Condoms are one of the most effective and cheap ways to keep pregnancy and sexually transmitted infections (STIs) from happening. They are also very easy to use. Then, they only work if you use them consistently and do them right.
This article talks about the things you can do wrong, and how to use a condom the right way to make sure it doesn't break.
I didn't check the expiration date.
There are usually expiration dates on the boxes of most condoms. It will start to break down and become less effective at protecting against STIs and pregnancy if you use it after its expiration date.
The Wrong Condom:
They come in different types and sizes. Condoms that are too tight can cut off blood flow, which can cause erectile dysfunction. There's also the risk of the condom breaking during sex, which is not only against the point of wearing a condom, but can also make erectile function go out of the window.
Making a mistake when you open the Condom Wrapper
Before you open the wrapper, feel for the rib of the condom that is inside the package. Push this to the side so that when you open it, you don't also tear the condom. When you open a condom, don't use scissors or anything sharp, even your teeth.
To not check for any visible damage
If you don't pay attention, a condom could break without you realizing that it did. So, make sure you check the condom package for any damage before you put it in your mouth. if the bag is already open, torn or has any holes in it.
When you wear it too late.
You need to put on a condom before you touch your partner, so you don't get in trouble. In order to protect yourself from STIs and pregnancy, you need to put on a condom right before you climax. If you only put it on right before you climax, fluids are likely to have already been exchanged.
Not leaving a space at the end.
When you climax, the space at the end of the condom is meant to hold the semen so that they don't fall out. Leaving this space means that there are a lot of chances that the condom will spill or break, which could lead to infections or your partner becoming pregnant if you do not.
Putting the Wrong Lubricant in
A lubricant is a substance that is made up of oil, silicone, or water. It helps to cut down on friction. Don't use oil-based lubricants with condoms, because they can get in the way. Oil weakens the material the condom is made of, which can cause the condom to break, and it can also cause the condom to leak. There are condoms that come with silicone or water-based lubricants, so you can use them with them.
