Study group discussion: Non contraceptive uses of condom

Non contraceptive uses of condom? I was asked this question in today's viva!

To prevent STIs. Reduces incidence of HPV infection. Reduces chances of cervical cancer.

Condom pack to stop bleeding. Condom to stop PPH.

Condoms can also be used as gloves for per vaginal examination where there is unavailability of gloves mostly in rural
areas. Strange but interesting fact!

Condoms are also used to cover the USG probe in transvaginal scan.

And there exists a thing called condom catheter.. Used for weaning people off from a regular foleys! Due to prolong use of foleys patient loses urge to micturate. Sometimes.. So we use condom catheter. Which is basically a condom plus a urinary catheter attatched to it.

For vaginoplasty used to make moulds.

In treatment of infertility, used for 2-3 months.

Intra arterial administration.

Wow so many uses of condom!
