Condoms do expire

  DISCLOSURE: I am not an expert on sex; just a woman sharing bits & pieces of what she and some of her friends have learned in life. Feel free to email me if you have specific questions or want me to share your story on the blog. Don't be shy someone else might have gone through/is going through the same exact things you are going through. If you don't ask you will never know :)
      I learnt that condoms expire just a few years ago. It does have an actual expiration date, after that day you have a condom that is less likely to work effectively. It would slowly start to degenerate. When you wear it you might not feel the weakness of the latex (if you are allergic to latex then latex free). Condoms that you have had for a very long time are more prone to breakage because of this degeneration. Nobody wants to deal with the panic that comes after a broken condom. So do yourself a favor by not over stocking on your condoms, the store will not run out when you need them (well during a blizzard they might so maybe get there early enough lol).

       Another thing that can cause your condom to "expire" is leaving them in your wallet for too long. Please do not do this! Put them in your wallet the day you are going to use them if you end up not using it remember to take it out or toss it after a few days of it being in your wallet. When you leave condoms in your wallet for too long the wrapper might get poked and so might the condom. When you use this type of condom you think you have strapped up and protected yourself when all you have done is absolutely nothing. Be more vigilant and take care of your condoms appropriately.
