Ok, i know that there is a Sex thread, but i want to ask about condoms, and their safety.

Me and my girlfriend of 2 years plan to 'do it' around this christmas, and i was researching condoms...and this is what i got

Pregnancy Rates:
perfect use: 2%
typical use: 10-18%

what the hell does this mean? does this mean i have a 10-18% chance of making her preagnant? It can't be, i mean come on...i bet my parents 'do it' every day..and i only have one brother so far -_-

Anyone care to tell me if it's true??

This is a serious question. come on guys, at least im concerned

but i guess this is the pit, eh?
#6
The 'typical use' rate is high because many people don't use them properly.
No method of contraception is perfect. go for a 'belt and braces' approach, and get her on the pill as well as using a condom(not that there aren't plenty of other methods you could use as well).
#8
I'll sacrifice... Yeah, it's safe... Unless you can't put it on correctly or you're a smartass and buy magnum ones (not to say you're little).
ZZZOMG!!!

well, the reason the percentage for pregnancy is so high, is because you have to factor in the retards that don't know how a condom works. If you're not a ****ing moron, you should be alright. and as for your parents, your mom is probably on the pill or your dad had a vasectomy.

I know how it's 100% effective... use a condom and get a blowjob... not only is 100% effective, it's more degrading*.


*However, less pleasurable.

2% is still quite a big chance :S

i mean...it's not much to toy with :S

2% means that if you use a condom every time perfectly there is a 2% chance that the condom will break due to manufacturing errors. That can be fixed by simply filling the used condom with water and playing around with it for a few minutes. If the water shoots out of the condom then there's a tiny hole or it broke. The next morning (or if you have a 24 hour drug store) you go and get plan B and your problems are most likely solved.

The 10-18% stat was achieved through asking people who buy condoms if they use one every time. So that statistic accounts for condom users who sometimes take the chance and have sex without one. It may take into account the people who used them improperly as well.

You honestly don't think your parents have a good ol' fuckin evey once in a while? Come on, grow up.
#17
just make sure you dont have it sitting around in you wallet for a while either, and dont buy a super thin one, theres more of a chance that one of those will break, allowing for leaks.

I'll field this question, but only since I'm feeling generous.

The percentages you're looking at is the typical averages of pregnancy with condom use. Perfect basically means that you're using a proper fit and nothing goes wrong, such as tears (which are highly unlikely if you use a reputable brand and don't do anything stupid). Typical use probably refers to an average use and possible errors (slippage, tear, etc.) 10% is still a small chance, though not one you might be willing to take.

Don't let all the stats scare you, though it isn't something to take lightly. As long as you take responsibility, use a proper fit, and take care, you should be fine.

Grayedit: If anything at all, and I mean ANYTHING, maybe suggest the morning-after pill if you're feeling really antsy about the ordeal. You can typically find them in a clinic or some pharmacies for around $60. Use this as a definitive last resort, however, as it needs to be taken 72 hours afterward and contains a powerful dose of birth control which will probably feel unpleasant to your girlfriend for a few days.

Another bit of advice: Trojan does sell condoms with a coating of spermicide, a substance that kills sperm cells. If safety is your prime concern, this could help ease your worries. Have a browse about your local Wal-Mart or drugstore. If no luck, go to the Web.

Get her on the pill, too, at the very least. Think of it this way: No guy has ever been waiting while his girl in the delivery room thinking: "If only I'd been more reckless with contraception!"

No, they're not safe, don't use condoms. Use something manly, like a garbage bag.

yes, they have to be prescribed so I don't think there is a way to do it without her parents finding out


There's a thing called doctor to patient discretion. It's against the law for the doctor to tell her parents.

condoms are the safest form of birth control for your assumed age. There is very slim chance of getting preagnant.
