My boyfriend and I had sex the other evening. We used a spermicidally lubricated condom, and he came. We were careful to be sure of no spillage when he removed it. He wiped off a bit before we got to lying together and "fooling around" a bit more. At some point in playing, he entered me for just a moment or two, now without a condom. He withdrew quickly (and apologized!) when I said I was scared and didn't want to risk that...But what sort of statistics am I looking at for pregnancy?

What's causing me more stress is that I have an irregular period. The last time I had one was oct. 14, so I don't even know when I can go take a hpt, as they seem to say "one week after you miss your period."...But I was already a week late when the intercourse happened!

I feel stupid for being so worried about only a few seconds of my life, but it's consuming my every thought. I googled and came up with nothing on my own. I appreciate any input you all might have.

Well let me tell ya there are so many of us here having sex every day pleading with god everymonth that we will be blessed with a baby and it takes months and months of trying for the majority of us, so I would say that the odds are in your favor.

Also a normal couple actively trying to conceive and having sex even at time of ovulation only has about a 25-30% chance of getting pregnant each cycle....

So just try to relax, take a pregnancy test after your period is due and say a little prayer. And just try to be very careful next time since you dont want to get pregnant.
