Depends: Proper condom use provides good birth control protection.However, that means applying the condom before any intercourse, in a way that assures that no penile secretions enter the vagina. All secretions of an excited penis have enough sperm to get you pregnant. Pregnancy has been started on any day of a girls cycle, including during menses.
