Chance of being pregnant? Condom slipped off.

Close to a month ago, my boyfriend and I had sex with a condom. When he finished, he pulled out but the condom stayed inside me. He didn't enter me again or anything and I pulled the condom out and whatever sperm was in there stayed in there. It freaked us both out so we agreed to take a pregnancy test a couple weeks later. My period has always been irregular so it hasn't helped any trying to find out if I'm actually pregnant or not. I took a test 3 weeks after the incident and it was negative. I know it is possible it's way too early to tell on a test. I haven't had my period this month which is normal but I did have one last month, the last week of June. I'm not on birth control. What are the odds that I am?

Thank you for answering and welcoming me. This incident happened shortly after my June period.

Hello Hop.b,

Welcome to the EmpowHER community and thank for asking us whether or not there is a chance you are pregnant.

Most importantly, was your last period, which occurred during the last week of June, after this incident? If so, then you did not become pregnant when the condom slipped.

Levels of hCG can be detected in urine about 12 to 14 days following conception. Conception or when the fertilized egg implants in the uterus, can take about six to 12 days. With these facts, you should test and get a reliable result if you do so at least four weeks after the event.

I hope this is helpful.
