If you use protection ALWAYS, the chance is very low BUT keep in mind the following must be in place:
1. Good quality condom and correctly used ( do not open wrapping with your teeth and place it correctly on the penis)
2. Check the expiry date
3. Use only lubrication recommended by the condom company and nothing else.
