Preservative, male condom

Compatible

Safe substance and/or breastfeeding is the best option.

The male condom is a barrier method of contraception made of latex and polyurethane that is placed over the erect penis. If used properly, they are an effective barrier to prevent pregnancy and sexually transmitted diseases. (MedlinePlus 2023)

Barrier methods of contraception are effective and have no adverse effects on the mother, the baby or breastfeeding. Condoms are compatible with breastfeeding. (Berens 2015, CLM 2012, Amir 2011, FFPRHC 2004, WHO 2002)

Alternatives

We do not have alternatives for Preservative, male condom since it is relatively safe.

Suggestions made at e-lactancia are done by APILAM team of health professionals, and are based on updated scientific publications. It is not intended to replace the relationship you have with your doctor but to compound it. The pharmaceutical industry contraindicates breastfeeding, mistakenly and without scientific reasons, in most of the drug data sheets.

Jose Maria Paricio, Founder & President of APILAM/e-Lactancia

Your contribution is essential for this service to continue to exist. We need the generosity of people like you who believe in the benefits of breastfeeding.

Thank you for helping to protect and promote breastfeeding.
