A condom is the ally of choice to effectively prevent unwanted pregnancy and sexually transmitted infections.
The male condom, also called prophylactic, is a sheath or pouch made of flexible material (latex, polyurethane or polyisoprene) that is placed on an erect penis and that traps sperm during sexual intercourse. It therefore prevents sperm from reaching a partner’s mucous membrane, preventing pregnancy and the spread of Sexually transmitted infections (STIs).
Unprotected sexual intercourse can present a health risk. If abstinence is excluded, the condom (for men or for women) is the only contraceptive method that also protects against STIs, not only for the most prevalent ones (e.g., human papillomavirus or HPV), but also for the less common ones (e.g., human immunodeficiency virus or HIV).
The condom is one of the most commonly used contraceptive methods. Among other things, this can be explained by the fact that it is easy to use and because it offers peace of mind to its users.
Proper use of the male condom considerably increases its contraceptive effectiveness. Here is some information on the subject.
Speak to your pharmacist for additional information about condoms and other contraceptive methods.
