Would you trust a dollar store condom?

I didn't buy any (I'm prego, what is the point? lol), but I saw them hanging there as I was checking out with my bonbons and this question popped into my head. If it helps make it easier, they were two for a dollar or 65 cents each.

  • yes. its all about expiration date, not where you purchase it. its not like grocery store condoms are less proven to break than a dollar store condom.

  • lol...I saw the title of this and started's too funny...I don't think it really matters the cost of depends on the manufacturer and like the other person said, the expiration date. Plus, no matter what, they're still only 99.9% effective(just like the ones that cost more) But we don't use condoms(I get awful infections when we used them so now that we're married theres no real point....yet)

  • No, they don't do very well with storing their products, refreshing stock, and keeping certain materials away from sunlight, such as condoms.

  • Not condoms, but my doctor told me the pregnancy tests are the best ones around. If you look at the pregnancy tests at the dollar store and one from Walgreens, they are made from the same company.

  • Yes. I started having sex when I was a kid and they held me over.
    Didn't get pregnant until my honeymoon.
