Do all condoms protect from HIV?

There are condoms for both men and women. A man’s condom is a rubbery sheet that fits over the penis and prevents the sperms from getting into the vagina. They are latex-based and non-latex based. They come in a variety of shapes, styles, and sizes. A woman’s condom is a protective loose-fitting pouch with a ring on each end. It is inserted inside the vagina before having sex. Both condoms can be easily bought from any medical store without the need of a prescription.

A condom is used mostly to prevent pregnancy and transmission of STIs and STDs. Condoms are the only form of contraceptive that prevent sexually transmitted infections and diseases. When used correctly, a condom is highly effective in keeping STIs/STDs and pregnancy at bay.

For each time you and your partner get in action, a condom is a must. You and your partner must use a condom for oral, anal, and vaginal sex. It’s important to note that using a condom correctly is as crucial as using one in the first place.
