Hello, I would be happy to help you with your question.

Since you had intercourse with a condom AND she took emergency contraception then the chance of pregnancy with the first episode is extremely small. Emergency contraception has the tendency to cause delayed ovulation and irregular bleeding. The second episode of intercourse was likewise protected from pregnancy with emergency contraception and she is having the added effet of irregular bleeding from intermittent use of hormones. While the chance of pregnancy is extremely small, you guys need to start using condoms and check a pregnancy test weekly until you are 3 weeks out from the last episode of unprotected intercourse. Emergency contraception is not 100% effective and is NOT an ideal form of birth control.
