Try retrieving the condom

Position yourself in such a way that you can get full access to your vagina. You could stand up, be on your knees or put one leg on the toilet seat. Insert two fingers and try finding something slippery inside you. Should you fail, ask him to look for it as he’s got a better view and longer fingers to get it out.

Take the morning after pill

If you’re already on the pill then worry not, you should be protected from unwanted preganacies - however if you aren’t get an emergency contraceptive as chances are he had already ejaculated and now the condom is somewhere in your vagina.

Get medical help

If you fail to get it out then the last resort is to see a doctor because should it be left in there for too long it can cause an infection which will result in odour. A test of STDs is also needed to check if things are still as they should be.

Do a thorough clean up

Whether or not the condom came out as is or broken, it’s advisable that you do a thorough clean up to get rid of the bits of the condom and the latex build up, depending on how long it would have taken to come out.

Consider changing condom sizes

A constant repeat of this could be a sign that your man is wearing the wrong size of condoms. Explore the market and find one that’ll not slip during intercourse.
