Also called: “Protection”, “Glove”, “Rubber”.
A male condom is a thin rubber tube worn over a man’s penis before sex while a female condom is a thin rubber pouch worn inside a woman’s vagina. Both condoms act as barriers to contain semen from entering the vagina and as protection against infection during sex.
The two main types of condoms are male and female condoms.
Males and females can use a condom safely except those with severe allergic reaction to latex.
Condoms are designed to be used once.
Always read the package and check expiration date before use. Do not use a male and a female condom at the same time as this can break the condoms. Use a new condom everytime you switch positions from vaginal, anal, or oral sex.
If the condom broke after sex, let your partner know and she’ll need to use a back-up birth control pill. Both of you may choose to get tested for STIs (Sexually Transmitted Infections).
Condoms are very accessible and easy to use.
It increases the possibility of preventing both partners from getting STIs (Sexually Transmitted Infections).
You only need to use it when you have sex.
