are thinner condoms more prone to breaking than the regular ones? i bought a pack of the trojan ultra thin condoms but my friend asked me why i would get those if i don't want to get pregnant? are they safe? im kinda scared to use them now, i didn't really think they would be more prone to breaking

Actually, thinner condoms can be LESS likely to break, as there would be less friction. As long as you store them properly, and use adequate lubrication when using them, then you should have no problem.

You can take a look here for more info about different styles of condoms. [Smile]

alright thank you so much!
i had no idea that the thinner ones are actually less likely to break. so there is no reason to worry about the thinner ones if i use them properly?

Nope, no more reason to worry than using any other condom.
