MALE CONDOMS Dos & don'ts !


CONDOM Dos:

  • DO use only latex or polyurethane (plastic) condoms.

  • DO keep condoms in a cool, dry place.

  • DO put the condom on an erect (hard) penis before there is any contact with a partner’s genitals.

  • DO use plenty of lubricant with latex condoms if you find vaginal sex is uncomfortable, or that condoms tend to rip or tear. Don’t use oil-based products with latex condoms (see DON’TS for more on this). Water-based lubes are condom-friendly but might increase the risks of STIs with anal sex. Consider using silicone-based lubricants for anal intercourse.

  • DO hold the condom in place at the base of the penis before withdrawing (pulling out) after sex.

  • DO throw the condom away after it’s been used.


CONDOM DON’Ts:

  • DON’T use out of date condoms. Check the expiration date carefully. Old condoms can be dry, brittle or weakened and can break more easily.

  • DON’T unroll the condom before putting it on the erect penis.

  • DON’T leave condoms in hot places like your wallet or in your car.

  • DON’T use oil-based products, like baby or cooking oils, hand lotion or petroleum jelly (like Vaseline®) as lubricants with latex condoms. The oil quickly weakens latex and can cause condoms to break.

  • DON’T use your fingernails or teeth when opening a condom wrapper. It’s very easy to tear the condom inside. If you do tear a condom while opening the wrapper, throw that condom away and get a new one.

  • DON’T reuse a condom. Always use a new condom for each kind of sex you have.

  • DON’T regularly use lubricants with spermicide called nonoxynol-9 (“N-9”) as they may cause skin irritation or tiny abrasions that make the genital skin more susceptible to STIs.
