Question: should i be worried?

 evanje - Wed Nov 02, 2005 10:30 pm

my boyfriend and I had sex for the first time, and we used a condom. He pulled out before he ejaculated. Should I be worried about pregnancy? How do I know if the condom broke during sex?
Also, if he loses his erection while wearing the condom during intercourse, not while putting it on, do we have to change the condom?
(sorry for so many questions)

User avatar After sex, you should squeeze the tip of the condom to make sure that no semen comes out. Then you can be sure the condom hasn't leaked.

If he loses an erection during intercourse, you should change condoms, just because regaining the erection may not position the condom properly, and it may slip off.

Make sure after intercourse, when he withdrawls his penis, he holds on to the condom to make sure it does not slip off inside you. He should always withdraw right after intercourse, while still erect, so the condom does not fall off.

If the condom was used properly, there should not be any worry of pregnancy, although nothing works 100%.
