Doesn't matter, had sex.

Birth control it is


Is there an easy way?

The way I found out was pretty easy: We were balloon shopping for my fifth birthday party and I found that the closer I got to the balloons the harder it was to breathe. Next time I went to the dentist's, the closer HE got to me the harder it was to breathe. He figured it out and explained it to my mother. A blood test confirmed the allergy. It's when I come into CONTACT with latex that the sh!t hits the fan.

There is an easier way, you could get allergy testing.... I got mine done when i was like 8.

How bad did your asswhole swell up?

#27 Do your wear condoms on your asshole?

He's implying this guy had anal sex. Not a tasteful joke, but his comment isn't nonsensical.

OP found out the "hard" way...

Good thing abortions are still legal..

An allergy can develop at any point in time, 19.

113 - Yup. I had zero allergies as a child, but when I hit 17, suddenly I was horribly allergic to eggs, latex, most soaps/perfumes/shampoos, pretty much everything that's outside as long as there's no snow on the ground, and, my personal favourite, myself. (I'm not really allergic to myself, but I have Lupus, which means my immune system goes haywire and starts attacking healthy cells in my body.)

#131 - that's really sad and unfortunate :(

I hope the other partner wasn't too hard-on him

Birth control it is

...And keep the STDs comin'

A condom IS a form of birth control...

23 Condom is made of latex...

There are also rubber condoms, that's what people with latex allergy usually use.

There's non latex condoms for a reason. Also if you're ever near a doctor tell then you're allergic and they'll use the non latex gloves. I also found out I was allergic the hard way. Not fun at all :(

Isn't there a natural sheepskin condom or something? It has been a while since I used them, but they were available.

Yes, there are condoms made out of sheepskin, but I'm very skeptical about them due to the fact that I was born...

You can get non latex condoms but the latex ones are the only ones that protect against STI's. You and your partner should get tested since you will be using another form of birth control

70. All condoms have atleast a .01% chance of breaking..

polyurethane condems protect against STI's. Sheepskin don't. So if you are allergic to latex polyurethane is an alternative.

Latex gloves are rarely used in hospital settings @shan88

It must hurt with a swollen penis.

Faff, I thought that was the most clever thing ever.

You've got to be more specific. Latex condoms are a bitch. Time to switch back to sheep intestines.

Be sure to take 'em out of the sheep first.

Dirty sheep ******! Hahah

They make condoms now out of plastic.

Well, at least there are latex free condoms you can buy in the future ...

Doesn't matter had sex?

Too late #7 :(

At least you didn't find out while wearing a latex bodysuit

And for some reason I'm thinking of 1000 ways to die

I'm glad someone else saw that episode

I saw that episode too. The guy was in to S&M and dressed in a full body latex suit. He had a gag on so he couldn't tell her to let him out. The dominatrix beat him with a whip and had no idea his was dying from the allergic reaction. She just thought he was getting off on her spanks! :P

OP never said he wasn't wearing a latex bodysuit. and i think that would classify as 'finding out the hard way'

64 - OP's username is "swollenpenis"... That's as specific as it gets.

Me too!!! That must've been a terrible way to go!

Polyurethane? You can't put a price on your junk.

At least you didn't find out during your prostate exam, or while discovering that you do not, in fact, have a latex fetish.
