Condoms are thin pouches that keep sperm from getting into the vagina. There are male condoms and female condoms:.

It is unrolled all the way to the base of the penis while holding the tip of the condom to leave some extra room at the end. This creates a space for semen after ejaculation and makes it less likely that the condom will break. After the male ejaculates, he should hold the condom at the base of the penis as he pulls out of the vagina. He must do this while the penis is still erect. This prevents the condom from slipping off when he gets soft, which could let sperm enter the vagina. The female condom is inserted into the vagina using the closed-end ring.
