Condoms can help protect you from most STDs, but they're not perfect. Sometimes they break. A condom can break if it's put on the wrong way. Here's the right way to put on a condom.
Squeeze the air from the tip of the condom as you put it on the head of the hard penis.
Leave some room in the tip of the condom to catch semen. Unroll the condom all the way down over the penis.
Use only water-based lubricants with latex condoms. Using oils or hand creams can cause latex condoms to break.
After sex, hold the condom at the base of the penis and pull out of your partner carefully. Then throw the condom away.

Dr. Marsha Bornt started seeing me when I was in my early twenties (20 years ago). After seeing many doctors, she was the 1st doctor to diagnose me with endometriosis. I went on to have many laparoscopies with her over the years. In my thirties I moved about 45-50 min away from Apple Hill, so I ended up seeing another doctor who performed another laparoscopy...
Staff was very friendly and professional. I had a few questions that the doctor was more than happy to answer for me. I got all that needed to be done in a very timely manner. I was very pleased with my visit. Trying to find a parking spot was very frustrating though. Arrive at least 15 minutes prior to your appointment.
I am always glad to meet with Dr. Bornt. She is very pleasant and makes sure she has answered all your questions or concerns. She is very thorough in her approach about your medical history . . .wants only the best for you as her patient.
