So, I know this sounds a bit ridiculous, but I've been on Cerazette for three weeks now after my boyfriend and I had a scare after a condom broke (I took the MAP). Last night the condom broke again, and we didn't realise until afterwards. I've been fairly good about taking the Pill at the right time - I've mostly been taking it at almost exactly the same time, although there have been a few times where I've forgotten and taken it an hour or so later, but I'm really paranoid...Realistically, what are the chances of my being pregnant?
Secondly, I can't help but wonder whether it's really normal for the condom to break twice in about six times - I'm quite shy about talking about these things, but is there a polite way to say to someone that you think he might be putting the condom on the wrong way? I mean, it was an Extra Safe one (hah!), so it really shouldn't have broken...
Any advice would be much appreciated.

If you think he's putting it on wrong (which is pretty hard to do), try putting it on him yourself. If you are on the pill, you have a tiny weeny really slight chance, but something like 0.01% of being pregnant. You have to miss a pill at the right time of the month to release an egg. With most pills you can miss a day and it wouldn't matter. But if you are worried, don't run the packs together and have a break.

Maybe the condom is too small?
But very small chance that you're pregnant.. It's harder than people think.
I've been having unprotected sex since Dec & still nothing

With Cerazette, you can take it up to 12 hours late and it still protects you. You'll be fine!
With the condom breaking, are you sure they were in date?

Just curious, but why are you on the pill? It's just that you don't seem to believe that it prevents pregnancy...

Hardly likely at all. Most people take the pill and don't use condoms at all and still don't get pregnant. You'll be fine.

You're way too paranoid :/
It's incredibly unlikely that youre pregnant. Taking the MAP will just mess up your period now and you'll be even more paranoid. Most contraceptive pills have a 12 hour period in which you can be 'late' and they will still be effective.
