Do condoms work? What type of condom is most effective?

Absolutely, yes, they work!

Latex and non-latex condoms have been tried and tested and retested by manufacturers and researchers. When a condom is used correctly and consistently every time you have oral, anal or vaginal sex, you prevent pregnancy and the transmission of STIs/STDs. No matter what type or brand of condom you choose, it’s important to learn how to use them (and make sure that they are not expired).
