AF is a little late and I'm wondering if it's possible. I'm probably not, but I'm curious.

my youngest two are products of properly used, non-broken condoms

we were charting, using condoms always and feeling pretty confident, both times.. we didn't notice any breaking or leakage, which meant that we were very surprised the first time (it could happen, once.. right?) and literally knocked off our feet with the second (they're 3.5 years apart). Guess our girls needed to be here

(FWIW, our oldest was/is a straight-up boken rubber ).

Good luck!

Wow! That really amazes me. How in the world does that happen? Does one little super sperm manage to permeate the condom or something?

Thanks for sharing.

I just posted a question similar to this about a day ago. Im in the same situation, now 3 days late, and condom used correctly every time. The responses I got back were that it can be completely normal, my post was "Have you ever been late and not pregnant?" I wasn't sure how to copy and paste the link, but if you look up family planning, it is in there. I hope this helps. The answers I got back were very reassuring for me.. Thank you ladies for all the help!

That's how my 1st son came and I was on depo, go figure. Then I had the nerve to think the FAM method would work for me and got #3, #2 was planned.

My first daughter was a failed condom - however, I wasn't actually CHECKING them or anything - but I never noticed a rip/tear............

When a baby wants to come - they come! But of course I would never have it another way now!

when everyone says "using a condom correctly" you do actually mean that he is wearing it from the beginning, right?

We have been married 6 years and used condoms before recently going to NFP. We never had a surprise pregnancy.

I got pregnant when I was 16 (later MC) using a condom properly....I supplied it myself, checked it, made sure he put it on correctly....and made sure he immediately withdrew afterward so that nothing could escape out the sides.....still got preggers.

The "perfect" use failure rate for condoms is 2%.

I know a woman who got pregnant while on the pill and using condoms.

My sister became pregnant for #2 using condoms and a diaphram. They figure the sperm must have been carrying swords! My niece is a very bright, stubborn, determined teenager right now. That girl gets what she wants from life!

We had an unintentional pregnancy (m/c) using condoms. But I can't say that we were using them correctly. We would get the condom on about midway through. But, that was back when we were first dating, so we were having sex daily, and sometimes multiple times a day, so it's quite likely that the pg was a result of leftover sperm that was not cleared out between DTD.

Our current pg is a condom baby. Your stat is BEFORE those prophylactics leave the warehouse. What about all the temp change and shifting and handling that happens between the warehouse and the shelf.

Typical failure rate is 10-13%.

As I said to my husband, the only way we can 100% guarantee to not get preggo is to not go anywhere near each other! LOL


Ain't gonna happen...
