What can she do to help prevent the pregnancy?

User Profile
I had protected sex last night until the condom slipped off. We were about 5 minute into it, before it happened. When it did we stopped immediately after. I want to know how big is the chance that she could be pregnant? What can she do to help prevent the pregnancy?

Hi,
Welcome to ehealthforum,
If semen or pre-cum has come in contact with vagina, the chances of pregnancy are possible (especially if she was during her fertile days or close to her ovulation time at the time of your sexual contact/intercourse). If not ready for pregnancy, she can consider taking emergency contraception within 24-48 hours of the unprotected sexual contact/intercourse to prevent pregnancy (avoid further unprotected sexual contact). Wait and watch for her periods. Look out for development of any new symptoms if pregnancy is suspected. She should visit her doctor/gynecologist for further evaluation and assistance if she does not get her periods within 10 days of expected period dates, or if she gets abnormal bleeding. If pregnancy gets ruled out and if you are not ready for pregnancy, but intend to remain sexually active, you should consider getting her started on suitable regular birth control measures to be protected (after her periods). She should be regular with birth control use as instructed. Avoid having unprotected sexual contact if you are not ready for pregnancy.
Take care.
