Adequate lubrication is important to prevent condom breakage, but use only water-based lubricants, such as glycerin or lubricating jellies. Examples of water-based lubricants are K-Y Jelly, Wet, AquaLube, I-D, and AstroGlide. (which can be purchased at any pharmacy). Oil-based lubricants, (such as Vaseline, Crisco, baby oil, massage oils, cold cream, or hand lotion can weaken the condom and break down the latex structure very quickly causing the condom to break within a matter of seconds.
