Dear Should We Change The Condom Between "Rounds" Of Sex?,

When my boyfriend and I have sex, we usually go 3 or 4 "rounds," as we say, in a row without changing the condom. Should we be changing the condom before we continue? We've been doing this for over a year and haven't broken a condom but the thought has crossed my mind to change it.

Condoms should never be reused. A new condom should be used for each act of intercourse, as well as if you are changing between oral, anal, and vaginal sex. This will help to better protect you against the transmission of STDs and unwanted pregnancies.
