Healthline states that condoms are one of the most cost-efficient and effective ways to prevent s£xually transmitted infections (STIs) and unintended pregnancies. Yet, many men still use condoms incorrectly, which reduces their efficacy despite their widespread use. We'll talk about some frequent condom usage errors that guys should steer clear of in this article.
1. failing to check the expiration date
Using a condom that has passed its expiration date increases the likelihood that it will fail and shatter. It is crucial to verify the condom's expiration date before using one and to throw away those that have passed their prime. Condoms must also be kept dry, cold, and out of direct sunlight while not in use.
2. Not using the proper size
Several sizes of condoms are available, and using the incorrect size might cause discomfort, slippage, or rupture. To ensure a secure fit and optimal protection, it's critical to select the correct size for your peniş. It's worthwhile to try out several sizes from different condom brands to discover the one that fits you the best.
3. Incorrect application of the condom
The effectiveness of a condom depends on how it is applied. Not allowing enough space at the tip for semen to gather is the most typical error. If you don't do this, the condom can break, putting you at risk for STIs and pregnancy. The proper way to apply a condom is to squeeze the tip to form a reservoir and then roll it down to the base of the peni$.
4. Inadequate lubrication
Insufficient lubrication can cause condoms to tear or shatter. Using a water- or silicone-based lubricant can help lower the chance of condoms breaking during s£x because friction during s£x can cause them to do so. Because they might weaken latex condoms and raise the likelihood of breakage, oil-based lubricants should be avoided.
5. Removing a condom without holding onto the base
To prevent any spilling, it is essential to gently remove the condom after s£x. The condom may slip off and spill sèmen, though, because many men make the error of not holding onto the base of it when taking it off. A condom is removed by grasping the base and pulling it off. After removal, the condom is tied up and thrown away.
