My girlfriend and I had sex. I went to pull out before I ejaculated and after I pulled out my sperm shot out the end of the condom. I am unsure if the condom slipped down or if it tore during sex. I pinched the tip while putting it down as I always do. Anyways, I am worried my girlfriend is pregnant. She is on birth control and is pretty good about taking it as directed. She has been on it for a year and a half. I also pulled out, but I was worried that if it tore wile I was inside her there was a chance of pre-ejaculatory fluid. This being said I had her take plan b. She took it about 1 hour to 1 hour and 15 minutes after sex. This all happened on a saturday night and she was supposed to start her period the next wednesday. It is now Friday and it hasn't happened yet. I am starting to get very worried and I figured this would be a good place to ask for help. I almost 99.9999999% sure she won't get pregnant but the fact that her period is late really has me worried. Please help and thank you in advance for all answers.
If she hadn't missed any pills, then she didn't need Plan B.
Plan B is a huge dose of artificial hormones, that can give women lots of unpleasant, hormonal side effects, & is for total emergencies only.
When combined with all of the hormone in her original, regular birth control, it's going to really mess her monthly cycle/periods up, at the very least. She may have irregular or even no bleeding for months. Everyone reacts differently. She may have hormonal symptoms for weeks, such as those she'd get if she were pregnant, or getting a period/ovulating.
You need to hold the end of the condom at the base of your penis, as you withdraw, which will stop the condom slipping off, & withdraw as soon as you ejaculate, to stop you becoming soft & it leaking.
If you want another method of protection, then why not use spermicide with the condom?
If she was on birth control pills and taking them regularly then there was NO reason to take Plan b. I dont know why people seem to think Plan b is the be all end all in birth control but in truth, it is not nearly as effective as regular routine birth control. It helps to know how each work. Plan b is a huge blast of hormones designed to delay ovulation until any sperm released into the body dies out. Birth control taken routinely prevents ovulation altogether. A woman doesnt ovulate on the Pill and if no egg is released, there can be NO baby no matter how much sperm is released into her. So now why would you take a pill to DELAY ovulation when the woman doesnt ovulate in the first place? So all those hormones in play has just altered her cycle, "periods" while on birth control are really withdrawal bleeding and since she just threw a large blast of hormones in her system, she is probably not going to bleed this cycle (it may or may not come later this month) she needs to just keep taking her routine birth control exactly as it comes in the pack no matter what her body is doing, bleeding or not bleeding, do NOT alter her birth control pill schedule, just keep taking them as they come in the pack and starting new pack when it is time. In a month, maybe two, her cycle should be back to normal. Condoms are only needed with birth control pills to prevent STDs (unless she misses pills or is on certain antibiotics and need to use condoms for back up) otherwise her regular routine pill is all the birth control she needs. So if this happens again, do NOT panic! She is covered for pregnancy as long as she hasnt missed any pills recently. DO NOT take Plan b! There is rarely a reason to take Plan b when a woman is on routine birth control pills. So NO worries, she is covered!
