I have been with my boyfriend for 7 years, and our condom broke for the first time, it happens girls. But you need to know a few things.

I took 4 HPT's and a blood test which were all negative. This is definitely somethi ... Show Full Comment

I took Next Choice One Dose 2 hours after the condom breaking during sex.. I was 2 days late on my period which made me FREAK OUT but please please don't get stressed when you start late! That's just a side effect of the pill. I finally started and I thank God!
