All about condoms

Condoms are called barrier methods of birth control because they put up a block, or barrier, which keeps the sperm from reaching the egg. It is made of latex or polyurethane. Male condoms are 86 to 98% effective at preventing pregnancy. Condoms can only be used once. You can buy them at a drug store. Always keep condoms in a cool, dry place. If you keep them in a hot place (like a wallet, or glove compartment of a car), the latex breaks down, causing the condom to tear or break. The condom is to be worn only on an erect penis, and just before intromission (penetration). It is packed with its borders rolled up. It is to be unrolled over the erect penis, till it is fully opened and covering the erect penis. There is a small pocket at the tip of the condom. It is given for the semen to get collected after ejaculation. This pocket may be pinched to avoid trapping of air at the time of wearing the condom. When putting the condom on the penis you must avoid tearing the condom or putting a hole in it with fingernails, a ring, or anything sharp.

A person infected with HIV (or any other Sexually Transmitted Disease) or likely to be infected, should be aware that a condom can not completely eliminate the risk of transmission of HIV / STDs to themselves or to others. Condom covers ONLY your penis. Scrotums, groins and area around penis remain uncovered / unprotected. Any abrasion, invisible scratch, skin infection in these areas can transmit HIV (or others STDs) if either of the partners is infected.

'Delay' condoms
Delay condoms are pre-lubricated with anesthetic jelly. Anesthetic jelly is expected to reduce the perception of sensations on the penis, thus helping people who experience early ejaculation to have a longer duration of intercourse. However, it does not work in a large number of cases.

Desensitization achieved with the help of the chemicals can damage the delicate parts of the penis. There is also the danger that this synthetic anesthetic effect could lead to intercourse being more violent. Such sexual acts tend to get aggressive and thus can be harmful for the sensitive and delicate genital parts of both the partners. Some people also experience irritation and / or itching due to allergy or hypersensitivity to such jellies.

Fear of condom
Some women fear that if a condom comes off during intercourse, it might get lost inside their body. If a condom does come off when a couple has sexual intercourse and slips into the vagina, the woman can easily reach into her vagina with her fingers and pull it out. It does not enter the uterus or the body. The vagina is almost like a blind pouch with a very narrow collapsed passage into the uterus which cannot allow the condom to go beyond that point. Moreover, a condom is too large an object to get lost into the vagina.
