It's not for pregnancy ....

but since celiacs are allergic to SO much, as i am, has anyone had any problems with condoms?

i dunno if thats to much of a risky question to ask and if it is, i'm sorry, but if someone could let me know, that would be good. thank you

some people do have a latex allergy, though I have never heard anything about there being a connection with celiac disease. if so, latex condoms wouldn't be a good choice, but they make polyurethane ones that are safe for those with latex allergies. do be aware, however, that most condoms are lubricated (you don't want them breaking!), and some lubricants irritate some people - again, nothing I've heard connected with celiac. and, finally, a handful of companies still make condoms with spermicidal lubricant, which is usually based on nonoxyl-9, which is known to be quite a strong irritant for some people (and why these types of condoms are slowing coming off the market).

so, while gluten isn't something to be concerned about (unless you're talking about flavored condoms for use in oral sex, in which case I would check the ingredients and call the manufacturer on the source of 'natural flavors' as applicable), there are plenty of other things to be aware of regarding reactions to condoms.

anyone think I've been down this long, drawn out road before? ;):D

Yeah, I am "allergic" to that stuff. I never had an allergy panel for it, but GOD do I *know* that I can't use it. Ok, any more would be WAY TOO MUCH INFO!!!!!!!!!!!!!
