Pregnancy (Definition)

I have protective sex every time but before doing it, it goes in for 10 secs or so without one. Can I still get pregnant? Condom is never broken. Safe?

I have protective sex every time but before doing it, it goes in for 10 secs or so without one. Can I still get pregnant? Condom is never broken. Safe?

Not safe: Any act of penetration, even for a second, can cause a pregnancy. And I typically advise my patients that there are no 'safe' days in a cycle. If you aren't ready to become a parent, then it's best to use 2 methods of birth control. Condoms prevent pregnancy about 70% of the time, so over the course of a year, 30 couples using condoms will become pregnant. Not great odds if you're not ready. ...Read more

What is the best and safe way to prevent pregnancy without using condoms?

What is the best and safe way to prevent pregnancy without using condoms?

Abstinence: The safest and "best" way to prevent pregnancy is not to have sex at all - abstinence. If you're having sex, and want to prevent pregnancy, condoms are ideal because when used correctly, they prevent both pregnancy and STDs. Aside from that, your female partner can try some form of birth control - like pill or IUD. But these do not prevent STDs. They're all about 99% effective when used correctly. ...Read more

I had sex and used a condom, I took Plan B the next day to be safe, then found the condom inside me. Could I be pregnant? I had sex on saturday took the Plan B on sunday and then found the condom on tuesday.

Plan: Plan b is very effective to prevent pregnancy in the manner that you took it and that will affect the way you ovulate and have implantation. So the sperm will play no role on this, the effect of the medication is on you. Therefore what happened to you will not change its effectiveness. Hope this helps. ...Read more

Had sex with condom on and checked for leaks it was clear am I safe from pregnancy?

Pregnancy unlikely: People who have sex while always using condoms properly do not get pregnant except very rarely, regardless of what else is happening in life. In the US, condoms are used one time each and are presumed intact, so we do not need to check for leaks. If worried, one can do a home pregnancy test 3 weeks after sex. Tests are very accurate, inexpensive to buy, and are sold in stores everywhere. ...Read more

Are birth control and condoms together a safe enough option to avoid pregnancy or do I need to do more?

Are birth control and condoms together a safe enough option to avoid pregnancy or do I need to do more?

Safe enough...: There is a 20% per year chance of pregnancy with condoms and a 5% chance per year with birth-control pills. Together, you have about a 1% chance of pregnancy per year. That is pretty low but it isn't zero. If you want a lower risk, you might consider abstinence. Its only failed once in history. Best wishes! ...Read more

How to get pregnant using male condom by having safe sex without getting HIV to myself and my husband and child after 2 weeks of ovulating?

How to get pregnant using male condom by having safe sex without getting HIV to myself and my husband and child after 2 weeks of ovulating?

Confusing: If your male partner is not on treatment and has a detectable viral load then the sperm can be washed and you can be inseminated with non-infectious sperm. The sperm would not come from a condom. If he is on treatment and undetectable you cannot contract HIV from him. I don't understand what a condom has to do with this situation. ...Read more

Negative: You're very close, of course, to getting your next cycle. If you're pregnancy test is negative today and last encounter was 3/7, then likely you're not pregnant, but for 100% certainty, can wait about 5 more days (assuming no period) and take another test. Best of luck. ...Read more

I had sex a week ago he was using protection, but when we finished the condom was just sitting on top and I had only come off my monthly cycle the previous day could I be pregnant or would the condom of been safe?

Hard to say: The wording in your question is difficult to follow. You say the condom was off and it is not clear whether you mean it was off during intercourse. If so, there is a low but real risk. Condoms should be applied before any contact and intercourse should stop if the male begins to soften and the condom slips. Shopping for a better fit would be advised. ...Read more

Hello!! I had my period about 5 days earlier than usual and it lasted 4 instead of 7. Always safe sex (condom). Could it be pregnancy?

Very unlikely: If you did not have unprotected sex since your last period, you are highly unlikely to be pregnant.
For good health - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually. Do not use tobacco, alcohol, weed or street drugs in any form.

I am on the pill but do not take it at the same time everyday. When I have sex I always use a condom. Am I safe enough not to get pregnant?

Yes: Slight variation in the time of day that you take the pill will not make a big difference in its effectiveness, but you might experience some breakthrough bleeding. If you cannot take the pill at the same time every day, though, universal use of the condoms is a great idea and lowers the chance of pregnancy to almost zero. ...Read more
