i just was wondering, what about using an expired condom? some days ago, i opened one i this condition and it was fine, good lubricated and not broken. I know it's not a good idea to use an expired condom, but if a person has to use it, what's the limit of days after expiration date to use it?

The expiration date is the limit. No further. If you are in a position where an expired condom is your only source of protection you're better off simply waiting until you can get protection. With condoms being so inexpensive and easily available there is no reason to do anything else.
