Hi, I am in the middle of my period and i had anal sex with my boyfriend. As he pulled out to cum the condom broke but he wasn't inside me when he came. I had a tampon in and i cleaned the area right after. I also had a tampon in. Could i be pregnant?

Hi Anon,

Welcome to EmpowHER.  If you were on your period or had anal sex. You can not get pregnant.   A woman can only get pregnant while she ovulates.  Which for most women it occurs between day 11-21 of a cycle. Counting from the first day of your period.  Once release from the ovary, an egg can live up to 24 hours.
