Good morning, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com. What you need to know beforehand, is that as long as there is access for sperm cells to meet eggs, the possibility of getting pregnant is there, even though it is very small. For example, when someone has sex but the results of the ejaculate are outside, the semen that comes out before ejaculation occurs can carry sperm. There have been many cases where pregnant women even though ejaculation is done outside because there are sperm cells that 'rise' and come out with the semen first from the ejaculation itself. So the moment when your husband pulls out the penis from your vagina, the sperm cells are actually already in the vagina.
Then when someone has sex when the woman is menstruating and not during the fertile period, the sperm has a long life in the uterus and can 'wait' for about 7-10 days to finally fertilize an egg. So having sex during menstruation does not necessarily cause a woman to avoid potential pregnancies, especially those with only H-5 from ovulation.
Then for contraceptives themselves, whether in the form of condoms, IUDs, birth control pills or injections, there has never been any research that dares to say that its effectiveness reaches 100%. So there is still the possibility of getting pregnant for those who use contraception. Use of contraceptives only reduces this possibility. A pregnancy can be completely prevented only if steady contraception is used or one that involves surgery, because with surgery, your husband's sperm pathway and / or your egg's pathway has closed, making it impossible for the two cells to meet.
But in your case, if you and your partner have combined a condom, a lubricant that also works to kill sperm, does not ejaculate in the vagina, and a calendar method, although we still cannot guarantee 100% that you will not get pregnant, it is possible for you to getting pregnant is minuscule, maybe even less than 0.001%.
So that in our opinion, you can rest easy for a while. If in the end you are still pregnant, continue to love your child because it means that is what was destined for you and your husband after going through such a small possibility, and consult your obstetrician again whether the method of using your contraceptive is correct to avoid an unplanned pregnancy. . So, hopefully it answers your question.
