…Then after she decided to get on birth control and she got the ring. Six days later we had sex again with a condom with spermicide in it and the condom broke. (I did not ejaculate but it still broke). I am really worried about this and I was wondering if you could give me an idea if she is pregnant or not.
First of all, good for you! You’re doing all the right things to make sure your girlfriend doesn’t get pregnant—supporting her in choosing a reliable birth control method, using condoms, and asking for medical advice. However, it’s hard to say whether or not she is pregnant. The best way to know is to take a test. Pregnancy tests are accurate 14 days after unprotected sex, and are available at most pharmacies and grocery stores. Your girlfriend can also make an appointment at Teen Clinic for a pregnancy test by calling 303-442-5160. If you and your girlfriend have questions about how the ring works, it might be helpful to come talk to one of our medical practitioners; understanding your birth control will help put your mind at ease. And keep using condoms! A hormonal method plus condom use is a great way to reduce the risk of unintended pregnancy.
