Obviously you want condoms and birth control to be effective and work properly. Well, where you store them plays a huge part in that! So where should you store your condoms and BC?
Your wallet is not a good idea. Keeping them in a wallet in your
purse might seem useful, but it’s not: the friction of opening and
closing your wallet, and of other things rubbing against it, might rip the condom.
At home, condoms shouldn’t be exposed to sun or kept in hot weather.
Keep them somewhere cool, dry, and dark.
Do not keep the Pill in your bathroom – It has
to be kept away from moisture and heat. Keep it tightly sealed, don’t take the pills out of the packaging until you take them, and try to keep it at room temp.
The NuvaRing should be kept under 85 degrees fahrenheit at all times,
and for the first four months of their life span they need to be stored at under 77 degrees.
It needs to be kept at 77 degrees fahrenheit. Although you can get away with hotter or colder temperatures very
briefly, and it needs to be kept in a dark, dry place. So no bathroom.
Don’t store it with oil-based lubricants. Make sure it’s washed with soap and warm water before you put it away
It needs to be kept somewhere cool and dark. And don’t get it wet: that activates the spermicide and it needs to be used immediately or thrown out.
