A friend and I disagree, and Trojan does not have a contact number on their site.
Does anyone know FOR SURE (or know Trojans 800 number).
How long are Trojan condoms good for from the date of manufacture???

Weird question I know...but you all seem to know everything, and I can't find the info on line to save my life.
Found a bunch of stuff that states "generally condoms are good for....." but nothing difinitive.
Thanks much ladies


ETA:
I appreciate the laughs ladies, ya'll are killing me :rofl:
But...I know condoms have expiration dates, and I know not to use "questionable" condoms,and I know how to Google (I've tried, but no definitive answer there).

My question is specifically: How long are condoms good for after manufacture? When they make them, how far out are the expiration dates?
If I made a condom today, what expiration date would I put on it?

I remember reading that ALL condoms are typically only good for around 24 months.

:yeahthat: But they expire faster if kept in a warm place like a wallet. Then it's only a year I believe.

If youve got one sitting around for long enough to wonder. . . . .maybe you should be having more s*x...hehe

I don't use condoms, I hate them...and I am getting plenty of lovin' thank you:giggle2:
If I was out there, and dating, and not in a 14 yr relationship and whatnot I absolutely would use them...
That said...
I know they have an expiration date...our disagreement was about how long they are good from the time they are made until they expire.
Like bottled water says manufactured on xxxxxx, and then under that expires on xxxxxxx under that.

I think it's weird that Trojan does not have a customer service number:headscratch:

All the Trojan condoms I have ever owned have had exp dates stamped on the edge.

Your reliance on questionable condoms should be inversely proportionate to how devastated you'd be if it failed.







Just sayin'

dunno, don't use them:giggle:

the only plus to not ovulating on my own is we don't need them:giggle:

I would say 3 yrs from date of manufacture. I have some recently purchased condoms that expire in 2011. But all mine have dates on the package.

If you aren't sure, I say toss em... nobody wants to take a chance of a condom breaking.
