Hello and thanks for your query.

I shall make an effort to provide you with good professional recommendations specific to your questions.

If you want to know if she is pregnant, the first would be a pregnancy test (urine test on a strip) that she would have to perform. She will have to get this test done if she has a missed period. If the test comes negative then a repeat test after 2-4 weeks would be needed to confirm pregnancy. This is preliminary. Of course a clinical examination later will be confirmatory.

The chances of one getting pregnant, depends on factors with the individual medical history, the act etc. Rupture of a barrier contraceptive like condom is the same as the chances with unprotected intercourse. And the amount of semen has no bearing relationship with fertility. Even a small amount of normal semen is enough for the purpose in the right conditions.

Yet again, I duly appreciate your query to me, I do hope that you have found something useful to help you and I shall be glad to answer any further apprehensions.

Sincerely,
