Hi Doctor Norm,Nearly 14 years ago I had sex with a sex worker which was protected (condom). At some point, I suspected that the condom broke although I can't be sure it did! It must be mentioned that I didn't ejaculate in the suspect condom. As soon as I suspected I told the woman who promptly removed the old condom and put a new one on. It was in the afternoon I went so I think I can safely say I peed since my last ejaculation (I'm told that urine is no good for sperm and it can flush residual sperm out-is this right?). At the time I didn't think about pregnancy-I was more concerned with HIV so I got myself tested and it came back clear. I will add that the woman concerned was 44-45 years of age and am now aware that women in their forties find it somewhat harder to get pregnant under normal circumstances-is this true? It's only recently that I've started to worry that I may have gotten her pregnant and I don't understand why I've started worrying now. Please help.Cameron
