my boyfriend and i use condoms as a backup to the pill (I'm in the perfect user category) but the condom always seems to slip and stay in my vagina. it's happened the last 4 times. why is that? the condom always seems to be on correctly.

If the condom is always on correctly -- rolled all the way down to the base, for instance -- may be that he needs to try a different condom size or style.

When he puts the condom on, does the bottom ever seem to kind of start to roll back up towards the top of his penis quickly (before any sex)? If so, he may need a larger one. If not, but it's slipping off, he may need a snugger style.

You just said the condom "always seems to slip."

Is it always or never?
