Condom leaked from the base but he pulled out. I believe I was ovulating that day I took plan B within the 48 hours. Very scared!

Condom leaked from the base but he pulled out. I believe I was ovulating that day I took plan B within the 48 hours. Very scared!

Unlikely...: If you used Plan B as prescribed during that period of time you should be fine. The failure rate is small although not as small as the regular contraceptives. In other words there is still a small chance of pregnancy so always be aware of that. Keep track of your period and if any problems follow up with PCP or GYN provider. ...Read more

Here are some. ..: What you saw might be normal resulting from vaginal natural fluid and penetration. The longer the penetration, the more it may be seen.

If a condom dosent leak or brake. Can a girl still get pregnet?

If condom doesn't break or leak can you still contract hiv while giving oral sex?

If condom doesn't break or leak can you still contract hiv while giving oral sex?

No risk at all: Even without a condom, giving oral sex carries little or no risk for HIV. One estimate, by the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, is one chance for every 10, 000 exposures, if the penile partner has HIV. That's equivalent to giving oral to infected men once daily for 27 years before transmission might occur. With a condom the risk is therefore obviously zero. You needn't worry about it. ...Read more

Condoms: Condoms are quite effective when used correctly. If you are concerned that semen leaked out of the condom or if you did not use the condom correctly then consider using plan B. Use over the counter Plan B if intercourse was within 72 hours to decrease the risk of unplanned pregnancy. Consider starting birth control as well to avoid these scares in the future ...Read more

A day ago me and my boyfriend had sex and he said that I orgasmed. There was white fluid leaking out a lot. He wore a condom. I didn't feel anything.

A day ago me and my boyfriend had sex and he said that I orgasmed. There was white fluid leaking out a lot. He wore a condom. I didn't feel anything.

I think not: If you felt nothing, then it is unlikely you had an orgasm. Honestly, men have only the faintest clue as to whether their partners have orgasms or not (I refer you to Masters & Johnson if you want more info.) Your BF probably cares about you and is hoping you enjoyed the experience, but no one in the whole world knows a woman's orgasm except that woman herself. Best wishes. ...Read more

Had sex without a condom but no semen leaked out afterwards. Does this mean he didn't ejaculate?

The realities of Sex: I am very skeptical of this situation. How do you know there was no leakage or pre-cum? And did your partner end the event without ejaculation? (that would be very unusual).

I guess the myth you may be asking about is that if you did not leak semen out of your vagina there was no ejaculation and this is a false myth. It is absolutely possible for him to have ejaculated and the semen to stay. ...Read more

My friend has been leaking white stuff she recently had sex and they didn't use a condom and he made nut. Is she pregnant? That was 3 weeks ago

My friend has been leaking white stuff she recently had sex and they didn't use a condom and he made nut. Is she pregnant? That was 3 weeks ago

Need clarification!: There is nothing in your question that makes me suspicious that your friend is pregnant but there are a lot of unknowns! If she was in mid-cycle, and had sex 3 weeks ago, perhaps her period is late and she should consider doing a pregnancy test. "Leaking white stuff" describes a discharge: she could have a vaginal infection, but this symptom does not suggest pregnancy. What is "he made nut? " ...Read more

How can you get pregnant if you are on the BCP&the male condom doesn't break or leak&he pulls out? Because no semen would get through this way.

Semen is required: Semen is required, because sperm is required. The sperm is in the semen. An egg is required also, and the egg and sperm have to both be at the same time and place.
