Published: May 14, 2012
Dear TeenHealthFX,
I wnat to start having sexual intercorse with my girlfriend. There is one question that i need an answer to and wondered if you can help? The one question that i want to know is. If you having sex with a condom and you ejaculate into the condom sperm is all over your penis. You then remove the condom and touch your penis. Is the sperm now on your hands and what will happen if you touch the outside off another condom and have sex with that same condom that you touched? Please help as i think sex is something special and should be looked at very carefully!! Thank You!!

Dear Sperm Transferring From The Condom To Your Hands,

 

TeenHealthFX is glad to see that you are putting the time and effort into educating yourself about practicing safer sex. Listed below is a step-by-step guide to properly taking off a condom following intercourse:

 

·          Once you have ejaculated, pull out before the penis softens.

·          Remember to hold the condom against the base of penis while pulling out so that the semen does not spill.

·          Throw the condom away.

·          Wash the penis (and any other part of your body that may have come into contact with sperm) with soap and water before any further contact with your partner.

·          Use a new condom for oral, anal or vaginal sex if you plan to resume sexual contact – never re-use a used condom.

 

To learn more about correct condom usage – including what kinds of lubrication you can use with condoms, how to put a condom on, what to do if a condom breaks – please read “Using Condoms Correctly” under the Birth Control Methods of the Sexuality and Sexual Health section of the website.

 

To learn more about generally practicing safer sex, please read “Updated Birth Control Information” under the Birth Control Methods of the Sexuality and Sexual Health section of the website.

 

There are a lot of issues to think about when considering when to start being sexually intimate with another person. There are safer sex considerations in terms of protecting yourself and your partner from unwanted pregnancies and the transmission of STDs, the emotional issues that can come up when it comes to having sex, and more. To determine whether you and your partner are truly ready to take this big step, look through the questions listed on the question and answer to “Want To Have Sex, But Not Sure If I’m Ready” under the Sexual Readiness? of the Sexuality and Sexual Health section of the website.

 

If you have further questions about safer sex methods or need to talk to a medical health professional about STD testing prior to, or following, becoming sexually active, please meet with your doctor or with an adolescent medicine specialist. If you don't have a doctor and live in northern New Jersey, you can call the Adolescent/Young Adult Center for Health at 973-971-6475 for an appointment or contact your local teen health center or Planned Parenthood.
