Please answer! What makes a condom break/burst?

Please answer! What makes a condom break/burst?

Vigorous sex: Condoms are made to standards which lower the chance of bursting. But vigorous sexual activity, especially with adjunctive sexual toys and aids, can increase the likelihood of a rupture. As they are usually made of latex, they can also age so don't let them site on the shelf too long. Since they are mass produced, no doubt, a few get to market intrinsically defective. ...Read more

Can you have protectiv sex when she's ovulating, or is that to risky if the condom would break?

Only if new partner: Condoms combined with your Nuvaring can minimize the risk of STD's. If you trust your present partner and you both of free of STD's then the condom is optional.
