Questions About Perforated Condom

Question

I just found your site as I was searching for a collection condom. I read the answer and question about perforating the condom with a sterile needle to get at least one drop of semen into the women. I have a few questions as I am in the same situation as the anonymous person who asked the question.
Does a tiny perforation in the tip of the condom allow sperm to get out into the woman? Also, are special sterile needles needed? Can they be bought somewhere? Also, are these male factor condoms thin? I used one, one time and not sure if it was this brand, but it was so thick it felt almost like a cleaning glove. I hope researches read our needs and make a more sensitive condom.

Thank you very much for a great site. I am excited to hear from you.

Dear Nazaria,

Because they can be hard to find, we offer medical condoms for sale, for $12 ($14 including tax and shipping). You can obtain one by e-mailing us at info@canfp.org or calling 831-443-3746 and ordering over the phone. They are not available through our online store. They may be available as well from your doctor’s office, but usually only if they regularly recommend obtaining the seminal fluid sample in this way. You might refer to the list of physicians on our site to find a doctor that would support this.

I do not know how their thickness compares to that of other condoms.

The purpose of piercing the condom with a needle is indeed to negate its contraceptive nature, and yes, this would make it possible for seminal fluid to escape. If you have access to a sterile needle, you can use that, and a tiny needle (such as 29 gauge) is adequate. If you do not have access to a sterile needle, you can simply sterilize your own needle, or pin, by passing it through a flame.
