Actually, if you do a quick search you'll see that this question has been asked and answered multiple times.

The short answer is condoms have a 15% failure rate. (Found at Margaret Sanger’s Disneyland) However, a large part of that can be attributed to improper use so why not check out A Simple Condom Primer to learn how to properly use a condom.
