The following is information that should be given to clients
regarding correct use of the male condom.
Open the package carefully to avoid tearing the condom. To
prevent sperm or microorganisms from entering the womans
reproductive tract, there should be no genital contact before
a condom is put on. The condom should be unrolled directly onto
the erect penis. Be sure to unroll it all the way to the base
of the penis.
After ejaculation, withdraw the penis from the vagina while
the penis is still erect. Hold onto the rim of the condom while
removing the penis to help prevent the condom from slipping
off and the semen spilling into the vagina. After the condom
is removed, genital contact should be avoided since this could
allow residual sperm or STD microorganisms on the glans or in
the urethra to enter the woman.
To properly dispose of a condom, put it in a trash container
or bury it. It should not be flushed down a toilet.
