Hello,
My boyfriend and i were having sex and we used condoms. he also said that he pulled out before he ejaculated.. but when i saw the condom - the semen were on the sides (around his shaft but inside the condom ? but not at the tip (even though we left space for it - squeezing it before putting it on etc)
Is this normal? Should i be worried that some have leaked out/the condom broke?
Thanks,
bingbooboo

Condoms are designed not to leak. If what you saw was inside the condom, there doesn't seem to be a particular concern about that fluid being outside the condom. If a condom breaks, it will be obvious.

I'm not quite sure what you're describing - are you saying that your boyfriend ejaculated after intercourse, in the condom? If so, it would be a little strange for the ejaculate (also called semen) to be in the shaft of the condom and not the tip, because condoms are designed to hold fluids from the penis in the tip. In that case, you still would not need to be concerned about that fluid because his penis and the condom was already away from your body. You might want to double-check your condom usage: Condom Basics: A User's Manual to be sure that you're fully protected in the future.

Fluid that you might see around the inside of the condom is any lube that you used, or the very small amount of lube that comes with the condom. Sometimes with the friction and movement of intercourse, that lube can look a bit white and frothy. That Would be normal, and not a cause for concern.

Thanks Redskies!
yes, my boyfriend pulled out just before he ejaculated but somehow the semen ended up around the shaft and not the tip - the tip was still deflated - that was why i was worried that the tip has bursted…
but again if it had, the semen wouldn't even be collected around the shaft as it would be quite obvious as you said?
thanks again.

When condoms break, it's like a break in a balloon - even a small tear gets bigger quickly due to all that friction. So if it had broken, it would be pretty easy to see.
