Side Effects of Condoms

Condoms are used for preventing against unwanted pregnancies and sexually transmitted diseases.

They are usually made from latex. Despite the great benefits condoms have to offer like inexpensive, convenient and safe protection, the side effects cannot be ignored. Know them to be prepared for avoiding the complications.

Positive Side Effects of Condoms

  • Protects against STDs, including HIV
  • Cheap and easy to get a hold of
  • No prescription necessary
  • May help with premature ejaculation

Negative Side Effects of Condoms

  • Latex Allergy - Unless you're allergic to latex, condoms cause no physical side effects. only 1 or 2 out of 100 people are allergic, and if you happen to be one of them, you can use a plastic condom instead.
  • Sensitivity to the Lubricant - Some people may be sensitive to certain brands of lubricant. So, if the lube bugs you or your partner, try another brand
  • Some guys complain that condoms reduce sensitivity
  • Acquiring other STDs - Condoms are proven highly effective against HIV and reduce the risk of other diseases, such as syphilis, chlamydia, gonorrhea and HPV. However, they do not afford protection against sexually transmitted diseases that can affect the outer layers of the skin, such as scabies infections and molluscum contagiosum. The American Social Health Association notes that although condoms can reduce the risk of genital herpes, they don’t protect every part of the skin in which the herpes virus can asymptomatically shed and be transmitted to an infected sexual partner.
