Oh no! It came off… What’s going on?
To avoid the condom slipping off and staying inside after sex, it’s essential that the condom is held on the shaft of the penis during withdrawal.
A penis ‘shrinks’ from its erect size and shape when returning to its flaccid state.
If the condom does slip off and stay inside after sex, this will make using it irrelevant for that particular act of intercourse – and increases the risks of pregnancy and/or infection.
