condom breaks leave a small tear or hole?

User Profile
dear doctor

I wanted to ask when a condom breaks, will it leave a small tear or hole? or will it break entirely leaving the head of the penis exposed?

Thank you for asking!
that answer to that question depends on extent of breakage.It might be a simple tear to complete exposure.Any thing from which a single sperm can ooze out would be considered a break and result in likelihood of conception. Failure of condoms rate is 10 percent on average and torn condoms make it 30 to 40.. getting an emergency contraception like plan b with in 72 to 96 hours is advised. Meanwhile visit our sexual health centre for further guidance. Consult a gynecologist for further management if need be.
