Can a Condom Wrapper Break While It's in Your Wallet?
Can a condom wrapper break while it's in your wallet? – Alisia*
Yes. Carrying a condom
in your wallet, where it may get folded or sat on, can break or tear the wrapper.
But even if the wrapper looks fine, the condom inside might not be. Condoms can get
pretty worn out if they're carried around in a wallet. That means they can break more
easily. Another problem with carrying condoms in a wallet is that it's easy to leave
them there for a long time. Older condoms are also more likely to break when used.
So what's the best way to carry condoms? Start by keeping a supply
at home in a bedside drawer or somewhere they won't be affected by temperature
changes and humidity. Then, before you go out, put a few in your purse or jacket pocket.
(You can put any unopened condoms back with your supply after you get home.)
Body heat is another thing that causes condom material to break down over time.
It's OK to carry condoms in a front pocket for a few hours, but try not to put condoms
in a back pocket where they'll get bent or sat on. And don't carry condoms in the
same pocket as keys or other things that could tear the wrapper.
To help you remember to take condoms with you, keep them in the same place
as your phone, wallet, or other items that you can't leave home without. You'll be
less likely to forget your condoms if you see them as you pick up something
you always carry with you!
