Here Are Some Side-Effects Of Condoms You Never Thought Of

Contraceptive methods help to prevent pregnancies. This means using condoms is essentially a means of birth control. However, while birth control may be the primary purpose, a condom is also able to provide other benefits to the user.

One such advantage is protection from sexually transmitted infections or STIs.

However, too much of a good thing is definitely bad for you, not to mention detrimental for your health. While condoms are one of the greatest inventions known to mankind and help avoid the perils of STDs and unwanted pregnancies, it does have some ill-effects. Here are few side effects of condom that you never knew:

  • Allergy

Most condoms are made of latex, the fluid that is obtained from rubber trees. The American Academy of Allergy, Asthma & Immunology research noted that some people experience an allergic response to the protein in the rubber. This is very rare. The symptoms of latex allergy can vary in presentation and severity, ranging from sneezing, runny nose, hives, itching or flushing to more severe signs and symptoms, such as wheezing, swelling, dizziness, and light-headedness.

In certain instances, latex allergies can invoke anaphylaxis, a life-threatening condition. It is best advised for people who have latex allergy to switch to synthetic condoms. However, the chances of condom tear during the act are high with these condoms and they aren’t compatible with most vaginal lubricants too.

  • Acquiring other STDs

Condoms are proven highly effective against HIV and reduce the risk of other diseases, such as syphilis, chlamydia, gonorrhoea and HPV. However, they do not afford protection against sexually transmitted diseases that can affect the outer layers of the skin, such as scabies infections and molluscum contagiosum. Studies have found out that although condoms can reduce the risk of genital herpes, they don’t protect every part of the skin in which the herpes virus can asymptomatically shed and be transmitted to an infected sexual partner.

  • Risk of pregnancy

Condoms are mostly used to prevent an unwanted pregnancy. However, when used correctly condoms can only guarantee 98 percent protection and if used in an improper manner 15 out of 100 women get pregnant. So if you are using a condom to prevent an unwanted pregnancy be sure that you use a fresh piece and know how to use it right. Condoms that have crossed their expiry date becomes brittle and could break during intercourse.

If the man is to give money regularly to his partner when dating, she argued that the relationship can collapse.

“People might think that giving their partner money guarantees loyalty, guarantees love, guarantees a happy relationship but I am here to tell you that it is actually not the case. If you are someone who has based your whole relationship on money as the solution to everything…there’s an argument and the next thing you do is give her money to go and buy her favourite thing, go shopping, what you are doing is actually damaging your relationship because money cannot be the solution to everything. There is more to life than money.

‘I Dated My Wife For 9 Years And She Never Asked Me For Money’ – Nigerian Man Shares ‘Grass To Grace’ Story

Published

on

A Nigerian man has revealed how his girlfriend who is now his wife never stressed him with financial responsibilities during the period he dated her.

He said that they dated for almost 9 years, and during that moment he cannot recall a single moment that she placed a financial burden on his weak shoulders.

He shared his story on Twitter while ultimately reminding couples never to make the fulcrum of their relationship.

In his words;

”All through the almost 9 years I dated my wife, I cannot recall her asking me for money for anything for one day.

It was basically us just doing stuff together with our money. Right from university days until we graduated.

She didn’t call me one day to ask for money for phone Recharge card or hair or dress. We had occasional exchange of gifts and that’s that. Do not see me as tweeting from a privilege position. Our parents weren’t wealthy but they took care of our needs. All these were mostly seen as normal to us because it was common amongst my peers.

So it’s what I know I’ll tweet about. It remained that way until we got married before we individually took up our roles. To the younger ones, you can do it. Poverty is not an excuse as long as you have parents or siblings that are sponsoring you, live within your means and enjoy your relationship and grow together.

Involving money in relationships breed entitlement mentality between people dating.

I take care of you and you give me sex. That’s entitlement. You miss all the opportunities to truly know who you’re dating & it reduces trust & This was what we did. It doesn’t have to work for you if you try. But I’ll not come here to deceive you/tweet for the optics just because it’s “popular” opinion.I’m more into building, bonding & deliberately committing when it involves issues of the heart.”
