I have a new partner now. I wanted everyones opinon what is the best type of condoms to use. I know I like astroglide, but I don't know what type of condoms to use.

I can tell you to avoid the ultra sensitive variety, that's the kind I used with the partner I got H from.

I've read that you're safer using one that already has spermicide.

spermicide

Can you use spermicide and astroglide at the same time?

I have heard NOT to use spermicide as it inflames/irritates genital tissue making one more susceptible to STIs.

spermicide

To use or to use spermicide. That is the questions. Is regular condoms enough protections? Some condoms make me itch. Astroglide does just fine for me, although I know it doesn't not offer any protection. It make everything feel better.

Condoms do not necessarily provide protection against herpes because it is a skin to skin disease. Someone can have a bump, lesion, etc on their pubic area so you know a condom will not help there. I have always used a condom and still contracted hsv.
