Is this condom safe to use?

Okay I did laundry and didn't realize I had a condom in one of my jeans pocket. It went through the washing machine but it was still wrapped. It was unused. Can I still use it? Or...?

Re: Condom Accident! Help!

It may be fine but I would suggest not using it. The heat from the washing machine (and possibly the dryer) may partially melt the condom which could weaken it. Even though it looks solid, it may break easier than normal.

Re: Condom Problem! HELP NEEDED!

No, the condom is definitely not safe to use. Please use a new one that is fresh and new. If you read the instructions that came with the package, it will tell you a lot.
