Dear Ash,

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.

Best wishes

Condoms are about 97% effective against pregnancy. Things that make them less effective are: tearing, not being used properly, put on too late in the process, slipping off, being faulty.
The pill is about 99% safe against pregnancy, it fails to work when you take an antibiotic, forget to take it, take it wrong, have diarhea or vomiting within 12 hours of taking it.

You should always use a condom to guard against STI's.

Nothing except abstinence is 100% effective against pregnancy. However, using a condom is a responsible thing to do.
