    Sooooo....does anybody know...

    Advertisements
    if condoms have expiration dates????

    I think we may have screwed up using at least a 3 year condom with a beat up looking wrapper! Yep, it was there so I figured why not? HA! I already think I know the answer... STOOPID STOOPID OF US! Pulling out isn't smart either though...

    I'm feeling a bit...weird...the past week. I've been having acute supernose and my boobs hurt. Things are tasting funny (one of the first preggo symptoms I had with Aiden!) Trying to not get too worked up over it because I know how powerful the mind is and the tricks it can play! Maybe I'm having a weird cycle....

    I'm SOOO tired of NOT being on birth control BUT I don't wanna have the xtra hormones raging through my body either.

    Going to pick up some tests tommorrow. Though I think it may be too soon to test. Who knows because someone doesn't write down her cycles!!


    Though if I am pregnant it would be a wonderful suprise!

    yeah they do!
    but if there is no more air bubble.. then you shouldnt risk using it regardless of the time.. could have a small tear.

    good luck with your test and i hope you get the answer you want!

    There should be an expiration date on each little package as well as on the box, if you have the box. And if you didn't store them in a nice, cool, dry location... you speed up the degree of degrade. If it was kept in a wallet in a back pocket, or a glove box you take almost a year off the expiration date b/c of heat.

    Like they have all said yep they expire. They always say don't use them if the wrapper is really beat up as well. Means little holes and tears could have occured.
