Condom Breakage

 
What should I do if the condom breaks or slips off?
Make sure to remove the broken or lost condom by feeling around with your fingers, hooking a finger onto the latex, and pulling it out. You may need to see a doctor or nurse for removal if you cannot do so yourself. If you are not on birth control and want to decrease your changes of becoming pregnancy at that time, you should also get emergency contraception as soon as possible. Emergency Contraception or "The Morning After Pill" is about 84% effective at preventing pregnancy when taken up to 72 hours after unprotected sex. Finally, get tested for Sexually Transmitted Infections if you feel you may be at risk.
