How do you check condom is leaked or not?

To make sure your condom is still intact, first press on the wrapper—you should feel a little cushion of air. If you can feel the air cushion it means that the outside of the wrapper has not been damaged or punctured. Next, while still pressing on the wrapper, feel for the slip-slide feeling of the lube.

Can sperm come out from the bottom of the condom?

Yes, sperm can sometimes leak out of the opening of a condom if, for example, your partner leaves the condom on after their erection goes away. If their penis goes soft with the semen still inside the condom, the condom will be loose, and precum and semen can get out, putting you at risk for pregnancy and STDs.

How do you know if the condom worked?
