How effective are spermicide condoms if we did not use it from the start?

Any unprotected vaginal intercourse carries the possibility of pregnancy. This is so as the pre-ejaculatory fluid (“pre-cum”) may have sperms.

If the concern is unwanted pregnancy, condoms with spermicide should be used before any vaginal penetrative sex. Having said that, condoms are never 100% preventive of conception.
