I heard that a small tear in a condom IS NOT the reason for pregnancy. Is that true? One of your doctors said that.

In brief: Weird question

Intercourse or other activity that introduces sperm into a female during her fertile interval causes pregnancy.
It only takes one sperm to do the job and a torn condom can leak more than enough.Your question feels like anger or defensiveness. I cannot comment on how you interpreted the words of another site doc, and find it hard to believe they said what you say.
