Tommy (a guy, of all things! lol) writes, “My girl friend had her period on May 28th. She has been exact with her periods her whole life.
On June 5th we had intercourse with a spermicidically lubricated condom. It broke towards the end of sex. However, NO ejaculation occured. I noticed the broken condomn before this could have occured and stopped.
She immediately took Next Choice within half an hour as prescribed.
Around June 12 or so she got some light bleeding. At first she thought it was her period, but now she is not completely convinced.
She has not recieved her “normal” period yet. She has recently taken 4 over the counter pregnancy tests. And then yesterday(July 13) took a blood test from her doctor. ALL NEGATIVE, but the doctor said that it is still early.
So far so good, But still NO period.
Why No period? How long can this irregularity last for? Can it be for several months?
Id also like an honest answer about a chance for pregnancy. I do understand that in theory it only takes one sperm to do the job. However, if she is pregnant that will be 2 failed forms of birth control in addition to no ejaculation. I personally think I would have a better chance in winning the lottery but the lateness of the period is making me sick to my stomach.
In conclusion, being extremely nervous and uncomfortable makes premarital sex not worth it.”

Welcome to girls land, Tommy! Though, to be truthful, I have been getting more and more questions from guys lately. If I were you, I wouldn’t be too concerned, and your girlfriend shouldn’t be too worried either. If she was pregnant, a blood test (which are highly sensitive – well, admittedly, there are a couple different kinds of blood tests, and maybe the doc was going the less sensitive route) on July 13 should have indicated the presence of hCG (the pregnancy hormone). Since you didn’t ejaculate and since you were wearing a condom (even through it broke), the only risk factor would be a very minute amount of sperm that possibly was present in any preejaculation fluid; but the chances of becoming pregnant from that are extremely small.
Taking Next Choice right away would make your probability close to 99% (based on the other information we already discussed) that she’s not pregnant. The delayed period is most likely caused by the Next Choice dose with maybe some nerves thrown in. I wouldn’t be worried at all.
Best of luck!
