So my girlfriend and i were about to have sex so i was getting a condom out and getting ready to put it on. But i was kind of rushing and i began to put it on inside out at first but then immediately turned it over and put it on right. Only the tip touched the top of the condom there was very little contact but some pre-cum did get on it but it had to be a very little amount. Now my girlfriend is 2 days late and im freaking out! Is she pregnant?? i know there are different reasons why a period can be late besides pregnancy but how long can it last before it finally comes?? what is going on??

(Some of your questions have been answered in your other thread here )

When this happens, it's really just best to get a new condom. Though, the risk should be very small from this incident.

When did this happen? If it was less than 120 hours ago, your girlfriend can take emergency contraception if she wants.

It sounds like you're having a hard time using condoms correctly and trusting them. In your other thread, an article about condoms was linked, and I suggest you go read it.

Also, have you discussed other options for birth control with your girlfriend? Is she having these same worries? If she is, she may want to look into methods to use in conjunction with condoms (such as the pill or a cervical barrier).

Also, since you seem to be having a whole lot of pregnancy worries here, I'd really encourage you to back off from all sexual activities for a while until you anxiety is under control.

it happened about 2 weeks ago i think so she cant take a emergency contraception. But the only thing im worried about is if the pre-cum had some sperm in it. I really dont know what else to do bc it seems unlikely that it could happen just from that...but i really dont know.

If it has been two weeks since the (quite low) risk, and especially if her period is late, she can take a pregnancy test.

I'm still curious if your girlfriend is as worried as you are, and if you're willing to step away from sexual activities given your level of anxiety here.
