Note when using condoms for men and women

1. Pay attention when taking male condoms

Before taking a method of birth control with a condom, you need to:

Always take a condom before having sex
Check the packaging and expiry date of condoms carefully before wearing
Always make sure the bag is not torn or damaged
Store condoms in a cool, dry place
get a latex or polyurethane condom
Use a water-based or silicone-based lubricant to avoid tearing the condom.
as well as absolutely NOT:

Do not keep condoms in your wallet as heat and friction will damage them.
Do not use nonoxynol-9 (a spermicide), as it has the potential to cause irritation.
Do not use oil-based products such as baby oil, lotion, wax or cooking oil as they can cause condoms to break.
Do not take more than 1 condom at a time.
Never reuse condoms.
