First off I do know I am completely crazy, but I just wanna know from curiosity...

Has anyone here gotten pregnant using condoms for BC? I know it happens, but how or what goes wrong usually to cause it?


We are using condoms solely for BC because I can't do hormones and even though I track my periods on a phone app I dont really know my cycle. I just wondered if its even possible to conceive using condoms? I know most are 98% effective or so so i assume its rare.

We are only waiting a bit because we wanna be more stable income wise and move first and probably get married beforehand, but we would be just as happy. We use non-latex ones because my crazy self can't handle every aspect of latex haha....

any experiences?

We're pretty sure my current pregnancy is a condom baby.

And then there's my youngest sister. My mom wasn't ovulating and hadn't hit menopause yet. So the doctor had her on the pill to make her shed her lining to avoid uterine cancer. And they were being extra careful beside and my dad was using condoms. Somehow they got pregnant anyways. So now I have a sister who's 16 years younger than me.

So it happens, multiple forms of birth control can even fail at the same time.

i was a failed-condom baby. so was my oldest cousin.

i believe in my mom's case, there was breaking. my cousin was the result of poor application.

I was a birth-control failed baby, My brother was a condom failed baby. I know quite a bit of friends, family and people that used condoms or birth-control or both and they got pregnant. Nothing is 100%, so eventually you will get pregnant by these methods. Hope this helps.

Hi ladies.I'm a guy but i need your advice.I'm so stressed because my girlfriend is pregnant and she says the child is mine.what happened is that we had sex on Sunday,30 June 2013(our first time and USED A CONDOM),and as we were chilling on Thursday 4 July,she became all sick(nausea,feeling bloated,intense sense of smell,weirdest of cravings). it happened the following day and i took her to the doctor.when she got out she told me that the tests said she is pregnant.now my question is,is it possible to have morning sickness 4 days after sex,and is it even possible to show that shes pregnant within 5 days?I'm not denying that the baby is mine,it is just that i want to be 100% sure because I have uncovered so much lies in the past few weeks and im starting to doubt if it is mine.I think the most important factors are that it was our first time having sex,and that we used a condom(it did not break).

Hi KG. I don't think you can get a positive test that soon after sex. Implantation needs to occur first for the hormone to be detected. Sorry and good luck!

kg.. i was sick within a week of conception. viciously, it was awful. the symptoms all hit me like a ton of bricks immediately. it's possible, but if you're unsure, there are tests.. they sell paternity tests at certain rite-aids now, if i've heard correctly.

from experience, condoms that seem completely fine may still be torn, juuuust enough. jus' sayin'.

good luck, kid.

The important factors here are not that she got pregnant from using a condom, that does happen. The main factor that is concerning here is that she got a positive pregnancy test 5 days later?! Who in the world that has even been ttc has gotten a positive that early?? I used to test twice a day when I was ttc with my last one and I didn't get a positive til at least 8 dpo. I just don't think this baby belongs to him!

I agree. I got extreme fatigue a few days after conception but I didn't get a positive until the following week. The baby is likely not his. This sounds like really poor timing. Did she just get out of a relationship before hooking up w/ you?

I was a BC failed baby and My brother was a Condom failed baby! I knew plenty of people that gotten pregnant from condoms or birth-control had failed! Nothing is 100% and anything is possible
