1 or 2 condoms?

1 or 2 condoms?

No added protection: New, undamaged, good quality condom when used properly can be quite effective against unwanted pregnancy and the spread of sexually transmitted diseases.

But 18% of women get pregnant in general with condoms since condoms are often used carelessly. Use spermicide with condoms. For latex condoms, water-based lubricants, such as k-y jelly or astroglide are safe but oil based lubricants like petroleum jelly, damage the condom and make it leak.
