Pregnancy Myth:

You can reuse a condom if you rinse it out.


Condoms are designed for one-time use only. In fact, if a condom breaks during sex, it should be immediately removed and thrown away. In order to most effectively use condoms as a primary source of birth control, couples should inspect the condom for damage, apply the condom immediately before sex, use lubrication if necessary (to ensure that it does not rip), and immediately remove the condom after ejaculation.
