Can you be pregnant if the guy wears a condom and it does not break or have a hole in it?

Yes, you can get pregnant even if the condom is used following directions. Some semen may spill out of the open end of the condom, especially if the guy waits until his penis is soft before withdrawing it from your vagina. The instructions DO SAY to remove the penis while it is still rigid. If either of you get semen on your fingers from removing the condom and then touch your vagina, you have a change of introducing sperm into your vagina, which can result in pregnancy.
Always use a new condom every time you have penetration (anal, vaginal, oral). Remove the condom carefully, and wash both his penis and groin, and your lips and vagina to remove possible residual semen.
You should also use a spermicidal jelly applied inside your vagina to kill any sperm that do enter. Nonoxyl-9 is one spermicide, ask a pharmacist for suggestions.
Practice safe sex, kiddo. Please don't become a statistic.
