I think I’m allergic to condoms, what should I do ?

What can I do if I’m allergic to condoms?

Hypo-allergenic (low allergy) ones are available. However, it may not be the condom but the lubricant on it that’s causing your discomfort.

· Try changing from condoms with spermicide on them – ie. nonoxynol 9 or 11 – to condoms which are lubricated only.

Dryness can make sex very uncomfortable for both partners with or without condoms.

To reduce discomfort:

· Use a lot of extra water-based lubricant in case the allergy is friction based – ie. from being too dry.
