Is it possible to get pregnant using condoms?

Is it possible to get pregnant using condoms?

Yes...: Condoms can break. Also, improperly fitted condom allows sperm/semen to leak. Also, not all condoms contain spermicide.... So, read the instruction. Look for ones that contain spermicide. Even with the best fit and use etc...There still is a very small chance....

Pregnancy (Definition)

When your due date arrives, you will be more than ready to have your baby! Most women deliver the baby somewhere between 37 and 42 weeks. According to the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists, only 5% of babies arrive on the exact due date. Approximately 7% of babies are not delivered by 42 weeks, and when that happens, it is referred to ...Read more

Depends on situation: All seminal fluid contains sperm that may cause pregnancy.If the condom is not applied before any sexual contact starts, the seminal secretions may pass and cause pregnancy. Properly used, condoms have a failure rate estimated at 1% in some references.

Is it possible to get pregnant if using a spermicidal condom during sex but if I touched the condom with possible dry precum on my hand as it went in?

Is it possible to get pregnant if using a spermicidal condom during sex but if I touched the condom with possible dry precum on my hand as it went in?

Dry is not fresh: If you want a 100% answer that will be impossible. But, sperm do not survive being 'dry'. To swim they must be fresh and contained in wet semen.

Is it possible to get pregnant if the condom slipped?

Is it possible to get pregnant if the condom slipped?

ABSOLUTELY: Condoms are only 85-90% effective. The condom may fall off during withdrawal of the penis and sperm can find their way back up into the vagina, through the cervix, up the uterus, and into the fallopian tube where an anxious egg await. It only takes one sperm to penetrate the egg and a male ejaculate may contains as many as 150, 000, 000 of them.

Is it possible to get pregnant if the condom remains intact?

Is it possible to get pregnant if the condom remains intact?

Codoms Fail: Even if the condom appears "intact", it can still have small holes present in its' material allowing sperm to "escape" and pregnancy to follow. Always use a vaginal "backup" spermicide with a condom to avoid this scenario.

Is it possible to get pregnant whole ovulating when wearing a condom?

Is it possible to get pregnant whole ovulating when wearing a condom?

How to get Pregnant?: Remember to get pregnant a female must be ovulating and be exposed to fresh semen inside of the vagina. I am not sure what you are missing in this simple fact. If your partner does not expose you to any sperm you cannot get pregnant. Right?

Is it possible to get pregnant if the condom was half way off but not completely during withdrawal?

Is it possible to get pregnant if the condom was half way off but not completely during withdrawal?

Depends: Pregnancy requires that a healthy sperm enter the female genital tract and unite with a healthy egg. If any of the secretions of the excited penis escaped the condom, pregnancy is possible, though not likely.

Is it possible to get pregnant a week to two weeks before you are fertile/ovulate. Had sex a couple weeks ago and condom slipped off?

Is it possible to get pregnant a week to two weeks before you are fertile/ovulate. Had sex a couple weeks ago and condom slipped off?

No, but?: If a person was absolutely sure when she ovulates, then she couldn't get pregnant two weeks before; one week riskier. The problem is, you can't be 100% sure when you ovulate so women have reported getting pregnant on any day of their menstrual cycles. If periods are very regular, however, ovulation can be estimated fairly well. ALWAYS use reliable contraception if no pregnancy is desired.

Is it possible to get pregnant a couple days before you start being fertile and ovulate? Had sex and condom broke. I start being fertile tomorrow.

Is it possible to get pregnant a couple days before you start being fertile and ovulate? Had sex and condom broke. I start being fertile tomorrow.

No and Yes: Before ovulation, a woman cannot get pregnant, because the egg is not out of the ovary yet. However, she can receive sperm 2 days before ovulation and get pregnant after ovulation from that sperm. Sex more than 1-2 days after ovulation is usually too late to cause pregnancy because the egg is over 2 days old. The tricky part is that she cannot know exactly when her egg will pop out of her ovary.

Is it possible to get pregnant with no ejaculation, a condom and birth control? How likely is it?

Is it possible to get pregnant with no ejaculation, a condom and birth control? How likely is it?

Small likelihood: It depends on birth control method in addition to condom. With condom and no ejaculation, it is possible to get pregnant. It only take a tiny amount of sperm and a less than perfect condom.

Is it possible to get pregnant after my boyfriend inserted his fingers into my vagina, about 5 minutes after taking off a condom...

Is it possible to get pregnant after my boyfriend inserted his fingers into my vagina, about 5 minutes after taking off a condom...

Timing matters: The timing of this event in relationship to your ovulation would be a big factor. Also, the vitality of his sperm and a bunch of luck - good or bad depending on whether it's something you both want or not. Pregnancy from this is much less likely than vaginal sex w/out a condom on the same day. If you miss a period, do a test. Again, timing matters.

Condoms (Definition)
