  • Condoms are highly effective when used correctly.

    o put a condom on:

    1. With one hand, pinch the tip of the condom to leave room for the ejaculate.

    2. With the other hand, roll the condom to the base of the penis or object.

    3. Continue using this hand to guide any air bubbles out of the condom.

    4. Add lube to the outside of the condom to avoid excess friction that may cause breakage.

    After the action:

    1. Hold the base of the condom as you pull out to avoid slippage.

    2. Remove the condom and throw away in the trash, not the toilet.

  • Yes. You could be pregnant. Again. Breastfeeding is not a contraceptive. Condoms are not a perfect contraceptive. Get a test and think about names.
