Condoms are a commonly used contraceptive device. It is a sheath or covering which fits over a man’s penis, and which is closed at one end. Mostly it is the male condom that is used. A type of female condom is also available. It is a female condom, or vaginal sheath, which is used by a woman and fits inside the vagina.Use of Condoms is very important in the prevention of Sexually Transmitted Diseases.
Male condom is made of latex or polyurethane. Latex condoms are more reliable. Most of the condoms are lubricated.  Some condoms are not lubricated at all, some are lubricated with a silicone substance, and some condoms have a water-based lubricant. The lubrication on condoms aims to make the condom easier to put on and more comfortable to use. It can also help prevent condom breakage. Some condoms and lubricants contain spermicide.
When using only put on a condom once there is a partial or full erection. If the penis is not circumcised, pull back the foreskin before rolling on the condom. You need to use a new condom every time you have sexual intercourse. Never use the same condom twice. When you have ejaculated or finished having sex, withdraw the penis before it softens. Make sure you hold the condom against the base of the penis while you withdraw, so that the semen doesn’t spill.All used condoms should be wrapped in tissue or toilet paper and thrown in the bin. Condoms should not be flushed down the toilet as they may cause blockages in the sewage system.
