Tips for using condoms

• BE sure to a have a condom before you need one.

• ALWAYS use condoms for vaginal, anal or oral sex.

• ALWAYS put the condom on BEFORE your erect penis touches your partner.

• USE water soluble lubricants, such as K-Y Jelly@, or spermicides to increase condom comfort and protection.

• NEVER use oil based lubricants such as Vaseline@, cold cream or lotion because they will damage condoms.

• DO not use a condom more than once.

• USE another condom, if the one you have:

- has torn or damaged packaging

- is past its expiration date or bears a manufacturing date of more than three years

- is uneven or changed in color

- feels brittle, dried out or very sticky.
