    Are durex condoms any safer than the free ones, such as those given out in clinics? For example, the condoms i get with my C card (i registered at school after a chlamydia talk) are free, much more convenient, and far less embarrassing to get . Neither i nor my partner have any STIs, but we both fear pregnancy. Are you any more likely to become pregnant using a free condom compared to a durex condom is my question.

    No, they're not. Pasante - the usual choice for such schemes because of their pricing for clinics etc - are as reliable as any other.

    Because it's the most famous brand (in the UK), Durex is also the most faked brand, so if you've buying some, you may not be getting what you expect.

    Just a cheaper alternative. Make sure any condoms you use have the heart/kite symbol and are still "squishy" with air.

    Can't image if the state gives them away that they are not ok. Is there a kite mark? Save you a lot of money if you bonk frequently.
