Proper Condom Storage

Proper Condom StorageThere are a few things to keep in mind when having sex... safe sex. Most importantly the proper use of contraception, and I'm talking CONDOMS!
We all know a condom can break. We all know that serious consequences can arise when a condom is not used properly. We can not be lazy and stick our heads in the sand when our sexual health and general lifestyle is at risk. Condom safety and storage are of utmost importance when preventing STD infections and unwanted pregnancy.
Here are some tips to help keep your condoms fresh so you can keep getting it in:
  • Always store your condoms in a cool and dry area. The bathroom is known to be very hot during shower time and this can cause your condom to break down and become weak.
  • Do not store in the sunlight and do not try to use them in water.
  • Follow the expiration date. Condoms have a shelf life and will become brittle with age.
  • Do not store your condoms in your wallet or pocket. Friction from movement will cause them to break down.
  • Follow the "first in, first out" rule. Use your oldest condoms first, assuming they have not surpassed their expiration date.
  • If a condom is discolored (generally yellow or white spots), brittle or appearing to break, throw them away!
Follow these simple tips and you'll have a condom that is (nearly) guaranteed not to break!
