The precautions of the condoms you should know Condoms are a barrier method of contraception. There are male condoms and female condoms. A condom is used only one time it cannot be reused. A new condom should be used each time you have sex — and it must be used from start to finish each time you have sex to prevent pregnancy and sexually transmitted diseases (STDs). Never use oil-based lubricants such as mineral oil, petroleum jelly, or baby oil with condoms because these substances can break down the rubber. A used condom should be thrown in the garbage, not down the toilet. And if condoms ever seems dry, sticky, or stiff when it comes out of the package, or if it is past its expiration date, throw it away and use a new one. It’s a good idea to have some condoms at hand in case there is a problem with one. It’s best to store condoms in a cool, dry place and avoid the direct sunlight. When correctly used, latex and polyurethane condoms are effective against most STDs. Condoms do not protect against infections spread from sores on the skin not covered by a condom. For those having sex, condoms must always be used to protect against STDs although you have used another method of birth control. Abstinence (don’t have sex) is the only method that always prevents pregnancy and STDs. Female condoms supplier. OEM logo condoms factories and manufacturers. Email:
