Hi!
Just wanted to ask, myself and a partner had sex with an inside out condom on. I know this because it was not fully rolled down. We didn't turn it the other way, understanding that was a risk, but did have contact with it on inside out. He held the end and it did not slip or break. He didn't orgasm. Are we at an increased risk of pregancy or STDs?
Thanks, Lucy

What I don't know was how good was the seal betwen the penis and the condom ring when worn in this manner? My initial thoughts are that your risk is very low but more than if the condom had been worn properly. You probably should take a pregnancy test 10-14 days after the incident just to be sure.

Remember that condoms are classified as medical devices and are meant to be used as directed.

Thanks for your reply that's pretty reassuring. The seal seemed tight and the penis never entered the vagina any further than the length the condom was unrolled. Next time I'll offer to help put it on properly myself!
