Not only that, but the reversal is supposed to be really painful.

For the OP, my husband and I used condoms as our birth control method for five years and had two break during that time. It didn't result in pregnancy either time.

And even if she says she's pregnant...absolutely insist on DNA testing.

Obviously she's not stressed out about it, she's already given it some thought...if she wasn't receptive to being a mother she would take the morning after pill, and end all doubt......she could very well BE pregnant, and whether YOU'RE stressed or not, this woman could very well end up being the mother of your child.

It is not that easy for some women to get PG...it takes more than one "opps"...I took me 6 months of dedicated TRYING to get PG...so maybe this one time thing will not be a big deal.

Note, for future reference, always have a back up plan, using Spermicide as well as a condom

Whose condom was this? If she is pregnant, I would advise a paternity test because you're looking at 18 years of monthly payments. Some really expensive sex! I really hope she is not pregnant and that you learn from this experience.
Why one earth would a woman by default be on some kind of long term BC when it come with a whole set of risks (hormonal side effects, infection from IUD etc)? Women typically only go on that sort of BC when they are in a long term relationship. A condom should be enough for any reasonable male or female.

To the OP, if the condom had spermicide on it you are probably ok. If not, and she is a fertile myrtle, you're probably going to be a dad. Both of my two kids were one shot wonders (planned) and I have a niece who was a one time condom accident.

So it just depends on how fertile she is and how virile your sperm is.

The morning after pill is an aborficant-- she may not believe in abortion.

They don't? Why do they do them?

Do you have a lot of money?

Is this co-worker someone who has been throwing herself at you for a long time and you finally caved under the onslaught? (you shouldn't ever do that - always trouble)

Unfortunately, you have no way of knowing whether the two of you are fertile-mertyls together. Some people (probably most people in the range of 30 years of age) simply have an extremely easy time successfully merging gametes.

I think jaime_mac meant that doctors don't do them as a form of *temporary* birth control. Permanent birth control? Yes, of course. But not temporary, since not all reversals are successful.

The morning after pill is not an abortifacient. It will not cause the loss of an already implanted embryo.
