There are two types of condoms: male condoms which are worn on the penis, and female condoms which are worn inside the vagina.
Male condoms are made from very thin latex (rubber), polyisoprene or polyurethane, and are designed to stop a man's semen from entering his partner's body.
When condoms are used correctly during vaginal sex, they help to protect against pregnancy and sexually transmitted infections (STIs). When used correctly during anal and oral sex, they help to protect against STIs. Condoms are the only contraception that protect against both pregnancy and STIs.

How to use a male condom
What to do if a condom breaks or slips off
If your condom breaks or slips off, you may need to use emergency contraception. Emergency contraception is only available for women or girls and comes in two forms, the intra-uterine device or IUD, or the ‘morning after pill'.
Please note that as well as pregnancy, unprotected sex can put you at risk of STIs such as chlamydia. You should visit Marie Stopes center clinic for testing.
Marie Stopes Nepal endorses its own brand of male condom. It is JODI CONDOM.
