Condom Mistakes You Don't Want to Make ...

By Holly

You already know that you should be using condoms every time you have sex. But do you know anything else about them? Here are a few mistakes you don't want to make when having sex, brought to you by Health:

1 Forgetting to Check for Damages

Forgetting to Check for Damages Make sure you check the condom before you use it. If there's even a super small tear in it, then it isn't going to be effective.

2 Doubling up
Two isn't better than one. If you pile multiple condoms on top of each other, you're only going to increase the friction, and increase the chances of them both breaking.

3 Buying the Wrong Size

Buying the Wrong Size There are different sized condoms for a reason. You don't want to give your man one that is too small or too big. It needs to be just right.

4 Forgetting about Oral

Forgetting about Oral You can still get an STD during oral sex. That's why it's important to always use condoms, even when you're not planning on having vaginal sex.

5 Using the Wrong Lube

Using the Wrong Lube Oil based lube is dangerous to use with condoms. You need to buy lube that's meant to be used with latex.

6 Storing Them Improperly
Don't keep condoms in a packed wallet. If you do, then they'll get damaged easily.

7 Not Using One at All

Not Using One at All If you're sexually active, you need to carry condoms around. Otherwise, you're either going to end up with an STD or a baby.
