The History of Condoms
You think condoms are a new thing on the block? Think again. Condoms have been around a long time, probably longer than you think. Learn about how condoms got to where they are today.
Condoms can be expected to provide different levels of risk reduction for different STDs. There is no definitive study
about condom effectiveness for all STDs. Definitive data are lacking on the degree of risk reduction that latex condoms
provide for some STDs; for others, the evidence is considered inconclusive.
The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) states, “It is important to note that the lack of data about
the level of condom effectiveness indicates that more research is needed—not that latex condoms do not work.”
• Several studies have demonstrated that condoms can protect against the transmission of chlamydia, gonorrhea,
and trichomoniasis, and may protect against genital herpes and syphilis.
• Using a latex condom to prevent transmission of HIV is more than 10,000 times safer than not using a condom.
Pregnancy Prevention & Family Planning
Studies have shown that condoms are one of the most reliable methods for preventing unwanted pregnancy. In addition
to being effective, condoms are also inexpensive and are available without a prescription.
• Condoms are 98 percent effective in preventing pregnancy when used consistently and correctly.
• The first-year effectiveness rate in preventing pregnancy among typical condom users on average is 86 percent.
This includes pregnancies resulting from errors in condom use.
