This is the third time your girlfriend has taken EC in the last two weeks, bibba. EC is really meant for emergencies- it is NOT intended to be used frequently, as it's a big dose of hormones that can be really rough on the body. Condoms really should not be breaking this frequently- are you putting them on correctly and using lubricant? Leaving room at the tip?

It is not likely your girlfriend will get pregnant as long as she takes the EC in a timely manner and as directed.

Yes I am using it correctly but Im going to start using lube starting tomarrow so I think that should help. I also think it was because of these certain condoms so ill be switching around trying to find a better product.

Sounds like a plan- extra lube really is a good idea with condoms, as even the lubricated ones don't really have enough on them.

Also, where are you storing your condoms? It's best to keep them somewhere room temperature and away from direct light (ie in a dresser drawer). Storing them improperly (by a heating vent, or in a bathroom, for example) can degrade the latex and make it break easier.

Too, make sure they aren't past the expiration date, as expired condoms are far more likely to break.
