    Read the exp date on the box or condom wrapper. Dont store them in your wallet. That will quicken its expiration .

    They last for years if stored properly, but all condoms have the date on the packet, so check that.
    Next time you go to the supermarket, fill your trolley with booze - vodka, whisky, gin, whatever you want, fill it, and just before you get to the till put in a pack of nappies. Once they've tilled it through and tell you the price, pretend like you don't have quite enough money and put the nappies back. They'll look at you like you're scum, it's brilliant.

    for several years after they are produced. each condom has an expiration date printed on wrapper, refer to that in the future, if it is a novetly condom and for some godforsaken reason it does not have a date, do not use it. in condoms are exposed to heat, cold, friction, puncture or other environmental factors (like the dreaded wallet condom) it is not safe to use, so the expiration date is not a fool proof way to tell if a condom is still good. better safe than sorry, just buy a new pack at the drug store, don't risk it.
    right now.

    i had someone come and talk about this subject at school.

    she said not to use one if it is 6 months away to the exp. date. that way it takes into acount for the "wallet" or the "car glove box on a 102* day" problems.

    so i always give my self 6 months.

    If stored correctly they can last a long time. They always have a date on the packet; refer to that.

    if it is a novetly condom and for some godforsaken reason it does not have a date, do not use it.
    If it's a novelty condom, don't use it anyway if you're relying on condoms for protection, because they're not reliable - they're not meant for use as a contraceptive. They are what they say they are - a novelty.
    Next time you go to the supermarket, fill your trolley with booze - vodka, whisky, gin, whatever you want, fill it, and just before you get to the till put in a pack of nappies. Once they've tilled it through and tell you the price, pretend like you don't have quite enough money and put the nappies back. They'll look at you like you're scum, it's brilliant.

    First of all, your wallet's likely to be kept in your pocket, where it's warm - which makes them wear away, and might be sat on. Also, it might be more at risk of wearing in there.

    yeap heat can degrade the latex which isnt good when the lates barrier is what keeps you safe from the std's and getting ur girl pregnant. There is already a chance that condoms will break, tear, etc so why increase those chances by damaging them ?

    My golden rule is if in doubt throw them out. Condoms are cheap and well buying another condom for a dollar lets say is cheap in comparison to what u would be paying with child support
