When looking at failure rates for contraceptives, they always have a figure for 'perfect use'and typical use'. What do each of these entail when it comes to condoms and oral contraceptive pills?

Are you asking what the typical use rates and perfect use rates are for both the pill and for condoms?

If so, we have a whole section on birth control that includes a page of information for each method, including their effectiveness rates, and how these methods work and how they typically fail, when they do.

That landing page is here, and the links to each method are about halfway down the page: Birth Control Bingo!
