- Latex condoms, when used properly, are very effective in preventing unintended pregnancies and STDs. People who are allergic to latex can use polyurethane condoms instead.
- Oil-based lubricants will weaken the condom and cause it to break.
- Always pinch the tip of the condom before unrolling it.
- After sex, a man should withdraw from his partner immediately, holding onto the base of the condom.
- Condom can be used only once! Always use a new one if passion strikes twice.
- Condoms kept in warm places, like a wallet or glove compartment can weaken from the heat. An outside coat pocket or at home in a cool, dry place are better places to keep condoms.
- Most condoms are good for three to five years. Check the date printed on the box or condom wrapper.
