Me and my girlfriend had sex a week ago and I wore a condom but It broke, I'm not sure how far into sex it broke but we carried on for about 5-6 minutes before we noticed. I did not ejaculate in her but we're scared about "pre-cum". Maybe about 5-8 hours later she took "Plan B one-step" so we caught it early. But a week later she got some "spotting" as they call it or pre-menstrual bleeding and I know that can be a sign of pregnancy in its early stages. Please someone give me some advice!! Or your thoughts or input!!! Or just something please!!!!!!!!

You're very worried and that's understandable and so is she.

There is a risk but it would be very low on just a one time encounter and only 5 or 6 minutes of sex to deliver the precum out of the condom and inside her with enough sperm to make her pregnant. Most of the hundreds of millions of sperm in a full and unprotected ejaculation do not make it to reach the egg. Precum has far fewer sperm in it than a full ejaculation. Most sperm from your small amount of precum would likely die immediately due to her internal PH and other obstacles inside her body or be blocked long before reaching her egg, even if the timing was ideal for her to release an egg in the necessary time period to be fertilized by the few sperms you had in your precum and within the life span of those sperm once they get inside her body.

Did your condom have any spermicide inside of it as some brands do? Did she use any spermicide inside her at the time? Those can be a very helpful second line of defense if a condom breaks.

Where was the break in the condom? The very tip or somewhere else? That makes some difference on how likely the precum was to get out of the very tip where it most likely was inside the condom and into her in any significant amounts. A break farther down the condom shaft on a tight fitting condom would be less likely to leak out precum than a break at the tip where your precum would be leaving your penis and gathering inside the condom.

It is possible to get pregnant from precum alone, but unless you put out a very large amount of precum, its a low risk. So much lower of a risk of pregnancy than from an ejaculation.

You could telephone a clinic that serves pregnancy and sexual concerns such as Planned Parenthood, your local county health department, toll free pregnancy help lines listed on the internet, your school nurse, or a similar organization for more detailed info.

But remember, even unprotected sex with full ejaculation does not lead to pregnancy in most cases. A wait and see and maybe home pregnancy tests might be the best thing to do for now. The Plan B would normally have had some effect too.

Don't worry yourselves sick over a very small risk of this until you know more and get more reliable info from medical professionals.

Good luck.

Thank you very much for your help. She got her period the other day so we now have nothing to worry about. Thanks again!

Thanks for letting current and future readers on here know how it turned out. There will be other couples in the same situation in the future reading this post.

I'm glad to hear its all OK now.

I'd get some serious birth control as soon as possible to prevent having to go through all that worry again. Try a few different methods using both birth control and use barrier methods for STD safety. Then use them all the time such as condoms, spermicide, and some form of female birth control, and use them all at once to be sure neither of you have to suffer a scare again.

Good Luck.
