Yes, Condoms do expire. Once Condoms have passed their use-by date, they would have deteriorated somewhat since their day of manufacture.
Most Condoms are made from polyurethane and latex. Both are biodegradable materials that will break down over time which is excellent for the environment.
Out of date condoms are weaker and more prone to splitting than in-date condoms. So expired condoms should never be used. It’s not worth risking an STD or unwanted pregnancy by using an expired condom. New condoms are cheap and easily obtainable.
Each condom wrapper will have a use-by date printed on it and only takes a second to read. So always make sure your Condom is in date. Condoms usually have a use by window of 3-5 years, so there’s plenty of time to use the condoms you buy.
You may want to take the 3-5 year rule if you’re considering buying condoms in bulk.
