"An Armour against pleasure, and a cobweb against infection" – Has the condom withstood the test of time

udy results emphasis that men should be thought that the incorrect use of condom can lead to infection. Researchers reviewed 1124 people visiting an STD clinic about their use of condoms and the mistakes they made while using a condom in the past 30 days.

More than half of the people interviewed during the study said they had not used a condom the last time they had sex. Within the past month, more than 40 percent of both men and women said they had not squeezed air out of the tip of the condom before using it. More than 40 percent of men and more than 30 percent of women reported that a condom broke during intercourse in the last month. One third of men and women said they had not held the base of a condom during withdrawal, and 24 percent of men and 30 percent of women did not leave a space at the tip of the condom. Many people also admitted that they started having sex before using a condom.

Women were more likely to say they had not left space at the tip or removed air from the tip of a condom before using it, while men were more likely to say they put on a condom inside out or had a condom break. More than 15 percent of study participants had either gonorrhea or Chlamydia. Men who said a condom had broken during the last 30 days were more than 90 percent more likely to have gonorrhea.

The tendency to assume that consistent condom users are using condoms correctly seriously underestimates their risk of transmitting or contracting STDs or becoming pregnant unintentionally. Thus it's not enough to tell people to use condoms - they also need to learn how to use them correctly.

Further Information on Gonorrhea on Medindia:

Sexually Transmitted Diseases (STDs) were also known as venereal diseases. These are transmitted from one person to another through body contact during sex. What they all have in common is that they can be spread by sexual contact, including vagina, anal and oral sex.
