  1. The effectiveness of a condom is directly related to its proper use, which includes how you handle it before and after it’s used. Store condoms in a cool, dark place, as light and heat can degrade latex. Condoms come with an expiration date, so check the package before using one. Once you’ve used a condom, you need to remove it - before the erection is lost - by holding the rim and withdrawing the penis. Done any other way, sperm can leak out. Then throw the condom out in the garbage. Don’t flush it, and don’t use it again.
