In brief: Several Ways
Condoms that are old (beyond expiration date), ripped while putting it on, use of an oil based lubricant (vasolene, baby oil), oil based lubricant on skin or hands, friction without enough lubrication, etc.

True. Perhaps the wrong size, cheap product, or an older product. The polymer degrades over time.

It also depends upon how often the patient tries to use the same condom. I have had one patient tell me it broke after five usages.
