Use a spermicide with condom for maximumeffectiveness and protection.
Do not use teeth, knife, scissors or other sharputensils to open package.
 The condom should be unrolled onto erect penisbefore penis enters vagina, because pre-ejaculatorysemen contains active sperm.
If the condom does not have an enlarged end(reservoir tip), about 1-2 cm should be left at the tip forthe ejaculate.
While holding on to the base (ring) of the condom,withdraw penis before losing erection. This preventscondom from slipping off and spilling semen.
Each condom should only be used once.
Dispose of used condoms by placing in a wastecontainer, in latrine or burying.
