‘We say it because people do it’

The Center for Disease Control (CDC) took the unprecedented step to warn about the dangers of reusing condoms claiming that’s because of they aware of cases when people actually did it.

“We say it because people do it: Don’t wash or reuse #condoms! Use a fresh one for each #sex act,” The CDC tweeted in July.

Condoms are designed to help protect you and your sexual partner from spreading sexually transmitted diseases, like syphilis or chlamydia, as well as unwanted pregnancy.

The effectiveness of condoms, however, is eliminated after the first use.

“Incorrect use, such as reusing a condom or using more than one at a time, diminishes the protective effect of condoms by leading to condom breakage, slippage, or leakage,” Dr. Elizabeth Torrone, an epidemiologist at the CDC’s Division of STD Prevention, told Buzzfeed.

Simply washing a condom with soap won’t kill any bacteria or virus lurking on the condom’s surface — meaning, it’s pretty much useless. Putting a wet, unrolled condom back on would also be a Herculean task.

If that’s not enough to encourage you to throw your old condoms in the trash and rely on fresh ones instead, then maybe the alarming rise in cases of super gonorrhea, an antibiotic-resistant strain of the bug, will.

People may reuse condoms for several reasons. For starters, they might run out of condoms and think that reusing one is the best option (it’s not). Some people may be misinformed or uneducated about how condoms work and why it’s important to use them correctly. People may also reuse condoms because they think it’s more cost-effective.

Whatever the reason, it really isn’t worth putting you and your partner at a greater risk for STIs and unintended pregnancy. If you’re going to wear a condom, you might as well make sure it works — right?

So, guys, please do not hesitate your health and do not use twice condoms as it may lead to serious troubles.
