 Contraception with condoms Use and safety

The best before date

Yes, even condoms do not last "forever". Maximum protection can only be guaranteed if the rubbers are not too old. Therefore, it is important to pay attention to the corresponding information on the packaging.

The right storage

Modern condoms are usually protected by robust packaging. However, this does not mean that they are invulnerable. Unfortunately, many users put too much trust in the stability of the outer packaging and carry the condoms in their wallet, backpack or trouser pocket. A bad idea. The largely constant friction can damage the rubber.

It is best to use the Condom store in a place that is not too warm and protected from light (accordingly, not on the windowsill).

Please rubbers in the right size!

Generally speaking, there is almost no (!) Peniswho is not wearing a condom equipped could become. The size of the "best piece" has long ceased to be an excuse here. On the contrary! Those who feel restricted by classic rubber sizes also have the option of XXL versions.

By the way, there are now also many manufacturers who rely on completely vegan production and correspondingly animal-free materials. The protection here is - of course - just as high as with the "normal" variant.

Allergies are rather rare

Most condoms are well tolerated. However, there are certainly men who develop skin intolerance. Admittedly: Itching, rashes and the like can severely limit the pleasure of sex - usually for everyone involved.

Should an allergy occur, however, it is definitely the wrong decision to assume that the use of rubbers is now generally "forbidden". Because: the different manufacturers often rely on different ingredients.

Just because one brand is not tolerated does not mean that all others would also cause pustules and co. Additional tip: usually Latex is responsible for the corresponding complaints. If you know that you are sensitive, you should choose latex-free rubbers from the outset.

Other important rules

Storage is optimal, size fits and the skin compatibility leaves nothing to be desired? Wonderful! Then it is now time to deal with the final "basic rules" for condom use. The following applies here:

  1. Use rubbers only once.
  2. Check condoms for any damage before use!
  3. Check in advance - depending on the sex practice - whether any lubricant used could influence the stability of the rubbers.
  4. Do not turn condoms "inside out" after putting them on for the first time.
  5. Be careful with jewellery and accessories with sharp, pointed edges. These can also damage the surface of the condom.

Generally speaking, stinginess and a willingness to compromise too much are definitely out of place when using condoms. In case of doubt, it is essential to replace the rubbers. Therefore: it is best to always use at least one "Verhüterli" have up their sleeves as a replacement!
