How to put on a condom
Here is a guide on how to put on a condom. Before you start using a condom, check the date on the packet. Condoms that have expired cannot be used.
1. Open the package
Carefully open the package as shown in the diagram.
2. Roll the condom out
Roll the condom out about a half a centimetre and squeeze out the air in the tip between two fingers. This ensures that there will not be an air pocket in the condom and that the semen will collect in the tip of the condom.
3. Roll the condom on
Roll the condom on when the penis is erect.
The condom must be in place throughout intercourse to protect against sexually transmitted infections.
4. Use a lubricant
Use a lubricant if the vagina is dry or if you practise anal sex.
5. Hold around the condom when you pull out
Hold around the condom and pull out of the vagina/anus while the penis is still erect.
