How effective are Trojan condoms?
According to Planned Parenthood, Trojan condoms (and other condom brands) should be approximately 98% effective at preventing pregnancy when used correctly. Always make sure to use condoms the right way to protect yourself against unplanned pregnancy and sexually transmitted diseases.
Do Trojan condoms have spermicide?
Some Trojan condoms do have spermicide. For those that do, Nonoxynol-9 spermicide is used to provide you and your partner with extra protection from pregnancy. Always read the product packaging carefully to confirm whether or not your Trojan condoms have spermicide, since not all of them do.
How long do Trojan condoms last?
Trojan condoms do have a shelf life, and most are good for anywhere from one to three years from the date of manufacture, which you can find printed on the wrapper. Most Trojan condoms should last for about five years, but make sure you store them in a cool, dry place to ensure that they are in good condition when you're ready to use them. If the condom is older than three years based on the printed manufacture date, it's best to use a new one to be safe.
Are all Trojan condoms latex?
No, not all Trojan condoms are made of latex. For example, the Trojan BARESKIN condoms are non-latex and made for latex sensitive people. If you have a sensitivity to latex, make sure you check what the Trojan condom is made of before using it.
