How Old Do You Have To Be To Buy Condoms

By on November 6, 2017

The chances are if you’re searching this, you are most likely young and so I am here to deliver the good news that there is absolutely no age limit on condoms.

Nobody should make you feel bad in stores for buying condoms because you are legally allowed to purchase them at any age.

One of my biggest pet peeves is shop assistants that scowl and make you feel dirty for buying something so essential. When going to buy your condoms, never let anyone make you feel embarrassed or wrong for buying condoms, would they rather you had a baby? or were getting treated for a malicious STD?

where to get condoms

There are so many places you can get ahold of condoms and I wanted to point you in the right direction:

  • You can buy condoms online, in bulk for a great price. Places like Amazon sell CE (very important) certified condoms for a cheaper price than you would find in a store, however, there is a downside to this if you live with nosey parents or don’t have access to your own credit card.
  • Any drugstore or grocery store has condoms for sale. You will find them in the medical/pharmaceutical/bath & body section. You can pick a pack up along with your shopping in these kinds of stores.

tips for buying condoms

*TOP TIP * If you’re buying your condoms in a store and you are a little shy, buy a birthday card and a balloon to go with it so it looks like you are buying them for a friend.

  • Free condoms are available in most clinics and hospitals, just make sure you’re in the right department and don’t be shy about it.
  • Read up on guides, watch YouTube videos, take advice and learn how to use a condom properly so that you don’t waste any. Remember to never re-use a condom.

making condoms safer

As you can see there are so many places that you can buy condoms, you can even get them for free if you go searching in the right places. There’s never an excuse not to wear one and here are some tips on how to prolong the life of your condoms and look after them properly –

  • Store them in a cool and dry place.
  • Never re-use a condom, ever.
  • If you have one stored in your wallet make sure it’s still in date and has no wear and tear when you use it.
  • Use condoms with a second form of protection, if you’re having sex with a woman ensure she’s on the pill or another method of birth control to ensure you really are safe from unwanted pregnancies.
