So, hopefully this won't qualify as an emergency and I'm being paranoid, but here it is. My boyfriend and I were having sex on wednesday and when he pulled out for us to change positions, the condom was left inside me. Of course, I immediately pulled it out. He hadn't orgasmed, he said he wasn't even close, we were using spermicidal condoms, and I'm on the pill (seasonique, a form of seasonale). I know my chances of getting pregnant from this are slim to none, but I am an anxious person by nature and am naturally a little worried about this. What are my chances of getting pregnant from this? Do I need a morning after pill or something? And what can we do to prevent this in the future? Thanks! Sorry if I'm wasting your time being paranoid.

As long as you have been taking your pill correctly and not doing anything that would interfere with it...you should be protected.
In terms of the condom, there are several suggestions that might help. First off, ditch the spermicidal condoms and get some regular/lubricated ones. There's not enough spermicide on them to kill much of anything, but there is enough to irritate your tissues and be generally unhealthy for your vagina. Secondly, if you are not using extra lube, invest in some water-based, condom-safe lube (like KY liquid or Astroglide, for example). No matter how well you naturally lubricate, it's really not designed to stand up to latex. Third, check the fit on the condoms you are using. The ring size may be a bit big, which could contribute to the problem. And finally, someone needs to be firmly holding the rim when your partner pulls out fully. If somebody is hanging on (doesn't matter who it is), then you'll be sure that it doesn't slip off.
