Cómo usar un condón

Usar condones correctamente y cada vez que se mantienen relaciones sexuales ayuda a prevenir los embarazos no deseados y las ETS (enfermedades de transmisión sexual). 

Recuerda:

  • Usa condones de látex o de poliuretano. 
  • Revisa el condón y su envoltorio antes de usarlo. Asegúrate de que no contenga defectos, cortes ni rasgaduras y de que no haya caducado. 
  • No lleves condones dentro de la cartera o monedero donde llevas las tarjetas y/o el dinero. Eso los podría estropear tanto que dejarían de funcionar. 
  • Ponte el condón antes de empezar a mantener relaciones sexuales. 
  • Si no te han hecho la circuncisión, retráete el prepucio antes de ponerte el condón. 
  • Si vas a usar lubricante, asegúrate de que está hecho a base de agua o de silicona. Los lubricantes elaborados con otras sustancias pueden romper los condones.
