Condoms are a "barrier" method of contraception. They are made of very thin latex rubber , polyurethane or polyisoprene and are deed to prevent pregnancy by stopping sperm from meeting an egg.
Make sure that your penis does not touch your partner's genital area before you have put on a condom — semen can come out of the penis before full ejaculation you have come. If this happens, or if semen gets into your partner's vagina during vaginal sex while using a condom, you may need emergency contraception. You should also consider having an STI test. Condoms come lubricated to make them easier to use, but you may also like to use additional lubricant lube.
This is particularly advised for anal sex to reduce the chance of the condom splitting. You can use any type of lubricant with polyurethane condoms that are not made of latex. However, if you're using latex or polyisoprene condoms, do not use oil-based lubricants — such as lotion, body oil or petroleum jelly Vaseline. This is because oil-based lubricants can damage the condom and make it more likely to split.
Some condoms come with spermicide on them. You should avoid using this type, or using spermicide as a lubricant, as it does not protect against STIs and may increase your risk of infection.

You can use emergency contraception up to 5 days after unprotected sex when sperm entered the vagina. You can use another form of contraception, such as the contraceptive pill or implant, for extra protection against pregnancy. However, other forms of contraception will not protect you against STIs. You'll still be at risk of STIs if the condom breaks. Find a sexual health clinic. This means they've been tested to the required safety standards.

How to use a condom Take the condom out of the packet, being careful not to tear it with jewellery or fingernails. Do not open the packet with your teeth. Place the condom over the tip of the erect penis.
If there's a teat on the end of the condom, use your thumb and forefinger to squeeze the air out of it. Gently roll the condom down to the base of the penis. If the condom will not roll down, you may be holding it the wrong way round.
If this happens, it may have sperm on it, so throw it away and try again with a new one. After sex, take out the penis while it's still erect — hold the condom on at the base of the penis while you do this. Remove the condom from the penis, being careful not to spill any semen. Throw the condom away in a bin, not down the toilet. Make sure your penis does not touch your partner's genital area again. If you have sex again, use a new condom.Well what do u want
