The other day I was having (protected) sex with my partner. We had only been doing it for a few minutes and, actually, he had pulled out. However, at one point we looked down and the condom had fallen off. It was next to us, it didn't slip inside of me. He hadn't ejaculated and we're not even sure when it fell off (it might have fallen off after he pulled out). I jokingly asked him: 'no chances of pregnancy, right?' And he told me not to worry (like I said, he hadn't ejaculated).
I know my chances of pregnancy are low, but I realized later that I was probably ovulating that day and now I'm starting to worry. I'm kind of regretting not taking emergency contraception, but at the time I thought the chances were really low, since he hadn't ejaculated and the condom might have slipped off after he pulled out . However, what are the chances of pregnancy there? This is a new relationship and I'm seriously starting to worry.

Hello and welcome to EHF !

I went through your query and i understand your concern . Withdrawal method has its own failure rate. Suspected contraceptive failure has its own failure rate. So it would be better to try emergency contraception within 72 to 96 hours . Although the chances of pregnancy are negligible.

Take care
