Four days after the end of my period, my boyfriend and I were having sex and the condom came off (I was unaware of this until after when he told me). He did not ejaculate inside me, but I am worried that I could get pregnant from the pre-ejaculate. What are the chances? Any thoughts are greatly appreciated. Thank you.
cadfael44 responded:
I have a correction - it was 3 days after the end of my period.
lovebird79 responded:
There is always a chance of pregnancy when a condom comes off.

However, your chances are much smaller than if he were to ejaculate inside you and if you were a week or so further into your cycle.

Don't worry too much about it. Know that there is a slight possibility, but don't stress because that could delay your period which will add more stress.

If you are really concerned and this happened within the last 72 hours, you can always take the morning after pill to prevent any pregnancy... but after 72 hours there's no point.
cadfael44 replied to lovebird79's response:
Thank you for your reply. It was about a week ago, so the morning after pill wouldn't be of any use. I'm not stressing, I was just more wondering what the odds of pregnancy were. I really appreciate you getting back to me.
