male condom relatively easy to use.

Detailed Answer:
Hello
Welcome to HCM.

I can understand your concerns.

I appreciate your idea of using a condom.

First, they protect against STDs. They do not lead to HIV.

Both male and female condoms are easily available at any medical store. There is nothing to be ashamed of. You can just go and ask for a condom and they will easily give it to you.

In my opinion, your partner should wear a condom rather than you because its cheap, easy to use, disposable. Rather than you buying a condom for yourself, ask him to buy a condom for himself.

Female condoms are difficult to use for new users and slightly uncomfortable.

Condoms are very effective in preventing pregnancy.

Male condoms are available in standard size. He can just go and ask for a condom.

Female condoms are also available in standard sizes. A commonly used one is 17cm in length.

Condoms do not have spernicidals unless specifically asked for. The spermicidals are not needed rather if condom is used properly.

No one will think that you are cheap when you buy condoms.

Hope this answers your query satisfactorily.

Feel free to discuss further.

Take care.
Thanks.
