2. Leaving no space at the tip of the condom

That space is for the semen to stay. Not leaving enough space increases the chances of the condom breaking.

3. Not checking the condom before using it

It’s very important to check the condition of the condom before you put it on. Chances of you using a condom that’s broken is huge, which in turn is VERY risky!

4. Using oil or creams as lube with latex condoms

Not every kind of lube goes well with latex condoms. You definitely don’t want to experiment with oil or other kinds of creams. You might end up with some skin irritation or rash! Make sure you are using water based, silicone or glycerin based lubes.

5. Not checking the expiry date

Yes! Condoms expire too. It is always better to check the date before using it. Condoms with lubes, sometimes have a shorter life.

6. Wearing two condoms

Wearing two condoms does not guarantee double protection. In fact, it can cause a lot of friction resulting in the breakage of both. Hence, using one condom is more than enough.

7. Wearing the condom even after you’re done

It is normal to cuddle after sex but make sure you let him remove the condom. Letting it stay on might result in the ejaculation hardening or the sperms mixing with pre-ejaculate fluid which could lead to impregnation in the next round of foreplay!

9. Not using female condoms

Female condoms are as effective as male condoms and provide equal amount of protection against pregnancy and sexually transmitted diseases. The only problem is that people don’t know much about these and hence they’re not widely used.
