Condoms as birth control method are considered to be the most effective. Research has proven that if used properly, condoms can prevent pregnancy in 98 percent cases. Even when not used properly the success rate of condoms as birth control was found to be as high as 86 percent. Breakage or spoilage of condoms can render them ineffective and it has been estimated that around 2 to 6 percent may break or fall off during sex. If you happen to pick a pack of condom after its expiry date, needless to say the condoms would have been spoiled or become too brittle to sustain the strain of an intercourse.
Condoms are considered the cheapest and most effective birth control method. Since there are no hormonal changes in the body of men or women with its use, the advantage of using it is clear. You just need to be a bit more aware of it breaking when you are in the act. If you notice it before ejaculation, immediately pull out and replace the broken condom with a new one. If already ejaculated, wash the semen with soap and warm water to lessen chances of pregnancy. You should also get your partner tested for pregnancy.
