Hi.
Welcome to just answer. I am here to answer questions for education and information. I will respond shortly with an answer, or a question for you

Expert:  DrRussMD replied 3 months ago.

The condom is over 99% effective as long as it is intact and does not break, and is used properly.

Your risk of exposure in that case is less than 1%.

Even with exposure, with heterosexual sex the risk from one exposure is also low: 1% or less.

I hope this answers your question.
