Can one use a today sponge and a male condom together? I'm wondering if this is safe to do, would it make the condom break or tear?

If i take a contraceptive and he uses condoms laced with spermicide, can I have sex the day before ovulation and not get pregnant?
Double contraception: A qualified yes. The combination of two highly effective methods of contraception should reliably prevent pregnancy even at the time of peak fertility. The whole point of contraception is that you never know when peak fertility will occur in any month, so you want something that would be effective any time during the month. There is, however, a very small, about 1/500, in failure with any method. ...Read more

Is it okay to have sex with my girlfriend after i've had mono if we use a condom? I just got over mono, and we plan to use a condom.
Confusing question: You are likely to pass it in sexual fluids during the acute/ill phase, but when this has cleared from your blood, that would not be common. The primary method of exposure/transfer is in your saliva, which will contain active virus for weeks and months during the illness & after you feel better. The condom might be a good idea for many reasons but Has little to do with the mono issue. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Hi, I used a condom to have sex with a prostitute.the condom was brought from her.how can I assure if the condom is a fresh one and not a used one?
Oh dear...: I wish I could give you more assurance, but you probably can't know. If you saw her take it out of its package, and the condom was tightly rolled up, it was probably new. You might want to carry condoms with you so you know they are fresh, and of good quality. You may also want to check with your doctor about STD information and testing. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Yes, but not needed: Iud is high effective in reducing/preventing pregancy, and so spermicide is not typically needed. As you probably already know, using condom (which often contains spermicide) is advisable to reduce risks of std transmission and it is safe to use on women who have an iud in place. Iud only reduces/prevents pregnancy, not std...Thus adding a condom, with/out spermicide is advisable... ...Read more
IUD: Iuds, Mirena (levonorgestrel) and paragard are both safe methods of birth control and once inserted in terms of birth control, you don't have to use protection but they do not protect one against sexually transmitted infections (stds) and condoms should be worn if there's concern for std. ...Read more
