Semen Came Out of Condom

Published: February 8, 2010
Dear TeenHealthFX,

 

Me and My Girlfriend were having sex, and when I pulled out, some semen came out of the condom. But the condom didn’t rip or had a leak. Can my girlfriend be pregnant?

Dear Semen Came Out of Condom,

 

It all depends if the semen that came out came in contact with your girlfriend’s vaginal opening or not. If it did then there is there is a possibility that she could become pregnant. If your girlfriend has been experiencing any of the following symptoms then it would be a good idea to take a Home Pregnancy Test or make an appointment with your doctor for a pregnancy test:

  • Missed period
  • Breast tenderness
  • Bloating
  • Nausea
  • Fatigue
  • Increased or decreased appetite
  • Frequent urination
  • Light headedness

When using a condom properly, no semen should get out of the condom and enter the other person's body. If they are not used correctly, it is possible that some cum can escape the condom. However, it is not difficult to use them properly. Some things to remember:

 

·         Keep condoms handy. Open it and have it close by. Always look at the expiration date on the wrapper before you use a condom. If the date has passed, throw it away.

·         Make sure the condom is the right size. If you cannot roll it down easily, it is too small and may tear. If it fits loosely, it is too big and may fall off.

·        When the penis gets hard, put the condom on by rolling it down the penis while squeezing the tip of the condom (leave about a 1/2 inch at the tip to catch the semen).

·         Make sure to use plenty of water-based lubricant when using a condom. The less friction, the less chance there is that the condom will break or fall off.

·         When you are finished having sex, be sure to hold the base of the condom as you pull out, and move away from your partner before you remove it. Tie it in a knot and throw it out right away. Do this before the penis gets soft.
