I was with my girlfriend last night and I had some expired condoms. They are Trojans and expired Jan. of 06. I wasn't sure what to do but I used it anyway... It didn't break or anything but was kinda hard to put on and seemed a little stickier than usual. It was dark in the room but I think the end was a bit darker in color. Is everything ok if it didn't break??

If the condom didn't break, you should be okay.

You do NOT want to be using expired condoms though. Things (like condoms) have an expiration date for a reason. They are more likely to fail if they're past their expiration date.

So go treat yourselves to some new condoms.
