Is it true that you only have a risk of pregnancy of the condom breaks or slips off... Also would you notice a break if it happened?

The most important thing to do is sit down and go over exactly how to put on a condom correctly. While it may seem like common sense, the truth is that the majority of condom failure is a result of human error, ie, the condom not being put on and used correctly. Do that and you should be fine. No birth control is 100% but it drastically reduces the chances of STI's, HIV or pregnancy.
