Response from Ms. Southall
Hi There should be no reason for someone to reuse a condom. There are a lot of reasons why. Besides transmission of other sexually transmitted infections and bacteria but also putting on a condom unrolled used or not is difficult and could create tears.
HIV begins to die once it leaves the body. Yes being in an airtight container does prolong the death of the virus but it will still happen as it is no longer in the body.
Be responsible and ensure that you have extra condoms around and throw away those used ones!
Be well and stay safe, Shannon
