Patient : I have been practicing natural family planning (NFP) in addition to using condoms. My NFP instructor said that condoms actually have a higher failure rate than the literature reports, since failure rate studies are done on fertile as well as unfertile women; thus if I have sex with a condom during fertile days, and don't get pregnant, then I am probably infertile. Is she right?
