Our expert says:
As long as the condom didn't split then the chances of falling pregnant are very slim. Both the pill and condoms are relatively effective in preventing pregnancy. Condoms will also protect you and your partner from STI's. The best method of avoiding pregnancy is to not have sex, but given that this is not how we live our lives, use condoms and consider the contraceptive pill, which you will need to speak to your doctor about, or contact your local family planning clinic.
If you miss your period, it is important to take a pregnancy test either via you doctor, or a self-test kit which you can get from a pharmacist.
