CDC warns people not to wash, reuse condoms


NEW YORK – Apparently, it needs to be said: Don’t rinse or reuse condoms.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention released a warning and reminded intimately active people to use a new condom for any sex act.

“We contend it since people do it,” a CDC tweeted.

The recommendation was released as a series of sexually transmitted diseases is on a rise, according to a CDC.  Cases of chlamydia, gonorrhea and syphilis – a 3 many ordinarily reported conditions in a republic – all recently reached record highs.

There were some-more than 1.5 million chlamydia cases reported, scarcely 400,000 cases of gonorrhea and scarcely 24,000 cases of primary and delegate syphilis in 2015.

The scold use of masculine condoms and other barriers like womanlike condoms and dental dams can revoke a risk of STDs, though usually about a third of Americans indeed use them, CDC data shows.

The CDC also released some some-more condom-related recommendation in a second tweet.

“Condoms don’t final forever,” a classification tweeted. “Be certain and check a death date before regulating them!”
