My boyfriend and I were having sex and he had told me he had ejaculated. He was wearing a condom and he had asked to keep going. After he had pulled out I had notice the condom rolled up slightly and the base of his penis looked moist. We didn’t know for sure if it was from him or me so I had taken emergency contraception just to be safe. Considering the moistness didn’t seem like it could’ve gotten into my vagina, he used a condom, and i had taken EC, do you think I could still get pregnant?

It is possible but unlikely. Taking emergency contraception right away was a really smart idea  — that reduced your chance of pregnancy by a lot. It sounds like it’s possible that some sperm leaked out of the condom and into your vagina. In the future, it’s always a good idea for the guy to pull out and take the condom off after he ejaculates. That’s because the penis goes soft after ejaculation, which makes it harder for the condom to stay on  — and really easy for semen to leak out.

Emergency contraception is more effective the sooner you take it. You can click here to learn more about how effective emergency contraception is and how it works.
