Use condoms

  • 1

    Keep your condoms safe.Condoms can become brittle and brittle if you don't store them properly. Condoms that have been exposed to heat or light can tear more easily. [1]
    • Don't keep condoms in your pocket, wallet, or glove box. If you think something might work out, put some condoms in your wallet or car right before you go out. But don't leave them there for days or weeks.
    • Store condoms in a cool, dry place out of direct sunlight.
    • Leave condoms in their packaging until you are ready to use them.

    Take a close look at the condom packaging.Before buying condoms, be sure to check the expiration date on the box. You should also double-check the date on the individual packaging before using a condom. When it's expired, throw it away. Use neveran expired condom. It could tear or burst.[2]
    • Check the individual packaging for any obvious signs of holes or tears. If there is a tear or hole in the packaging, discard the condom and use a new one.
    • If the condom is sticky, brittle, or looks discolored, throw it away and use a new one. [3]

    Put on the condom before your penis has even touched your partner's genitals.Men produce a fluid known as “pre-ejaculate” (pleasure drops) that can transmit sexually transmitted diseases. In some cases, it also contains sperm, which can lead to pregnancy (although this is unlikely). So: wrap him up before you get down to business. [4]
    • You should also put on a condom before oral sex, anal sex, or oral-anal contact. STDs can be transmitted through oral sex, so it is important that you use a condom during these activities as well. A condom can be cut open to protect a woman's vagina during oral sex or to protect the anus during oral-anal contact.
    • It is also a good idea to put on a condom before masturbating each other. This will prevent body fluids from your partner's genitals or mouth from getting onto your hands.
    • If you are using a sex toy, you should also use it with a condom. The materials some of these toys are made of are not always safe for body contact (plastics, for example, may contain phthalates). Sex toys can also be difficult to clean, which means bacteria can settle there. This is especially true for toys made from a porous material.

    Open the condom packaging at the perforated tear-off edge.Push the condom away from the edge you want to tear it open and use the tear-off edge. These are the jagged edges on either side of the package that are made to tear quickly and easily.
    • Don't let yourself get carried away by your passion. Do not tear the foil with force and do not use scissors, teeth, machetes or other sharp instruments to open a condom package! There is a risk of damaging the condom yourself. A broken condom does not protect against pregnancy or sexually transmitted diseases. [5]
    • If it's your last condom and you break it, the fun is over!

    Notice how the condom is rolled up.This can be difficult, especially when it's dark. But it's safest to check it by eye so you don't risk rolling the condom down too far or tearing it with your fingers. When the condom is properly rolled up, it will have a lip or edge around the edge. When it's upside down, the edge is smooth. You can use your fingers to help you: [6]
    • Place the condom on your thumb, but don't roll it off. Let it sit there like a little hat.
    • Use your index finger to slide your index finger down the side of the condom, from the tip to the edge.
    • If your finger gets caught on the edge, it is properly curled. If your finger is loosely sliding down the edge, it's curled up from the inside.
    • If the condom is rolled up from the inside, hold the condom by the edge so that the upside-down tip is toward your mouth. Blow on the tip so that it turns the right way round.
    • Caution: do not unroll the condom as this will reduce its effectiveness and also make it much more difficult to put on.

    Make sure that the reservoir at the tip of the condom is facing the right way. This reservoir should already be at the very tip of the condom, but it may have been twisted at times during the packaging process. Make sure that the reservoir is oriented so that the rest of the condom is away from it pathrolls.

    Lubricate it.Make sure to add a small drop of lube (water-based) to the reservoir. This will make it easier to put on the condom, especially if you are not circumcised. [7]But make sure that it is really only a small drop so that you still leave enough space in the reservoir for the sperm.
    • Sluggish no Lotion, baby oil, petroleum jelly or an oil-based lubricant, as this would weaken and impair the latex![8]

    Make sure the penis is fully erect.A condom should always sit firmly on the penis and not have any tight or loose areas. If you roll it onto a penis that is not fully erect, it will not sit properly and will more easily fall or tear during sex. [9]
    • The condom should transfer from the package to your genitals relatively quickly. Do not unpack the condom until you are fully erect and ready to use. Never try to use a condom a second time.

    Press that entire Reservoir together at the top of the condom. This will prevent an air bubble from forming when you wear it, reduce the likelihood of it rupturing, and give the semen plenty of room during ejaculation. [10]

    Roll the condom over your penis.The condom should roll easily along the length of the limb. If it turns out that you are trying to unroll the condom the wrong way round, then throw it away and start all over again.[11]An erect penis produces a liquid (pleasure drops) that can contain sperm even before ejaculation. If a condom has been exposed to this liquid, if you turn it over and put it on again, it can lead to pregnancy or the transmission of STIs. To put on the condom, follow these steps:[12]
    • Squeeze the reservoir with one hand and place the condom on the tip of the erect limb. If necessary, you can use your other hand to push the pubic hair to one side.
    • Then gently roll the condom along the entire length of the penis, smoothing out any air bubbles that may appear.
    • Follow the same steps to put a condom on a sex toy.

    Apply lube to the condom if necessary.A lubricant not only reduces the risk of damaging the condom, it also reduces friction during sex and thus increases pleasure. Some lubricants also contain spermicides, which can further reduce the risk of pregnancy. However, spermicides can increase your risk of transmitting an STD. If your condom is not yet wet, apply the lubricant to both the condom and your partner. This is particularly recommended for anal sex.
    • Don't apply too much lube as this can cause the condom to fall off. A bit of friction is also necessary to be stimulated.
    • Again, wear never put an oil- or petrolatum-based lubricant on a latex condomas this can damage the condom.[13] Water-based and silicone-based lubricants are safe to use with latex, but water-based lubricants are easier to wash off and won't stain your sheets.

    Check the condom for cracks every now and then as you use it. If a condom bursts or falls off during sex, replace it immediately and consider using an emergency contraceptive, such as the morning-after pill. [14] Emergency contraception (or "the morning after pill") prevents pregnancy prematurely by delaying ovulation or preventing the eggs from fertilizing - it is not an "abortion pill". [15]

    Change the condom if you switch between different types of sex.For example, if you're switching from anal sex to vaginal sex, you should switch condoms to reduce the risk of infection. For example, E. coli bacteria from the rectum can cause bladder infections [16]or cause a severe vaginal infection. If the penis goes from the anus to the mouth, it can cause a serious stomach infection.
    • You should also swap the condom if you use it on a sex toy that you share with your partner. In short, your body fluids are on the condom, so you should replace it before sharing the toy.[17]

    Pull out the penis and remove the condom immediately after ejaculation. Take the bottom of the condom in your hand and pull it off, being careful not to let it slip or leak. Do not leave the condom on until the penis becomes flaccid, as this could cause it to fall off and stay in your partner. [18]

    Discard the condom discreet.Tie the top in a knot to prevent leakage, wrap it in toilet paper or a tissue, and toss it in a garbage can.
    • Don't flush condoms down the toilet. Most sewage treatment plants can't dispose of them, and it could clog your toilet as well.[19]
