Do I need the emergency contraceptive pill?

Me and my partener were having protected sex, after a while I heard the condom split so we quickly stopped as I didn't want to risk getting getting pregnant. I am on the combined pill (levest) but have only started it recently, last Sunday to be exact. Do I need an emergency contraceptive pill or will I be okay or am I overthinking?

I would, just in case you aren't covered. But I would first speak to a doctor, because they're better equipped to be able to tell you and they can talk you through your options :)


As an addendum, you didn't say whether he ejaculated. If not, your risk of pregnancy is low. If he did then you DEFINITELY should consider the emergency contraceptive because ultimately, you're at risk.
