What To Do If You Get A Condom Stuck Inside You
So you had a nice sex sesh, finished up, and then realised that somehow the condom your partner used managed to slip off and get wedged inside.
Oh, it’s really in there.
Oh, you’re struggling to get it out.
What do you do now?
First off, remain calm. If you’ve found this article in a desperate Googling spree, breathe a sigh of relief. We’ve put together a proper guide on what to do if a condom gets stuck in your vagina or anus.
1. Remain calm
This is good advice in general, but it does actually serve a purpose beyond making you feel less frazzled.
If you’re tense, your vagina or your anal passage will contract, making removal of the condom even trickier.
If you find yourself in a mad rush of panic, take a break from thinking about the condom debacle entirely and come back to it in a bit. It’s not a great idea to keep a condom stuck inside you for a long time, but half an hour or so really won’t make a difference. Use that time to relax.
2. See if you can gently pull out the condom with your fingers
Try squatting or getting on all fours, then with clean fingers (with neat, trimmed fingernails to avoid any tearing. Ouch) see if you can feel the condom with your finger tips.
If you can, you should be able to gently hook the condom until it’s a little lower down. Once that’s done you can either continue to wriggle the condom out with one finger, or insert two fingers in a pinching motion to pull that sucker out.
Please, please, please, only use your fingers. Not tweezers, not scissors, not a chopstick, not anything else. Anything sharp and you’re risking seriously injuring your vagina, and anything not attached to your body could end up being taken in anally and get stuck, too. Then you’ll have two things stuck up your bum and you’ll feel a bit silly.
If you can’t feel the condom with your fingertips, it’s time to push it out.
If the condom is trapped in your anal passage, you can do this by trying to do a poo (sit on the toilet in case some faeces actually does come out).
If the condom is in your vagina, you’ll need to activate the muscles you’d use to birth a baby. It’s easier if you squat or stand with one leg resting on the toilet.
Do a few pushes and see if the condom is lower down or has come out. Don’t do this to the point that you’re frustrated and sobbing – you’ll tense up and only make things harder.
