My girlfriend and I were having protected sex, I ejaculated into the condom, we replaced the condom with a new one and continued to have sex.

When I was taking the condom off, obviously I had a combination of fluids on my hand from the condom (her fluids, mine, the lubrication from the condom, etc.) After we tried to have sex after I ejaculated, we both realized that my "equipment" was not going to be operational for a while. We tried for about 10 minutes. So we decided to engage in manual stimulation i.e. I fingered her.

She is on the pill but she did miss her pill the day before this incident. She has made it up and is back on schedule and has a very regular period.

Is it possible that the fluids on my hands may have contained sperm and my finger penetrating her may have impregnated her?

I guess my next question is should she take the morning after pill? We are within the 72 hour range yet and I don't want to be late.

Thank you

How long as she been taking the pill? If she's been taking it for a few months or more, and has been very good about taking each pill on time, than 1 missed pill will not affect her protection, and EC would not be necessary, regadless of whether ejaculate got onto your hand.

Depending on the answer to the above question, you really don't have a pregnancy risk; unless you dumped the contents of the condom onto your hand, the fact that you took it off wouldn't matter too much here.

I think she's been on the pill for a number of years now but that still hasn't stopped her from worrying, and her worrying has gotten me worried so we were just looking for some answers. It was scary because I seemed to know more about her pills than she did and I don't know much of anything AT ALL [Smile]

Regardless, we've gotten all kinds of advice from all sorts of people and no one has suggested EC. Not even you guys at Scarlet and I've never been steered wrong here!

Thank you guys so much! You really do a great job. We undereducated, inexperienced, overly hormonal newbies at sex REALLY appreciate all the work that you do for us.

Thanks again,
