    I had sex for the first time, but I'm not on the pill or taken the morning after pill yet. We did use a condom the whole time, but I'm still worried about the possibility of pregnancy. Am I worrying too much? I just need some advice really, my period is due within the next week. thanks.

    If you used a condom and it was on correctly etc. then the possibilities of you being pregnant are extremely, extremely slim.

    Did the condom break? If so, you have a cause for worry. If it didn't break, then your worry is slightly more unjustified, as the chances of you being pregnant are incredibly slim. I think it's something like a 94-96% chance that you are not pregnant if it didn't break.

    If the condom didn't break or rip then you're fine. They only say that they're ~99% effective cos that 1% or so, is for when they rip or come off, not because cum magically gets through the rubber.

    It's more than that. If it didn't break and was put on properly then it's more or less 100%.

    For legal purposes, Condoms are only 99.9% effective.

    Which is why I said more or less 100%.

    Yes but you are putting it through as if it is 100% when it is not.

    My little theory is that they are at least 99.99999999999999999999999999999 99999999% effective (can never quite say never) but maybe the quoted figure is lower because people lie.

    No i'm not. It's only fear of being sued that makes it 99.9%.

    Don't worry, I've been using only condoms for the last couple of months with no failure.

    I think that's if you use condoms regularly for a year (ie. not from just one encounter, but from many), and the percentage is higher than that.
    True, but I would never just rely on condoms. They're just not reliable. If they don't break, they're almost flawless, but if they do break, then the chances of pregnancy as pretty high.

    That's what the morning after pill is for surely?

    I think everyone worries about that kind of thing the first time round but you have nothing to worry about if you used a condom
