Condoms come in a variety of different materials. They all feel a little different but, when used correctly, are equally effective at preventing pregnancy.
Latex rubber is the most common condom material. These contraceptives are cheap and effective, but you'll need to use another type if you or your partner is allergic to latex. Lambskin is a natural latex alternative that is incredibly effective at preventing unwanted pregnancy. However, lambskin condoms do not prevent the spread of sexually transmitted diseases. Polyurethane condoms are stronger and thicker than latex condoms, meaning they’re more expensive. During use, the material heats up to your body temperature, making it feel like you’re not wearing anything. Tactylon condoms are stretchier than other varieties, helping them better conform to the shape of the penis.
