- Latex Condoms
- Lambskin Condoms
- Polyurethane Condoms
- Polyisoprene Condoms
These are the most common type of Condoms which are available in the market and widely used by the people because it is cheap in cost. These Condoms are very much easy to manufacture and use. Because of that only it is famous among the people.
Latex is nothing but the natural rubber obtained from the rubber trees. Latex is the mixture of some of the organic components called as caticifers. These organic components are produced by plants and their special cells. But most of the organic rubber is obtained from the plant called Hevea Brasiliensis (Botanical name). Even though it is native to African areas, this plant is largely planted in Asian countries and India is one of the largest producers of it.
Advantages of Latex Condoms are

- Gives better protection against STDs and pregnancies
This is one of the oldest Condoms which are available in the market but the people nowadays do not use this and the companies stop the manufacturing of this type of Condoms. It is made from the most natural material called intestinal membrane of Lamb. This type of Condoms is widely used by the people before the introduction of other types of Condoms like latex and Polyurethane Condoms because it gives more natural feeling than the others. This type of Condoms is suitable for preventing the pregnancy but not viral STDs.
The intestinal membrane of lamb has numerous pores of small size through which the STDs may be transmitted. These pores are not enough in large size through which the sperms cannot pass through it but they are large enough for viral diseases causing cells. Nowadays the governments not encourage the manufactures this type of Condoms.
This type of Condoms is made from the plastic materials in order to give better protection against the viral STDs and pregnancies. Many people prefer to use these Polyurethane Condoms because they may find some allergic reactions to the latex Condoms. So this Polyurethane Condoms act as a better alternative to the latex Condoms for the people who have an allergic reaction to the latex.
But this type of Condoms has one of the most important disadvantages and that is this Condom does not have that much elasticity as like that of Latex Condoms. This stiffness may be liked by many people but its movement in the market is not that much high as like that of the others. This stiffness characteristic of Polyurethane Condoms is because of plastic. We all know that plastic is a material known for its stiffness. So the Condoms which are made from plastic also have the same characteristics.

Polyisoprene is the synthetic version of the natural latex. This synthetic latex is prepared artificially in the laboratories by the combination of various inorganic materials. So this Condom exhibits most of the characteristics similar to that of the natural latex.
The advantages of this Polyisoprene Condoms are
- Excellent alternative to Latex Condoms
