I am 15 and just had sex for the first time today and he used a condom. He did not pull out…

…so I am worried of getting pregnant. I have not had my period for almost a year because I am underweight. What are my chances of getting pregnant?

First off, it’s a great idea to consider condoms  and dental dams when you’re thinking about engaging in sexual activities.

Usually with typical use of condoms, effectiveness can range from 85-98% for external or male condoms, and 78-98% for internal or female condoms.

However if condoms are being used correctly and consistently, they can help prevent pregnancy and STI transmission by up to 98%!

If you’re having the type of sex that can result in pregnancy, it may be a good idea to think about birth control options in addition to condoms. This was, condoms can help reduce the risk of STI transmission and unplanned pregnancy, and a birth control method can provide an extra defense against unplanned pregnancy.
