    It is highly unlikely, but the only way to be certain is to watch for any delayed next menstrual period and get a urine pregnancy test at that point. Highly recommend consistent use of condoms to avoid any unplanned pregnancies in future. Dual contraception would be much better i.e condoms plus oral contraceptive pills or a patch or depo shot. Condoms have the other benefit of decreasing the risk for sexually transmitted infections.
