my girlfriend and i were having sex and the condom broke and ended up ejaculating inside of her. She was not on birth control so we decided to get the Next Choice pills. She took these at the scheduled time. We ended up fooling around again and we decided to have sex. Not thinking the condom would break again because it never has before, it did. I ended up pulling out before ejaculating. I know you can still get pregnant from pre cum. We dont know what to do. the sex was around 7 hrs after the last next choice pill was taken. What should we do? What are the chances that she gets pregnant?

thank you

Hi,
Welcome to ehealthforum.
The emergency contraception taken previously will not give protection against pregnancy again. She can get pregnant due to the unprotected intercourse. She should consider discussing about this with her healthcare provider/gynecologist. If you intend to be sexually active, then getting her started on regular birth control measures would be better. Taking emergency contraceptives often can ruin her health and hormonal balance causing complications.
Emergency contraceptives are for ‘emergency use’, not when the ‘emergency’ tends to happen often.
Take care.
