Hi
I missed my period last month and it's still not here for this month ( I do have a histroy of very irregular periods, though, and life's been stressful lately).
If a condom ripped, it would be noticeable, right? I had intercourse with my boyfriend last month and we held it while withdrawing etc. I took it off him and didn't notice anything wrong with it. Could it have failed anyway? I rember reading they break like balloons do.. so I assume I'm safe, correct?

thanks

That's a good way of describing what a broken condom looks like, and it's right on.

If you guys did not have it on for ALL genital contact, that's the other thing that can create a risk. And we do have to leave a very, very small window for manufacturer error one wouldn't notice.

But otherwise, pregnancy is unlikely. But given how late your period is, it sure wouldn't hurt to take a pregnancy test/

I've already had a pregnancy scare, so I'm careful to use a condom for ALL contact. So I'm sure nothing went wrong there. I'll take a test if I don't get my period soon, but I just wanted to amke sure any mechanical damage to the condom would be noticable while taking it off. [Smile]

thanks
