Condoms provide a safeguard to sexually active people against HIV and other sexually transmitted diseases (STDs), and also serve as a powerful method of birth control. However, in order to ensure their effectiveness in preventing unwanted pregnancy and STDs, it is important to understand how to use them properly.

Many men use condoms on daily basis, but are still unaware of the correct method to wear them. Also, laziness and unawareness of the proper method of removing condoms can prove to be costly affair as it can lead to unwanted pregnancy and other sexually transmitted diseases. Let us know the best methods of removing condoms:
Ensure to remove the condom while the penis is still hard. Not doing so can cause the rubber of the condom to entangle resulting in the release of the semen inside the vagina.
Take precaution while withdrawing the condom. Hold it from the base and make sure it doesn’t tear during withdrawl.

Avoid the bad habit of throwing the condom carelessly on the floor of the room after use.
Wash your penis properly after disposing the condom to clean the spilled semen that might have accidently landed.

At times, couples forget these basic after-sex procedures in the heat of the moment. Neglecting them can lead to several complications and problems. While steamy sex offers an enjoyable experience, it is also important to keep safety in mind. Stay safe, use condoms for sex!
