Talk Condoms

Talk Condoms

Talk to your partners and friends about condoms. There are more HIV prevention options than ever before, and condoms are still a highly effective option to prevent both HIV and other STDs.

If you use them the right way every time you have sex, condoms are highly effective in preventing HIV infection. But it’s important to educate yourself about how to use them the right way.

Condoms can also help prevent other sexually transmitted diseases (STDs) you can get through body fluids, like gonorrhea and chlamydia. However, they provide less protection against STDs spread through skin-to-skin contact, like human papillomavirus or HPV (genital warts), genital herpes, and syphilis.
