When opening a condom, make sure you push it to the side before opening the packaging. This is to prevent damaging the condom before use. Also be aware that long finger nails can damage the condom…..so be careful.
7. Is it the right way? Make sure you put it on the right way round
If you put a condom on the wrong way round, make sure you take it off and bin it. Never turn the condom the other way round as it may contain pre-ejaculation, which may contain sperm. Always start again and use a new condom.
