What are the most common reasons for condoms to break? What other ways do they fail?
Some reasons for breakage are:
Condom past use-by date
Condom stored in warm place, like wallet or car
Condom used a second time
Condom too small
Condom used over another condom
Oily lube used, such as vaseline (petroleum jelly) or vegetable oil
Please don't double post.
How effective are condoms if all of the above is followed correctly?
They're very effective if they are used carefully. The main way they can fail, apart from breaking, is if you go soft before pulling out, and because you're smaller then they come off and stay inside. That can happen fairly easily.
Do you have some advice on which brands are real good and which not to use?
What if the condom is not too snug when you are fully erect?
Beware the white text!
--consider that your disclaimer.
It's important that condoms fit well. It's not the length of the penis that matters, but the girth. If a regular condom isn't snug, you need the slightly narrower ones. They have names including words like "slim" or "better fit". Using a condom that is too wide is certainly dangerous, as it may leak or come off.
my boyfriend smokes alot of pot and his sperm count is low but we where going at it and right before he came the condom busted but we also pulled out and so not alot really came in me and i dont know what to do their is no way i can give birth and go threw pregnency to give my child away Please someone help me out here
ok i tried finding the nearest clinic in my town and it says to get this pill i have to have a parent with me to get it.....but my mom cant find out or i can end up getting kicked out of the house and i cant do that is there anything else i can do besides the morning afterpill......oh and my boyfriend said that you can take birthcontrol and it will make me have my period just like the morning after pill can do so does anyone think that will work?????
Well, you could get an aunt to go with you and pose as your mother. i have also read that starting the pill right afterr unprothected sex can prevent pregnacy. And remeber you only have 5 days to get the mornig after pill for it to be effective, but the sooner the better. Go to plannedparenthood.com or call 1-800-not-2-late.
