About this deal
If you think sperm has entered the vagina, you may need emergency contraception. You can use emergency contraception up to 5 days after unprotected sex (when sperm entered the vagina).
Kecia Gaither, MD, double board-certified in OB/GYN and Maternal Fetal Medicine, Director of Perinatal Services at NYC Health + Hospitals/Lincoln in the BronxExternal condoms come in a variety of materials for the user, but the most common one you’ll likely find on store shelves is made with latex. This material has proven to work well for external condoms because it is capable of stretching to fit around the penis, all while proving to be strong enough to not tear during intercourse. But not everyone is capable of using latex-based external condoms because they are allergic to the material. “They can also be made of other materials like polyurethane, polystyrene, and lambskin,” says Dr. Gaither.
Some people may be allergic to latex, plastic or spermicides, but you can get condoms that are less likely to cause an allergic reaction.External condoms come in many sizes, materials, and even flavors. There are regular latex external condoms, latex-free for those with allergies, ribbed condoms for extra pleasure, and extra-sensitive ones to make it feel like you're not wearing an external condom at all. Some condoms come pre-lubricated with a little bit of spermicide (a chemical that helps stop sperm from swimming to an egg). These are called spermicidal condoms. It seems like spermicidal condoms would be more effective than regular condoms, but that’s not true. Spermicidal condoms and regular condoms both work equally well to prevent pregnancy.
If the external condom is too tight or too loose, it is unable to serve its intended purpose as contraception. Experts recommend people with a penis try on external condoms when their penis is fully erect to best determine what size works well for them. “The average penis size is 5 to 7 inches long, with a girth of 3.5-6 inches in circumference,” Dr. Gaither says. “Most condoms are 7 inches long, and have a reservoir at the tip for semen collection.”There are several key signs to pay attention to that could indicate if the external condom is too small or too big on the penis.Condoms are a "barrier" method of contraception. They are made of very thin latex (rubber), polyurethane or polyisoprene and are designed to prevent pregnancy by stopping sperm from meeting an egg.
