I referred to non-latex condoms in general. I am still searching for one that suits as most don’t fit my partner.
The Trojan Supras ordered from LoveHoney arrived by the very next post but my husband said road testing condoms was cramping our style and we needed to give it a break.
I am fascinated by the concept latex sensitivity may be age related – I reacted badly to latex from as young as 20 (but it was misdiagnosed as thrush until I had children at 30).
The British Association of Dermatologists states on their website:
How common is latex allergy?
Nobody knows exactly. This is because there have not been any really good studies to accurately measure the number of people affected by latex allergy.
The best estimate at the moment is that it probably affects less than 1% of the general population (1).
It also seems to be rare in children (2).
There is a theory the increase in peanut allergies can be related to overuse of a peanut oil based breast cream when babies were breast feeding. Maybe overuse/overexposure to latex based products could contribute to latex sensitivity. So trying out a variety of different of condoms before you show any signs of sensitivity may be a good idea.
