You are misusing condoms! – Napidoktor

Condoms also provide protection against unwanted pregnancies and sexually transmitted diseases, but should be used appropriately.

As evident as this may sound, we can read in the February issue of Sexual Health that condom use errors are more common than you might think.

Richard Crosby, a professor at the University of Kentucky who was also involved in the study, explained that the proper use of condoms is a problem for many. According to a WHO survey, using a condom with care We can achieve 98 percent protection against unwanted pregnancies, however, the “Slipped in” 15 percent of pregnancies turn out to have used condoms for the couple, only obviously badly.

Researchers at the Kinsey Institute at Indiana University, led by Stephanie Sanders, collected the most common condom use errors dating back to 1995. To this end, a total of fifty studies from fourteen countries were reviewed, and respondents ranged from married couples to college students. they were on a very wide scale up to sex workers.

One of the most common mistakes turned out to be that the man puts on the condom too late – after the act has started – but those who put it on in time are not always well. It is a common mistake to unwind the gum in advance, not just on your penis, or that they do not leave enough space at the end of the rubber where the semen can collect. And a very large proportion of respondents did not usually check for condom damage before use.

The survey also revealed that condoms had been torn during use, among other things, which could also be due to improper use or storage. Oil-based lubricants, for example, are harmful to condoms.

Experts believe that in the light of the above, it is important that future condom campaigns also address issues related to proper use, as this is the only way to achieve their real purpose.
