Proper condom usage - what is leaking out? Is it semen?
posted by anonymous to Health & Fitness (25 answers total)
My female partner and I think we're using the condom correctly, but each time there is something in her and on the condom's outside.
To put it on we close the tip with one hand, roll it down over the erect shaft to the base with the other, making sure there are no air bubbles.
I pull out right after I come, usually after 3 spurts of ejaculate. Today and last time the semen was in the last (near the tip) inch and the tip of the condom (though it doesn't all leak out), and there some "goo" on the outside and in my partner. The goo doesn't really smell/taste like semen, but sort of looks like it. The condom scent and taste sort of overpower everything, making it hard to tell.
We're freaking out about it being a bit of semen, and thus about pregnancy risk.
What else could it be? Should I pull out after one spurt? Is it possible the condom is too big/loose (Durex brand)? Is it just a mix of her lubrication and the condom's?
Not really looking for advice on other forms of birth control :)
