Using condoms appropriately is not only good for birth control but also prevents sexually-transmitted disease(STD). It is hard to believe that people are re-using it. I think it’s common sense that condoms are for one-time use only.
Another benefit of condoms is it reduces penis sensitivity. This is especially useful for men with premature ejaculation problem. In fact, using a condom along with penis desensitizer can help men with premature ejaculation last longer in bed.
The CDC Has Spoken, People Are Re-Using Condoms
This is bad news. Condoms are not designed to be re-usable. But the CDC has spoken that there are people who re-use condoms and put themselves at risk of getting STD.

If you are among these people who are re-using condoms, you might regret it someday.
Always Use Fresh and Appropriate Size Condoms
To be an effective condom user always pick the right size and only use sealed fresh condoms. In fact, before opening and putting it on, check the expiry date.
Yes, condoms have expiry date indicated in the package. Of course, after using it, dispose of it properly and never wash, or thinking of using it again.
CDC epidemiologist Elizabeth Torrone told CNN;
Condoms prevent the spread of most STDs and likely reduce the risk of all STDs, but a condom is only effective when used correctly.
Moreover, she adds;
Incorrect use, such as reusing a condom or using more than one at a time, diminishes the protective effect of condoms by leading to condom breakage, slippage, or leakage.
If you care about your health and your partner, as well, use condoms once and dispose of it properly. It is clear, condoms are not reusable.
