Condoms are one of the most cheapest method of contraception. Couple use the condom during sexual activity to prevent from unwanted pregnancy and different types of STDs (sexual transmitted diseases). Both male and female use the condom during the sexual activity. The condom which is available for men are different from the condom which is available for women. A male condom is generally made with latex and men wear it on the penis. A female condom is generally made with polyurethane and women insert it into its vagina.
While using the condom, men and women should used the condom in a correct manner otherwise it cause the unwanted pregnancy and STIs. Before using the condom it is important for couples to read the instruction about how to installed. Condoms are of two types lubricated and non lubricated. Couple can use any types of condom during sexual intercourse.
Before starting the sexual activity, it is important for couple to wear the condom. First check the packet of condom whether it is expired or not. If it get expired then select the another condom. Open the packet carefully, so that the condom does not get damage. It is important for both male and female to apply lots of personal lubricant near the genital area before wearing the condom. Couple can also apply personal lubricant on the condom.
First we discuss how male wear the condom. After apply the lubricant men should check the back and front of the condom. Men can place the condom at the tip of the glans of the penis. Now men can slowly roll the condom at the base of the penis. After wearing the condom men can easily involve in the sexual penetration. Once the ejaculation occurs, male partner can slowly pull his penis out from his partner vagina and remove the condom from the penis.
If female partner use the condom during the sexual activity then it is important for them to wear the condom in a proper manner. Most of the female condom are already lubricated, so no need to reapply the personal lubricant again and again. Before wearing the female condom, women should find the outer ring and inner ring. Once the female partner can find the outer and inner ring then they squeeze the inner ring and insert the inner ring up to the cervix into the vagina. The outer ring is hang outside the vagina. After the sexual activity, women should remove the condom slowly and carefully so that semen does not come out.
During sexual activity, if couple use condom then they should take some precaution also. The most important things about condom is to check its expiration date. If couple use the expired condom then there is possibility that the condom get break during sexual intercourse. While opening the packet of the condom, couple should avoid using the teeth, scissors or other pointed device. Before taking the condom out from the packet, people should cut their nails properly. If couple use the latex condom then avoid using the oil based lubricant because oil based lubricant breaks the latex condom.
If men use the condom during sexual activity then it is very important for them to select the correct size of the condom. If condom is too big or too small then the risk of breaking the condom get increase. While wearing the condom if men or women wear the condom wrong then in this case remove that condom and use the fresh one. After the sexual activity, do not flush the condom to the toilet. Wrap the used condom with paper and throw it into the dustbin. Do not keep the condom with insect repellent or any other volatile substance and also avoid the direct sunlight. Always store the condom in the cool and dry place.
The couple should avoid using the expired condom. If they use the expired condom then the risk of breaking the condom get increase which may cause the unwanted pregnancy and many STDs.
