Pregnant even using condoms

Iam married for 7 months. Me and my husband have decided not to have children for 2 years due to some commitments and we were using condoms for this. But last month i did not get my periods. My periods was supposed to come on 25th of August but still it has not come. Is there any chance that iam pregnant, If it is yes, even using condoms can i get pregnant?

As pointed out in the above post , Condoms do not offer 100% protection against pregnancy. There is a good chance that you are pregnant  this time if your periods have been regular all these years . Take a urine pregnancy test , which you can do at home as well. There are these pregnancy test kits available in the market and have very simple instructions to follow. The result will be out in 2 to 3 minutes. If you are not pregnant this time and you are sure of not wanting a baby for atleast 2 years , then please use a better method of contraception, like Oral contraceptive pills. There are many safe pills with minimum side effects, if any, specially so if you are otherwise a healthy young woman who is disciplined to take a pill everyday on time

I had sex wid my girlfriend yesterday for the first time.We had used protection,but after orgasm we noticed a white semen like fluid outside.Thinking that the condom had broken we poured water inside it 2 check bt there ws absolutely no leakage.To stay on the safer side she took an i-pill emergency contraceptive pill within 24 hours.It is 10 hours since she has taken pill.There is no discharge till yet.Will she get pregnant?How will we know that the pill is working?Please suggest and guide as we are very tensed.

Yes, even using condom you can get pregnant. condom are only 98% safe, or around that number they are not 100% safe. I sugest you get a pregnancy test.

if condoms get torn during the contact, then the chace of pregnancy increases. it better to take i pill immediately in those situations. i have exprerined the same thing 6 months before, i worried i would be pregnant. i took i pill tablet immediately then even i did the pregnancy test but it was negative. thanks

even using condom you can become pregnant only if there is condom rupture or break in the condom leading to leak of the sperms. so if at all this has happened there is possibility. you can go for a urine pregnancy test if at all

improper usage of the condom will cause pregnancy as it gives 99 percent protection

Mechanical contraceptive devices as condoms do not have 100% efficacy, condoms have only 97-98% efficacy. Nothing to worry!! It can also be due to improper application of the device, rupture or torn of the condoms, that is usual.. Don't worry. Get a urine pregnancy test done and leave aside your anxiety.

I recently had unprotected intercourse with a female partner, the next morning I had slight tingle/irritating sensation inside the tip of my penis nothing too painful and it dose not hurt to urinate or ejaculate. Over the past 3 days I went and go tested to STDs and am awaiting results during this time I have developed lower abdominal pain (near the bladder) as well as sore and tender testicles I m not sure what this could be as I have not visible sore on my genitals or discharge.

Hi Dr. Dilip Raja,

I am a 23 year old, sexually active male. I have had a history of fungal infections (jock itch, infected toes, etc) all over my body. About 3 months ago I started having severe pain on the tip of my penis that worsened after urination, ejaculation and chaffing. I was tested for all STDs at 2 months and 4 months after possible exposure and everything came up negative. I was put on 2 months worth of antibiotics which did nothing to improve my condition. Recently the pain at the tip has gone away but there is now a small line (indentation) along the base of the head of the penis which is the source of the discomfort. It is greatly affecting my sex life. I hope you can help.

hello i have pain after urination, weak urine stream and trouble releasing all urine from bladder. also feel some stillin tubes. slight pain during ejaculation. burning worse at night but starting to be more frequent threw day. had this about 3 weeks with bad burning so i went in after 3 weeks of trying to drink lots of water bc i thought it was a urinary track infection since my wife gets them alot. after 3 weeks wheni took pee test i was tested postitive for clamitia, but my wife who i had unprotected sex with the whole 3 weeks with symtoms came out negative for everythiig and got full paps and swab done, when i returned for 2nd test after meds i could alrdy feel it comeing back, but test came up negative for all stds. whats wrong? its becomeing more difficult to pass urine, more frequent burning the burning is like it pulsates from groin area when it does burn not a steady burn. it can hurt more when flexing that area or moving postions in bed. 26 years old 6 foot 140p ptsd and depression from iraq
