Is this dangerous?<br /> </em>– <em>Bella*</em></p> <p>The <a href="https://kidshealth.org/ws/RadyChildrens/en/teens/contraception-condom.html/">condom</a> itself isn't likely to be dangerous — though you'll need to get it out so it doesn't cause problems. But when a condom slips off, you are at higher risk for <a href="https://kidshealth.org/ws/RadyChildrens/en/teens/std.html/">STDs</a> and unplanned pregnancy.</p> <p>Put your finger into your vagina and see if you can pull the condom out. If you can get it out on your own, check the condom to be sure it is whole and no pieces are still inside you. If you can't remove the condom completely, or you're not sure it's all out, call your doctor or visit a health clinic right away.</p> <p>Even if you do get the condom out, you'll still want to see your doctor or go to a health clinic to be <a href="https://kidshealth.org/ws/RadyChildrens/en/teens/std-testing.html/">tested for STDs</a> and pregnancy. Condoms are the only form of birth control that offers some protection against STDs <strong>and</strong> help prevent pregnancy. So when a condom slips off, that protection goes away.</p> <p>Condoms can come off during sex if they're not the right size or not put on properly. Your boyfriend should pick the size and brand that fits most comfortably and snugly. When putting on the condom, roll it all the way down your boyfriend's erect penis, not just part of the way.</p> <p>How your boyfriend pulls out matters too. It's best to pull out immediately after ejaculation while the penis is still somewhat hard. When pulling out, your boyfriend should hold the condom around the base of the penis so it doesn't slip off.</p> <p>If you're worried about pregnancy and want to get <a href="https://kidshealth.org/ws/RadyChildrens/en/teens/contraception-emergency.html/">emergency contraception</a>, you can pick it up at&nbsp;a drugstore. Or go to&nbsp;your doctor, nurse practitioner , or health clinic as soon as possible. Emergency contraception can lower your chances of getting pregnant if you take it within 5 days after you had sex.</p> <p><em>*Names have been changed to protect user privacy.</em></p>
