Even though it looks simple and trivial, not all men and women can always use a condom correctly when having sex. In fact, if used correctly, condoms can prevent pregnancy up to 98 percent and prevent sexually transmitted diseases.
Researchers from Indiana University in the United States has recently undertaken a review of 50 studies on condom use within the last 16 years. Research results found a list of common mistakes made when couples use condoms. The following is a list of 15 errors using condom as reported by MensHealth:
1. Late to use a condom

2. Take off the condom while still having sex
The findings show, between 13.6 to 44.7 percent of volunteers are involved in other research claimed to remove the condom before intercourse completion.
3. Open completely roll the condom before use

4. Not leave room at the end of the condom
The report shows, there are approximately 24.3 to 45.7 percent of men forget to leave room at the end of the condom as a place for semen.
5. Not remove the air from the condom
The survey also found that as many as 48.1 percent of women and 41.6 percent of men did not suppress or remove the air that is in the tip of the condom before use.
6. Condom upside down
Between 4 and 30.4 percent of study participants reported wrong in wearing a condom, but then they turned it over again and continue the use of condoms.
7. Failed to completely unroll the condom

8. Exposed to sharp objects
Note there are approximately 2.1 to 11.2 percent of men have been unwrapped condom use sharp objects. The problem is if the object you use is sharp enough to tear the condom wrapper, then there is the possibility of tearing the condom will come.
9. Not keen to see the damage the condom
When opening the condom from its package, 82.7 percent female and 74.5 percent of men reported that they failed to inspect the damage prior to use condoms. What to do? Make sure the condom wrapper is torn and see the condition of the expiration date.
10 No use of lubricants
Between 16 percent and 25.8 percent of people reported having used a condom without a lubricant. Why this could be the problem? Because, if you have sex for a long time, condoms are more likely to tear if not using lubricant.

15. Do not use condoms at all
This last error is not actually part of the study. But, it never hurts to be added in the list. According to a recent survey from the National Survey of Sexual Health and Behavior in the United States, only 45 percent of men aged 18-24 years who used a condom during sex with a partner. In fact, the survey also found that only 29.3 percent of men aged 25-34 years use condoms and only 21.3 percent of men aged 35-44 years who used a condom.
