If the condom your partner is using is too small, it would probably break while being put on. So there's probably another reason why the condom is breaking, and it could be one or a combination of many things.

If you're using old condoms or if the packaging was broken, they can become dried out and deteriorate, and therefore more easily split or tear. Make sure the condom package has not broken and that it hasn't expired.

If there is not enough lubrication during sex, pressure builds up on the condom, which could cause it to break. To ensure sufficient lubrication, use water-based personal lubricants such as YES, a natural lubricant, or KY products. Avoid using oil-based lubricants as they can cause latex condoms to deteriorate. Also, don't use body lotion, petroleum jelly (both oil-based), or other items not intended for intercourse because they are not vagina-friendly.

Be sure the condom is applied properly and that there is a 'nipple' at the end of the condom (a space for the semen). The condom should roll up the penis easily and quickly. There is no need to pull or stretch the condom if it's properly applied and the right size.

If you are experiencing prolonged penetration, meaning penetration without pulling out for more than about three minutes, check the condom to be sure it's still in place. Intensity of movement can also dislodge a condom.

Most condoms these days come with a reservoir tip, if not, leaving space to collect the semen is useful.  However, when you or your partner are rolling the condom on, be sure to pinch this tip, and smooth any air down the shaft towards the rim so it escapes.  If you don't do this, the condom can definitely burst.

After being in relationship with Wilson for seven years,he broke up with me, I did everything possible to bring him back but all was in vain, I wanted him back so much because of the love I have for him, I begged him with everything, I made promises but he refused. I explained my problem to someone online and she suggested that I should contact a spell caster that could help me cast a spell to bring him back but I am the type that don't believed in spell, I had no choice than to try it, I meant a spell caster called Dr Zuma zuk and I email him, and he told me there was no problem that everything will be okay before three days, that my ex will return to me before three days, he cast the spell and surprisingly in the second day, it was around 4pm. My ex called me, I was so surprised, I answered the call and all he said was that he was so sorry for everything that happened, that he wanted me to return to him, that he loves me so much. I was so happy and went to him, that was how we started living together happily again. Since then, I have made promise that anybody I know that have a relationship problem, I would be of help to such person by referring him or her to the only real and powerful spell caster who helped me with my own problem and who is different from all the fake ones out there. Anybody could need the help of the spell caster, his email: spiritualherbalisthealing@gmail.com or call him +2349055637784 you can email him if you need his assistance in your relationship or anything.
