10 benefits of condom to male and female

Male and female condoms are forms of barrier contraception so they avoid pregnancy by stopping sperm from meeting an egg. The condom is the only method which also prevents sexually transmissible infections .

What is Condom?

Condoms are made of rubber or a special type of thin plastic. Anyone can use them but if you or your partner is allergic to latex or rubber, you must use latex-free condoms. The male condom fits over the erect penis and the female condom is inserted into the vagina.

Hello guest, my name is Adigun Abiola. I have compiled some benefits of condom to male and female through an online research.

The following are the benefits of condom:

1. Effective against sexually transmitted diseases

Sexually transmitted infections belong to the top diseases that both male and women get. And these are usually passed on during unprotected sexual intercourse. And if you are still not convinced, HIV- the virus that causes AIDS is also transferred most commonly through sex. Now, wearing a condom would keep you protected from all these. By the way, it would be best to stay away from lambskin condoms since they contain microscopic holes, which may cause fluids to leak and for certain viruses to pass through.

2. Protection from Unexpected Pregnancy

So you and your partner are not ready to be instant parents just yet. Using a condom would help you from getting your girlfriend pregnant. Did you know that condoms have a 98% success rate when it comes from preventing unwanted or unexpected pregnancies?
Adding condoms to your birth control lineup can give you extra pregnancy protection. No method is 100% effective, so adding condoms as a backup helps you prevent pregnancy if you make a mistake with your other method or it fails. And it's a good idea to use condoms to help protect yourself against STDs as well.
Condoms can add extra protection to almost all other birth control methods, like the pill, shot, ring, IUD, and implant. However, don't use the female condom and male condom together, and there's no need to wear more than one condom at a time. One should do the trick.

3. Easy to purchase at convenience stores, pharmacies and even groceries.

Since condoms are being promoted to encourage couples to exercise safe sex, you can easily find condoms of different kinds and makes which you can use. They are also affordable. One tip though: you have to use a brand that’s trusted, and not just those over the counter types that you have not actually heard of. Check online for the best brands that you can purchase.

4. Condoms have less or technically no side effects

Compared to birth control pills or spermicidal solutions or sprays, condoms have lesser side effects. And if there are any, these are mostly concentrated on the skin. But if you know how to put on and use a condom, the chances of having side effects would be slim to none! Use a polyurethane (plastic) condom since it’s hypoallergenic and will protect your skin and that of your partner’s, especially if you are allergic to latex.

5. No medications or prescriptions required

If you are going to use condoms, you don’t need any type of medication just to keep your partner from getting pregnant. Whereas if your partner will be using pills, she has to take them on a regular basis, for a specific period of time. Condoms, on the other hand, can only be used during sexual intercourse and you certainly would not need any prescription from your doctor to use one.

6. Increases your sense of responsibility

Condoms are not about promoting promiscuousness among teens or new couples. As a matter of fact, it has been proven that the increase in the knowledge about condoms did not increase the rate of sexual activity among teenagers. This only increased awareness and made couples more prepared and responsible.

7. Condoms are known to boost sexual pleasure

With its different types and makes, condoms can make your experience pleasurable. Polyurethane condoms are thin and transparent enough to make you think that you do not have one on. There are also those with more texture to really keep you stimulated!
Condoms come in lots of different styles, shapes, and textures that increase sensation for both partners. And having your partner put the condom on your penis can be a sexy part of foreplay, especially if you add lube. Condoms can even delay ejaculation (cumming), so sex lasts longer.
You can use condoms for oral, anal, and vaginal sex, so they protect you from STDs no matter how you get down. And that's really the sexiest part of all: condoms let you focus on pleasure and your partner without worrying about pregnancy or STDs. Safer sex is better sex because it stops stress from killing the mood.

8. Practice is not required

The use of condoms does not require you to practice on different partners just to get it right. Just follow the instructions and you are good to go. One example of a good rule that you should keep in mind is to not unroll the condom prior to wearing it, as it will increase the amount of air inside the “tube.”
9. Doesn’t affect a woman’s menstrual schedule or cycle
Yes! Unlike pills and injections, the use of condoms will never ever affect a woman’s menstrual cycle. Condoms do not have any effects on your partner’s system and physical health, the way some contraceptive pills can.

10. Condoms can prevent Cervical Cancer in Women

Although some people doubt that there is any truth in this claim, studies show that women who ask their partners to wear condoms during intercourse can definitely lessen the risks of HPV - the virus that causes Cervical Cancer, entering their bodies.
