Hi,

I have already read the article on pregnancy risks, but I had a question on just how big that risk is...
My boyfriend and I were having sex, we are usually very cautious because currently our only method of birth control is male condoms. Tonight, I did not hold onto the base of the condom when he pulled out, and the condom came with me.

I am aware that this does pose a risk of pregnancy, but I wanted to ask if in your opinion it would be wise to take Plan B as a precaution. The condom seemed completely in place and I am at the end of my cycle (should be starting my period soon). Just asking for a piece of mind...
Thank-you in advance!

So, did the condom come off and/or did the contents spill? If ejaculate spilled on or around your vulva, then yes, you may want to consider taking EC.

The condom came off of him, but was still in me. I know some of it spilled on him...but I am not sure, I don't think, any of it spilled onto me.

A condom coming off entirely is considered a condom failure; there's no way to know for sure if semen came in contact with you directly, but once a condom comes off inside someone's body, there is a risk of that direct exposure. So it's really up to you how comfortable you are with a potential risk here.
