Hi scarleteen
I had sex and what if the condom broke and I didn't notice? Is it something that I won't miss? I kind of don't trust the guy when he said he's pretty sure it didn't break and I didn't get to inspect it thoroughly. He's just more careless than I am I should say.

Is this about the same incident you already talked with us about, here: http://www.scarleteen.com/forum/ultimatebb.php?/ubb/get_topic/f/21/t/002334.html ?

If you looked at the condom, you can be confident that you would have seen a break if there had been one.

If a condom breaks, it's obvious, so he would have noticed if he looked at the condom.

If we don't feel we can trust someone either not to lie to us about something as important and fundamental as our safety from STI transmission and pregnancy risk, or we don't trust them that they care enough to bother checking, they're probably not a suitable sexual partner for us. One of the basic requirements in a sexual partner is that we trust them enough to hold up their part of the responsibility for those things, enough that we feel comfortable and confident with them. Is that perhaps part of why you're still worrying about this?

Different time. And yeah I know..it's just that I don't think he's as observant. Or maybe he's just not as paranoid as me. I could be the problem come to think of it. And I just started having sex.
Also..When he put the Condom on, it wasn't all the way at the base. I mean it wasn't in the middle of the shaft but it wasn't able to roll all the way down to cover the entire penis. (it couldn't roll anymore) it was one of those free condoms at the school clinic. What danger does that pose? The rim was tight and the condom itself too was tight though. It just didn't cover his entire penis down Closer to the scrotum. Does that give a pregnancy risk?

As long as the condom did not slip off or break (and again, if it broke, you would have noticed, broken condoms tend to shred) then it did not fail. Condoms that are too tight or too loose are only a problem if they slip off or break as a result of poor fit: otherwise, they are effective.
