Yes, you absolutely could still become pregnant! Even if the tear in the condom is tiny, it’s still big enough for sperm to leak out and reach an egg. This is because sperm are microscopic (you can only see them under a microscope) and it just takes one of them to fertilize a woman’s egg. If you were not using any other form of birth control such as the pill, IUD, patch or implant, you should take emergency contraception (EC). According to Planned Parenthood, EC (also called the “morning after pill”) can reduce the risk of pregnancy, up to 89%, but it must be taken within 5 days or 120 hours after unprotected intercourse in order for it to work. EC is most effective the sooner you take it. Using condoms every time you have sex greatly lessens your risk for getting a sexually transmitted infection. While condoms are also effective in preventing pregnancy, it is best to use another method of birth control along with condoms.
