In this post, you’ll learn some of the most important condom mistakes you can’t afford to make.
And why you should avoid them at all costs.
How Effective Are Condoms?
How well a condom works depends a lot on whether you use it the right way.
When used properly, male condoms are about 98% effective at preventing pregnancy.
This means that in one year, 2 out of every 100 women whose partners always use condoms correctly will get pregnant.
That number rises to 18 out of every 100 women whose partners don’t use condom correctly every time.
Female condoms are about 95% effective when used properly.
They work only 79% of the time if you don’t use them right.
Condoms also greatly lower the chances that one person will pass an STD to the other, particularly if you wear one every time you have sex.
With that been said let’s quickly consider some mistakes you avoid while using condoms.
5 Condom mistakes you should never make
1. Not Checking The Condom Packet For Damages
2. Ensuring that there is no gap at the very end of the condom
According to Medicalnewstoday, It is recommended not to touch the tip of the condom at any time.
When a man ejaculates, there must be some room within the condom for the sperm to move around.
That purpose is intended for the reservoir that is located on the tip of the condom.
If you stay in this area, there is a significant probability that the condom may leak or break, which will raise the possibility that you and your partner will become sexually active together as well as the possibility of contracting an infection.
3. Delaying the Use of the Condom Condoms have a number of purposes in addition to preventing ejaculating.
You won’t get an infection from them, and it’s common knowledge that pre-cum increases a woman’s chances of conceiving a child when used by a woman.
Put the condom on before you start the act since even if you finish it, you haven’t finished the act yet.
4. Using Condoms With An Oil Lubricant
The vast majority of modern lubricants, whether they are based on water or silicon, are compatible with condoms.
However, there are hybrid lubricants that contain oil, and you must not use condoms with these types of lubricants since oil deteriorates latex.
When performing an erotic massage, you also need to be careful when using oils.
Regular massage oil is incompatible with condoms; however, intimate massage oil may be suitable for use with condoms; therefore, you should read the handbook or inquire about recommendations at the store before using it.
5. Picking The Wrong Condom
There is a wide variety of both types and sizes of condoms.
The inability to maintain an erection is one of the potential side effects of using a condom that is excessively restrictive in its fit.
In addition, if you select a condom that is too large for your needs, it may come off during sexual activity.
This not only defeats the point of wearing a condom, but it may also cause an erection to collapse.
