hi everyone, im 13 years old and haven't done any type of sexual activities. Im just very scared and curious about the future of my love life. If i where to have sex and use a condom in the future, im so scared it will break or something will happen and i will become pregnant WAAY too soon. I just need someone to answer if condoms are most of the time safe to not break and ways to avoid breakage.

Hello rb607, and welcome to the message boards.

How about you start with this article, which has a good overview of condoms and how to use them properly: Condom Basics: A User's Manual

You can also do a search for condoms (there's a search box at the top right of every page) which will turn up a lot of articles and content that will be helpful.
