Sperm have to reach the egg, and one sperm has to penetrate the egg, in order for you to get pregnant. Also, this usually occurs in you fallopian tubes after ovulation.

If you had un protected sex, and you stuffed a tampon in to collect the sperm, this does not prevent you from becomng pregnant. In theory, the tampon would collect fluids, including sperm, around the area that it is in the vagina. However, it is very unlikely, that if your partner has already ejaculated in you, that the tampon would collect all of the sperm, and prevent pregnancy. I suggest that if you are not pregnancy, and have your next period, that you begin to practice safe sex. This includes using a condom, spermicides, etc.

A tampon is the wrong tool for the job. It won't prevent Sexually Transmitted Infections and it probably won't prevent pregnancies either. If you're in any doubt, you should always consult your doctor. If you'd rather not go to see your normal doctor, ask at the nearest City Hospital if they have a Sexual Health clinic. Most of the places I've lived, they had a sexual health clinic one evening per week. The staff are usually very friendly, there's often free contraceptives on offer, and it's far better than taking a risk with your health!
