3 Side Effects Of Condoms You Never Knew

Condoms are one of the most commonly used methods of contraception today. Contraceptive methods help to prevent pregnancies.

Ideally, too much of a good thing is definitely bad for your health. While condoms are one of the greatest inventions known to mankind and help avoid the dangers of STDs and unwanted pregnancies, it does have some bad effects.

Here are few side effects of condom that you never knew:


Most condoms are made of latex, the fluid that is obtained from rubber trees. The symptoms of latex allergy can vary in ranging from sneezing, runny nose, itching and symptoms, such as swelling, dizziness, and light-headed.

Getting Other STDs:

Condoms are proven highly effective against HIV and reduce the risk of other diseases, such as syphilis, chlamydia, gonorrhoea and HPV. However, they do not afford protection against sexually transmitted diseases that can affect the outer layers of the skin, such as scabies infections and molluscum contagiosum.

Risk Of Pregnancy:

Condoms are mostly used to prevent an unwanted pregnancy. However, when used correctly condoms can only guarantee 98 percent protection and if used wrongly, 15 out of 100 women get pregnant.

Just go raw instead, save you and your partner these casualties and thank me later.
