How To Put On A Condom
the condom on after the penis becomes erect. Optional: put
a few drops of water-based lubricant inside the tip of the
condom. Squeeze the tip of the condom to leave some extra
space and carefully unroll the rim of the condom along the
shaft of the penis. If the penis has a foreskin, put the condom
on with the foreskin pushed back. Once the shaft is covered,
push the foreskin forward (toward the tip). This lets the
foreskin move without breaking the condom. Optional: put more
water-based lubricant on the outside of the condom. After
ejaculation, hold the base of the condom, pull out, and pull
the condom off. Throw the condom away; don't reuse condoms.
Use a new condom every time you have sex.

the semen away with soap and water. If semen leaks into the
vagina during a woman’s fertile period, ask a reproductive
health clinician for information about emergency contraception.
