Could I be Pregnant

Hi there. I am a well educated 23 year old, but I still am not certain on what my chances are of being pregnant based on the following activity. If someone could fill me in how likely it is that I could be prenant I would appreciate it.

Yesterday my boyfriend and I were grinding on top of one another naked. He never penetrated me and we were using a condom. The tip of his penis was above my clitoris for most of this activity. He never orgasimed, and he didn't feel that he pre-ejeculated, but I realize he still could do so and not feel it. While thrusting upwards he felt the condom break and immediately moved moved away from me. I have been on the pill for only 4 days at that time.

Also, what is the concensus on the morning after pill as being an abortive pill versus birth control?

Dear Katty--
Thanks for your question-- Based on the information you provided it seems highly unlikely that you could be pregnant. You are on birth control (though it has only been 4 days, using a condom was very responsible of you), you used a condom (yes it broke, but your boyfriend realized it and did not go any further), there was no penetration, and no ejaculation-- all positive things for you and I would not worry about it. Continue taking your BC Pills and using a condom is you are going to have sex or any type of sexual activity for the first 2 weeks of the pill.

As far as Plan B aka The morning after pill-- it is taken the morning after having unprotected sex to avoid getting pregnant. It is effective but nothing is 100%. Plan B is NOT used to terminate pregnancy ONLY to prevent it. This means that if you had unprotected sex twice in one month, you got pregnant the first time and didn't realize it and want to take Plan B the second time, it will not work because you were already pregnant at the time of taking the pill.

I hope this helps you!
