How To Use A Condom To Protect Against STD's and Pregnancy

Updated: Mar 4, 2022

I wouldn't think that there'd be a lot of searches on this on how to put on the condom and how to use the condom but apparently, there is with lack of information that we are getting from our sex education classes. Nowadays it's actually one of the highest searched items on Google for subjects related to sex. Yes, people are looking online as to how to use a condom.

People wear condoms for a couple of different reasons. One they help prevent pregnancy and two they help prevent STDs and HIV. Most likely people are wearing a condom to protect them from both. Now male condoms are 98% effective compared to female condoms which are 95% effective however this is if the individual is actually using the condom correctly. If a person does not use a male condom correctly it can be ineffective about up to 87 87% and a female condom if not used correctly could be ineffective up to 79%. So it's always really good to make sure that you are using these to the best of your ability in order to get the full benefits out of them.

Condoms are not 100% guaranteed to work, because some condoms will rip some condoms will allow a little bit of semen to actually go through them or bodily fluids to go through them which can cause sexually transmitted diseases or pregnancies in some small cases.

Condoms are the number one source to prevent STDs and pregnancies do the effect of their effectiveness and the cost of them they're really cheap to get and very easy to get in fact you can even get them off of our website.

Now one thing that you want to make sure of is that all condoms have an expiration date printed on the package. You do not want to use ones that have passed the expiration date. If you do you will run the risk of it being extremely less effective by almost 50% or even more. So be sure to check the expiration date listed on the package.

One thing you want to do is you want to wash your hands before opening the condom. When you open the wrapper to the condom make sure you feel the actual condom in the package and when you tear the wrapper you tear it up at the corner not to tear it next to the actual condom to make sure that you don't rip it.

Make sure to watch your fingernails too as you're pulling it out of the package you want to be able to hold it by the ring and be careful not to touch the tip with your finger.

Now the second thing that you want to do is you basically now want to take the ring with two of your fingers and hold it in and place it on the top of the penis and then roll the rest of the condom down the shaft of the penis to the base.

Make sure to use lubrication and preferably water-based lube, or you can run the risk of ruining the condom and you will be at risk.
