    Default condom broke!

    anyone had a bad experience with Durex Fetherlight Intense Condoms???
    We found they did not fit my partner properly - rolled off all the time. We should have tried another sort, but the last time we used this (****) brand it broke. I dont know where i am in my cycle so i dont know the chances of pregnancy.....??? Partner said i was not 'dry'. I dont know why it broke.
    Would like to know if we got a bad batch of these condoms........please comment!!!!!

    I have had a few break, but not sure what the brands were...my attention was focused elsewhere

    I would recommend getting the MAP just in case (if you don't wish to be pregnant).

    ...in a position where we have planned for a pregnancy....but not right now....would MAP have effets on falling pregnant in the comming month or so?

    Get the morning after pill if you don't want to be pregnant. It will only affect your fertility this month

    Always use a water based lubricant with condoms, even though they are meant to be lubricated. Also put a drop of lubricant inside near the reservoir tip for his comfort and to increase his pleasure.

    Make sure you get the right fit. If he is wide all the way down, go for wide fit, if he is much bigger at the head end, go for flared.

    It is extremely rare for a condom to break if you have the right shape condom for your partner and have enough lubrication.

    Also, make sure he holds the base/rim when he withdraws and to check every now and again that it is still on if he is the type to almost fully withdraw on every stroke or if you are extremely vigourous in your activities.
