Hi, well long story short, My girlfriend and I had sex for the first time, I put on a condom after washing and drying my penis. Because it was our first time I didn't get far in at all and the condom stayed on at all times, I also came outside her in to the condom far away from her vagina. She's worried since her period is supposed to start pretty soon but she's not feeling anything. Is there any way the condom might have had a small hole, I didn't think it was at all possible since I did come in the condom and nothing happened, but I was only again my final question is, is there any way a small hole could be possible? Or would it have been noticeable because I did check it and I didn't see anything. And what could explain my girlfriend not feeling anything if she isn't pregnant?

Thank you

Just for future reference, no one needs to wash and dry the penis before putting a condom on. It doesn't make your condom any more effective than it already is.

If you stored your condom properly before use, you can rest assured it didn't have holes in it: condoms are rigorously tested, each and every one, before they are packaged and distributed.

We don't know about your girlfriend's menstrual cycle, nor what it's like for her. Plenty of people don't have PMS symptoms, or noticeable PMS symptoms, before periods. As well, lots of people don't chart their periods to really have an accurate sense of when to expect them, or make incorrect estimates of when they should be coming. Many people also have irregular periods.
