Condoms are 93-97% effective when used properly. So your chances are 3-7%. If the condom breaks, has a hole, or comes off, obviously your chances increase, but none of those senarios are built into the 3-7%.

Oral and mutual masturbation are the only ways to still have loveual pleasure without a chance of getting pregnant. But for coitus, condoms, of course, plus the pill, including the morning after pill, and do it only the times of month you are not fertile. Also check with your doctor.

No form of birth control is 100% effective. If you're a teenager and you're thinking about having love, use two methods of birth control if at all possible. It'll increase your chances of being protected and decrease your chances of an unwanted pregnancy. Just tell your boyfriend that if you two are going to be having love, that condoms will be worn ANY and EVERY time or there will be no love. love is a grown up act, and if you're grown up enough to do it, you BOTH need to be grown up enough to protect yourselves. If he has a problem with wearing condoms, save yourself for someone else.

hi...as you may know they say that birth control and even condoms are not 100% effective its always 98%....the other part is you used double protection and and you have been using it since a year and its working for you..so very less chances of any pregnancy....
