Some men choose the wrong size when they buy condoms. If your condom is too small, it can break. If it is too large, it can fall off. Either of these outcomes can result in an STI or an unwanted pregnancy. There is plenty of “wiggle room,” but you should make sure that your condom fits you correctly.
Why People Choose the Wrong Sized Condom
The main reason many choose the wrong size is because they estimate their size when they are not erect. Penises usually fall into two categories: shower and grower. A “shower” is pretty much the same size whether or not you have an erection. In other words, you “show” your goods in the beginning. A “grower” can more than double in size when it becomes erect. Males who are “growers” often buy a condom that is too small, putting them at a higher risk of breaking it.
Luckily, there is an easy solution. Always size your condoms relative to the size of your erect penis. If you don’t feel like measuring, a standard condom is 52 mm in circumference. A lot of men will start with the standard and then move to a smaller or larger condom as necessary.
