I was having sex with my boyfriend last night, and as I started putting the condom on I realized it was inside out, so i flipped it back the right way and put it on anyway. I stroked him a few times before he entered me, and I am right in the middle of my period, so I figured the risk was lower anyway. Do I have a risk?

There is a slight risk from this, but it's very slight. If it makes you feel better, emergency contraception is of course an option, but with a risk as low as this I really don't see that it's necessary.

Thank you. I figured as much, but needed reassurance. [Smile] I can't handle a possible pregnancy at this moment in life,and abortion is not legal in Poland, so I'd be in a fair amount of trouble.
