Here’s some useful information on condoms so you know all about them before you consider starting to use them.
Sometimes condoms can split or come off during sex if they have been used incorrectly. It is important to seek medical advice to discuss your options. If you are not using other contraceptives you may be at risk of pregnancy and you should get yourself tested for STI.
If you have recently had unprotected sex, you may need emergency contraception. Seek advice straight away from your school nurse, GP or local sexual health clinic.
