Hello doctor,

I and my partner had sex yesterday. We were using condoms but he had changed the condom three times already. On the last one, he took it out because he felt like he needed to ejaculate but it went away after he had pulled out. He then asked me to masturbate him and he ejaculated a little not even a lot. So I realized that the tip of the condom was ripped. I was scared of what if his precum went inside me. He says no but most guys does not even feel when their fluid comes out. I was ovulating last week I do not know if I should take plan b pill or not? I am also scared of the side affects.

Welcome to icliniq.com.

You are right to state that if the condom was torn, there may have been some precum gone inside the vagina and even that can make you pregnant unless your partner is absolutely sure about it.

You can choose to take the emergency contraceptive pill within 72 hours of intercourse. It would cause bleeding in the next five to seven days and may be even scanty to heavy. That should prevent any implantation and prevent fertilization by increasing the tubal motility. If you are not sure then you may consider this method of contraception. Side effects may differ in different users from headache, dizziness to nausea and delayed periods in the next cycle with heavy flow. You may choose not to use it.

Ideally speaking the chances are getting pregnant cannot be ascertained or quantified as you are not sure about the ejaculate. If you want you can wait till your next periods and if you miss them by seven days, then you can do a pregnancy test done to affirm or neglect the pregnancy. And if positive then safe termination by the medical method can be opted under specialist supervision.
