A Condom and Next Choice Pill... Am I in the clear?

I had my last period from July 2-July 7. On July 10th, I was with my boyfriend and he initially started having sex without a condom (maybe 20 seconds worth). I freaked out so he went and got a condom and finished everything up-the condom did not break. I still didn't want to worry about a pregnancy (from the possibility of precum) so I went and bought Next Choice and took it within 30-40 minutes after having sex. Took the second pill 12 hours after like directed in the instructions. I'm pretty sure I should be in the clear but could appreciate the confirmation from others. Thanks for all the help!

Hi Anon,

Even though we don't know if you're 100% in the clear-- you did the right thing by having him put a condom on and then taking the next choice pill. Your chances of being pregnant are slim to none. So, don't stress out about this and remember that next choice may cause a change in your period--so if this happens to you, it is normal.

Best Wishes,
