    The Effectiveness of Condoms in Preventing Pregnancy and STIs
    img

    When it comes to sexual health, prioritizing protection is important to keep you healthy and safe! One of the most commonly used methods of protection against sexually transmitted infections (STIs) is the condom. But how effective are condoms really? Let's talk about it!

    The Effectiveness of Condoms

    Condoms have long been hailed as a reliable method of contraception and protection against STIs. When used correctly and consistently, condoms have a high success rate in preventing pregnancy. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), condoms are 98% effective in preventing pregnancy when used correctly. However, it's important to note that this effectiveness rate drops to around 85% with typical use, as human error and inconsistent usage can reduce its effectiveness.

    Types of Condoms

    There are various types of condoms available on the market today. The most common type is the latex condom, which is highly effective in preventing the transmission of STIs. For individuals with latex allergies, there are non-latex alternatives such as polyurethane or polyisoprene condoms. These condoms are equally effective and provide a suitable option for those with sensitivities.

    Symptoms and Prevention of STIs

    While condoms are highly effective in reducing the risk of contracting STIs, it's important to note that they do not provide 100% protection. Some STIs, such as herpes and syphilis, can be transmitted through skin-to-skin contact and not just through bodily fluids. It's crucial to be aware of the common symptoms of STIs, which can include genital sores, abnormal discharge, itching, and burning sensations.

    Importance of Testing

    Regular testing is an essential part of maintaining good sexual health. Even if you consistently use condoms, it's still possible to contract an STI. Testing allows for early detection and treatment, which can prevent further complications and the spread of infections. TBD Health is a reliable and confidential healthcare provider that offers comprehensive STI testing and treatment both in person in Las Vegas and Denver or with their at home testing kits. Our experienced and sex-positive healthcare professionals can provide guidance, support, and necessary treatments to ensure optimal sexual health!
