Most men say that when choosing condoms, they first look at their price or brand. Some men may choose based on their fragrance and thickness, but few people look at the condom number. In fact, when choosing condoms, on the premise of qualified quality, you should first consider the appropriate number for yourself. However, currently, most condom numbers on the market in China are medium, which also creates obstacles for many men to choose.
Don't fit the size of the "condom"
Several pharmacies and supermarkets have found that the condom models sold are unexpectedly "consistent": only 52mm condoms, also known as medium size condoms, are available. "Even salespeople don't understand the difference between models, and they just vaguely say, 'There's no difference in size.'" Or, 'This type of condom is an average size, and any size is fine.' "Even some international brand condoms are uniformly medium sized.".
After consulting several men, the reporter learned that many of them also have questions about the size of condoms, but most of them do not persist in finding the right size for themselves, so they use a medium size to make do. Some even believe that condoms only have one model. In addition, men usually pay attention to face and do not want others to know their privacy. If they feel uncomfortable, they must make do with it.
"In clinical practice, we often see that some men use too tight condoms, which impedes the blood circulation of the penis, leading to hypoxia in the tissues and nerves within the penis, partial injury to the cavernous body, and even the possibility of penis weakness and failure to lift. However, some people buy too large condoms, which can easily lead to the condom falling off, semen outflow, and reduced contraceptive effectiveness. Therefore, whether it is from safe contraception, preventing transmissible diseases, or improving the effectiveness of contraception From the perspective of quality of sexual life, you should choose the number that suits you. "Although it is rare, there are also a small number of large and small sized sets for sale on the market. You should be able to find suitable sets by visiting several stores." Andrologists suggest that men go to drug stores and other places where family planning stores are concentrated, and should be able to find suitable ones.
Tight condoms cause male sexual dysfunction
Why can condoms cause male sexual dysfunction? "Tightness can damage penis tissue. Whether the condom fits properly and its size is important. Even if the circumference is only one millimeter apart, the difference can be significant." The standard size of a condom for general use is 52 millimeters around the circumference.
Regarding the size of condoms, such as the use of improperly fitting condoms, it will not only affect the "identity symbol" determined by men, but also make users uncomfortable; Reducing contraceptive function may even lead to sexual impotence, with serious consequences that cannot be ignored. "From a medical point of view, using a condom that is too tight can cause damage to the penis tissue, leading to non lifting.".
Andrologist: Too narrow or too wide is bad for men
Linyi modern andrology experts have pointed out that if too tight and narrow condoms are often used, they can lead to ischemia in the penis, causing hypoxia in the tissues and nerves within the penis. If the affected part of the cavernous body is injured, it can lead to paralysis, and in severe cases, it can even lead to sexual impotence. Using overly lenient condoms can also be potentially dangerous. Some people buy oversized condoms and simply abandon them if they feel that they do not fit, or because the condom does not fit, it increases direct contact between the penis and the vagina, making semen easy to flow out, reducing contraceptive effectiveness, but increasing the likelihood of contracting sexually transmitted diseases (such as gonorrhea). Such condoms are difficult to provide safety protection.
