I had just taken the first pill of a new packet the previous night then we had sex the next day. The condom broke, so I made him stop long before he was close to ejaculating. A little while later, he entered me again, but only for a few moments because I was sore from the first time. Even though it's unlikely, could I be pregnant? It might be a stupid question, but of course I'm concerned.
Was this the first birth control pill you have ever taken or have you been on it for a while and are just starting a new pack? If you just started birth control and you havent been on them for at least seven consecutive days, then yes, there is a possibility for pregnancy. Men pulling our prior to ejaculation does little to nothing to prevent pregnancy. This is a myth-an old one at that, I cant for the life of me understand why girls of today still believe this is true. Men secrete sperm long before they ejaculate, granted, the majority are released during ejaculation, but it only takes the release of one to get you pregnant. Men secrete tiny amounts of sperm all through the sex act and they are unable to feel or control this release. Any time a male enters your vagina naked there is a chance for pregnancy. I know of many women who wound up pregnant when their partners entered for a "few strokes" prior to putting on condoms so it does happen. If you just started birth control pills and this was your first pill then you should take Plan b or some other kind of emergency contraceptive pill because one pill will not protect you from pregnancy. Now if you were just starting a new pack and you have been on birth control pills longer than seven days without a missed pill, then no worries, you were protected. Once you have taken the Pill long enough for it to be working, then the only reason to use condoms, other than as back up for missed pills, is to protect against STDs. Once you are established on the Pill you dont have to use condoms if you feel your partner is disease free or if you are in a close monogamous relationship. Then, you only need a condom for back up when you miss a pill or if you are on antibiotics since antibiotics can reduce effectiveness of the Pill.
