morning around 3 am, my boyfriend and I were having sex. We used a lubricated condom but didnt have any extra lubricant. Unfortunaely after he ejaculated, we realized that the condom broke. I'm currently not using any other form of birth control. I'm sure it was due to the fact that the condom dried up rather quickly. We used a condom by the brand of Elite. Does anyone know anything about that brand? I want to obtain ECP because I do not wish to become pregnant. Tomorrow is Memorial Day and I was wondering if any Planned Parenthood clinics would be open. If not is it still possible to go to one early Tuesday morning? Thanks for your help in advance!

There are Durex Elite condoms, but I think those are in the UK only. In future, try to use only reputable brands of condoms. Of all the things you should try to save money on, safer sex isn't one of them.

I don't know whether PP is open or not tomorrow, but if it isn't, you should be able to get EC at emergency rooms, or urgent care clinics. There's also a list here that might be helpful.

Thanks for the reply Milke. As for the brand condom he used, I didn't buy it...he already has those. I absolutely refuse to use that brand of condoms anymore so I'm going to Rite Aid to buy me a pack of Durex condoms and some Astroglide. People don't realize the wonders Astroglide can do for u....its a great thing.
Also, I went and got the ECP today and I took the first dose at 6:15 but I was so worried about the situation, I forgot to ask her if it's ok to take anti-nausea medicine an hour before the second dose? Because I took anti-nausea medicine an hour before the first dose since she said it would help reduce nausea and/or vomiting. It helped a great deal because I feel just fine. Thanks for your help in advance!
