Exclamation A little worried...

Ok, well my girlfriend and I had sex today (friday) and used a condom. She's not on the pill or anything and she told me she's due for her period this Sunday. I didnt ejaculate inside her and the condom didnt seem to be broken (I checked it afterwards to make sure). I never penetrated without the condom on, so chances are shes not pregnant.. i think anyway. I need some reassurance; we sort of fooled around after that, just minor touching i guess, but im not sure if my fingers could have had small amounts of precum on them. I highly doubt they did, but what are the odds shes pregnant? I just need some opinions i guess, thanks!

Re: A little worried...

The odds are very slim. Most condoms are up to 99% effective. Of course I'm sure you learned that the only 100% way to avoid pregnancy and STDs is to abstain from sex, meaning don't have sex. So, there's always a slight risk, and if you're going to have sex, it's best to just be prepared for the consequences. If you're stressing out a lot all the time over it, is it really worth it? And, are you sure you're ready? Just some thoughts to consider, but I don't think you have much to worry about here. Keep in mind that a woman's cycle isn't an exact science either, so just because you expect it one day doesn't mean you'll get it that day. Continue to use condoms, and it would probably be a good idea for your girlfriend to get on some form of birth control like the pill or patch. Since she's now sexually active, she should have yearly exams "down there" anyway, all women are supposed to. Then the doctor can talk to her about birth control. If you use both condoms and a birth control method, the risk of pregnancy is lowered even more. Using both condoms and birth control, there's not much more protection you can do, other than abstain of course. So, suggest your girlfriend see a doctor about prescription birth control.
