Male condoms are birth control methods used by men. It is put onto his penis before having sex. The condom catches the sperm when he ejaculates, preventing it from entering the woman’s body. Condoms are made from latex and polyurethane and, apart from preventing pregnancy, are also the best protection against STD’s including AIDS.
Condoms are not at all expensive and are available from pharmacies and supermarkets to men of all ages without a prescription. Condoms are also available free from family planning clinics.
Latex condoms should not come into contact with anything greasy prior to use as this weakens the rubber, which could cause the condom to break. Condoms do not break very often, but a spermicidal gel or foam can be used as extra protection.
Condoms are effective a birth control as long as they are put on before the erect penis enters the vagina, so it is a good idea to keep a supply handy at all times. Do not be tempted to skip using a condom at any time.
