It might be obvious, but condoms are single use only. Never use more than one condom at a time. Reusing condoms may lead to cross infection so always change the condom between partners and sex acts i.e. vaginal, oral or anal to reduce the risk of HIV and Sexually Transmitted Infections (STI's). Loss of lubrication may increase the risk of the condom tearing, increasing the risk of pregnancy and STI's. Store in a cool, dry place away from direct sunlight. Always read the label. Use only as directed.
1. Check the expiry date printed on the condom foil – always. Do not use the condom if the expiry date has passed. If the date has faded, that’s not a good sign either! Open the condom wrapper and remove the condom carefully. Condoms are strong but they can be damaged by sharp fingernails, teeth or jewellery – so handle with care.
2. Make sure to put the condom on the erect penis before any sexual contact occurs. This will reduce the risk of unintended pregnancy and STI’s.
3. Check that the condom is the right way up – the roll needs to be on the outside so that it can be rolled downwards. Can’t roll it? Wrong way round.
4. Gently pinch the tip of the condom to push trapped air and make room for semen. Any excess air trapped in the condom may increase the risk of condom breakage. Plus, it’ll be much comfier this way.
5. Still pinching the tip of the condom, place the condom over the head of the penis and roll it down to the based of the erect penis. All the way. If you need the condom slipping or stretching stop and check the condom to avoid potential breakage.
6. Lifestyles® water-based or silicone-based lubricants and gels are recommended during foreplay and sexual intercourse, as they are formulated to increase comfort and pleasure. Lubrication may also reduce the risk of condom breakage. Do not use oil-based lubricant (such as massage oils, body lotions, baby oil, butter, margarine, petroleum jelly etc.) as these may weaken natural rubber latex or polyisoprene condoms. Some medications applied can damage condoms, so always check with your doctor or pharmacist. Always use a lubricant labelled as compatible with condoms.
7. After sex, and while the penis is still erect, carefully withdraw the penis. Hold the rim of the condom at the base of the penis to prevent any spillage of semen. Point the penis downwards and carefully slip the condom off.
8. Tie off the end of the used condom and wrap it in a tissue. Dispose of it thoughtfully and hygienically. Do not flush the condom down the toilet.
