I've noticed with some recent partners that I am very wet at the end of sex. Like I can feel slippery when I walk. This usually happens if my partner has performed oral sex on me previous to penetration.

I am on the pill.

What concerns me is the last partner I had. About a month ago, we had sex and the next morning when I stood up I could feel myself slightly leaking. I found this very odd. When I went to the bathroom, it was a very thin clear Fluid. It left a wet spot the size of a nickel on my underwear. I found this odd. We used a condom, but I am unsure if it broke. I assume he would have told me. Is it possible it was left over saliva and or vaginal lubrication? We did not use any additional lube besides the one on the latex condom. Or is it possible the condom broke without my knowledge?

I don't believe it is an infection, I was tested in August for bacterial infections and November for HIV.

So, what's up? I know you ladies aren't doctors, but some insight would be nice as I am concerned.

It is possible that it was left over saliva or vaginal lubricant, and it's also possible that it's just your usual discharge for this time in your cycle.

When condoms break, it's usually pretty obvious -- they don't get tiny holes, they tend to tear pretty majorly. Semen is also not a thin clear fluid, so it doesn't sound like that's what you're describing.

However, do keep in mind that using extra lubricant is a part of proper condom use. The lube included on pre-lubricated condoms isn't actually enough. Without additional lube, condoms ARE more likely to break, so you should consider getting some lube ASAP.

Thanks [Smile]

Yeah, when I wiped it was thin clear and slightly sticky. Sorry if that's TMI. What is the consistency of semen? I've never had anybody ejaculate inside me so that's why I was concerned.

I read online that when a condom breaks just the base hoop is left? Is this true?

Thanks, I'll remember to use lube next time.

You know, after the fact, you're really unlikely to be able to tell the difference between your own vaginal discharges, lubrication and semen. Smell, if anything, is going to be how you can have a sense of if someone ejaculated inside you, because it does tend to make the vagina temporarily smell different than usual.

When a condom breaks, it can break so only the ring is left, but it can also get a tear in it, ot seem to have a big hole.

But really trying to figure out at this point if your condom broke or not seems like something pretty impossible to do.

Okay, gotcha. Thanks! I didn't notice any different smell. I know what you mean, when I used to ditch condoms with my ex, I smelled different down there.

Okay, but a rip would still be noticeable, right? I remember glancing at the condom when he pulled out and didn't see any obvious damage. It's not one of those things where you have to examine it super closely? Sorry for the questions, I'm a bit paranoid and because of this I'm SUPER careful about protection.

Oh, and if you celebrate, Merry Christmas [Smile]

Hi SittingPretty,

Merry Christmas to you too [Smile]

Because of friction, it doesn't take long for a small tear to turn into a big one, so yes, it would be noticeable.

Do you have any other questions?

Cheers,

Marion
