Hi Scarleteen, firstly I'd like to say thank you for all your help and support. Your website has often been a very comforting place when I've had no one to talk to.
But this is my question. You see, two days ago (July 1st) I engaged in sex. My boyfriend and I used a condom, as always and everything seemed okay. I didn't notice anything different upon withdrawal. However, when he was disposing of the condom, he noted that it hadn't been completely rolled down, but I didn't think anything of it. Then, half an hour later or so, he told me that after he had ejaculated he continued thrusting for maybe 30 seconds. The condom definitely didn't break, and to my knowledge didn't slip, although it hadn't been completely unrolled down the shaft (however it wasn't a massive amount that hadn't been unrolled.) We haven't had any other condom problems, and they've always been used perfectly. My period had just ended, and in fact there was still a little bit of blood present after sex (due to my period). My cycle is quite short, but fairly regular, give or take a day, and is due on the 20th of this month. Do you think this is a reason to worry, or should there be any reason to believe the condom may have failed? Could it have "leaked", or is that even possible?
Also just looking to know, how does a condom slip, and would you notice? I'm unsure quite what that means.
Thank you, and please reply as soon as you can so I can decide whether I should take any more steps to protect myself against pregnancy.

As long as the condom does not not break or come off all the way, you can assume it did what it was supposed to. If the condom had been rolling up during intercourse, that might mean that there's a size issue, so trying out different sizes or brands might help prevent future rolling.
