    the typical user fail rate is 15%, but if its used perfectly then your chances of getting pregnant is 2%

    The percentage I usually hear is 80-85% effectiveness for condoms. That said, most of the remaining 15-20% is people using the condom incorrectly.

    What I learned from sex ed about using a condom correctly:

    1. Make sure there is a little extra room in the tip when the guy puts it on, in order to catch the semen when he ejaculates. Otherwise there's a higher risk of it breaking.

    2. make sure that the condom is not inside out when you put it on. The way my sex-ed teacher described this is "Sombrero, not mushroom"

    Basically, balance the center of the condom on your finger. If the tip points up and it looks like a little sombrero, it's right-side out. If it looks like a little mushroom cap, it's inside-out

    However, bear in mind I've never had sex and so cannot speak from direct experience. If you're worried about it, then talk to your doctor and/or try to get a backup method of contraception

    If the condom is used properly and doesn't break or anything, it's pretty much 100% likely she won't get pregnant. But that's only if nothing goes wrong.

    Condoms when used correctly are 97% effective which decreases when you add things like alcohol.
