Hi pears,
Thank you for your question and for joining EmpowHER. You used a condom, so this will decrease your chances of getting pregnant. If you suspect there may have been some leakage, you can elect to get Plan B or Next Choice from your local pharmacy. It can be expensive, but it is designed for cases just like this. It is most effective when taken within 72 hours of your sexual event. If it is too late for that, then be sure you don't put yourself at further risk for pregnancy this month, and wait for your next period. It is likely you are not pregnant, but there would be a small chance if you had leakage. When used correctly, condoms are 98% effective at preventing pregnancy.
For more information, please review this article: Help! The Condom Broke During Sex: How to Prevent "Wardrobe Malfunctions". And in case you get emergency contraception, check this out, so you know what to expect: Emergency Contraception Update, 2010.
Good luck, and let us know how you're doing.

Hi Pears,

If you got your period days after having sex-- then you are not pregnant. So lucky you, you actually had your scare soon before your period was due. If your boyfriend holds on to the top of the condom prior to pulling out next time, you may avoid this scare.

Best Wishes!
