    Yep! A couple times. I was using both condoms and BC pills at the time so wasn’t worried.

    Once. Because we were using a cheap brand in college. lol. Did what PP did and went and got Plan B asap. I was minorly freaking out for a few days, but all was well. I’ve never had a quality brand break though.

    Yes.

    1st time wasn’t on BC and ran out to get Plan B

    2nd time was on BC, so I didn’t worry.

    I have had two breaks with Trojans, and a couple of slip outs. I am on BC though and am religious in taking it so I didn’t worry.

    I found a statistic that said that 4 out of 1000 latex condoms break (0.4%).  However, pregnancies can happen without a condom breaking.  With perfect use, 3 in 100 women will become pregnant while using condoms and with typical use, 14 in 100 women will become pregnant.

    @oracle: I’m not an expert in this area, but I think part of it woud be improper use.  I would suspect problems such as slipping out (wrong size condom?), condom coming off while in the female, not putting the condom on before starting intercourse (i.e. waiting until closer to orgasm), etc.

    Once so far but then again we haven’t been doing ‘it’ with a condom as long. (I got off B.C. and we started condoms.) I can literally count the amount of times we’ve done it with a condom if I really try. Haha! Ours was 1 in 12th out of I’d guesstimate 20.

    It was a ‘brand’ name which now i cannot remember. I think it was Trojan. However, since we always pull out as well before he is cuming, the condom broke when he came. The cum exceeded it and it popped. I was not a happy camper! Yell Fortunately it did not happen inside me. But I did get scared that perhaps there was a little tear before which just spread out. But I am not preggo, so *phew!* Wink

    I personally don’t trust condoms by themselves at all. Had quite a few break over the years (different people and different brands-yes, all common name brands). It can definitely happen!!
