Condoms are one of the best inventions and they play a big role in protecting people from diseases such HIV as well as preventing the risk of pregnancies which are not planned.Make sure to check the condom’s expiration date, and do not use it if past that date.
Side effects of condoms
1.Condoms can trigger a latex allergy.
Reactions to latex can include rash, hives, runny nose, and in severe cases tightening of the airways and loss of blood pressure. If you or your partner is allergic to latex, a polyurethane or lambskin condom may be an alternative.
2.Condoms aren’t foolproof.
There’s still a risk of getting an STI or becoming pregnant when using a condom, especially if it breaks or comes off during sex.
What do you need to know about buying and storing male condoms?
1.Keep the condom wrapped in its original package until you are ready to use it. Store it in a cool, dry place out of direct sunlight. Check the expiration date on the package before using.
2.Don’t keep rubber (latex) condoms in a glove compartment or other hot places for a long time. Heat weakens latex and increases the chance that the condom will break.
