In this article we are going to talk about a certain area of the condom market which a lot of people actually will never dive into; the Polyurethane Condoms market. Generally the average male can go into a superstore, pick up any pack of condoms and take them home to use them. However unfortunately for some this is not the case.
As you may already know a lot of the mainstream condoms were originally developed using latex as a key ingredient. Whilst this has at some point caused a problem with the Vegan community due to latex being processing with casein a type of milk protein, it also meant there was once no condoms available for those who suffer from a latex allergy; this is where Polyurethane Condoms come into play.
A latex allergy is the term used in medicine where by a patient has frequent allergic reactions caused by natural rubber latex. Of course those with these allergies cannot simply just go without sexual protection, so Polyurethane Condoms may be their main hope.
These condoms are found to have the same width and thickness as a regular condom making them feel and appear practically the same. On top of this various studies conducted all over the world have returned the results that Polyurethane Condoms are able to offer the exact same amount of protection against pregnancy and sexually transmitted diseases and infections.
Whilst the Polyurethane Condoms are great for those who are allergic to latex, you should know that they still have the same risks as a regular condom. Condoms can split if they are put on wrong or you have purchased the wrong size so take this into account when practicing safe sex.
Where can you buy Polyurethane Condoms?
These condoms are now available in almost every supermarket or pharmacy that sells sex based products. Sexual health clinics are even now offering out Polyurethane Condoms if requested after confidential talks or discussions with a patient or client who would need such product. The products come in all of the sizes and varieties (almost as regular latex condom) but they are usually a little bit pricier.
Here are two popular polyurethane condoms which can easily be purchased online:
