Ok..what if the guys doesn't hold on to the base of the condom as he pulls out? He said when he looked it was still up where it was supposed to be but... could some of the semen have leaked out?

If he said the base was still up where it was supposed to be, it should be ok, however you must always, always hold on to the base.
On the other hand, if the condom did slide down, even a bit, revealing an area on his penis which his ejaculate had touched, then yes, there is a pregnancy risk and STD risk. Get yourself to a doctor or a clinic to get tested asap. Your health is of the utmost importance to us

In forgetting to hold onto the base, the condom could easily slip off and therefore cancels out the protection the condom was supposed to bring. Always use a condom correctly.

Check this out, it will help you greatly with regards to using a condom properly http://www.scarleteen.com/infection/condom.html

Check out A Simple Condom Primer. It's not necessary to hold onto the base of the condom during intercourse, but it's important for the guy to do so when he pulls out after intercourse and when removing the condom.

From the Primer:

quote:
While you are using the condom, you or your partner do not need to hold its base: condoms are designed for hands-free use.

After he has an orgasm and ejaculates (or doesn't but you're finished having sex), hold the base of the condom (the rolled-up part) with your hand and hold it with your other hand by the tip. Pulling it off by the tip alone not only makes a big mess, you could drip all over yourself what you just worked so hard to keep out.

Nope, "hands free use" means that during the activity, while the penis is erect, there is no need to hold onto the condom. However, you must hold onto the base of the condom after ejaculation while withdrawing.
