Do condoms always prevent HIV transmission?

Condoms are the most effective technique to prevent STIs and unplanned pregnancy. Condoms, which are 98 percent effective, can prevent most STIs, such as Chlamydia and Gonorrhoeae. Condoms, on the other hand, do not protect you from all sexually transmitted illnesses (STIs) that are spread by skin-to-skin contact, such as herpes, genital warts, and syphilis.

Condoms are little pouches that prevent sperm from entering the vaginal canal. Male and female condoms are available:

Male Condoms: A male condom is worn on the penis. Latex is a type of rubber that is widely utilized. Some, however, are made of latex-free materials like polyurethane or polyisoprene, which are safe for people who are allergic to latex.

A female condom is put into the vaginal canal. A flexible ring is attached to each end. The ring has two ends: one that is closed and goes into the vaginal hole, and the other that is open and sits outside the opening. Female condoms are now available in latex-free materials for those who are allergic to it.

Importance of condoms during sexual intercourse:

The only approach to avoid STI transmission during penetrative intercourse is to use internal and exterior condoms.
Condoms can be found in a number of stores and community health centers. They’re not expensive, and they don’t require a prescription to buy.
Condoms, both internal and exterior, can assist you avoid getting pregnant.
Condoms are effective against STDs when used for oral, anal, and vaginal sex. And here’s the best part: condoms allow you to focus on pleasure and your partner without having to worry about pregnancy or STDs. Better sex is safer because it prevents stress from ruining one’s mood.
Condoms can be used to supplement practically any other kind of birth control, including the pill, shot, ring, IUD, and implant.

Effectiveness of condoms in preventing STIs:

Condoms operate as a barrier against STDs that are spread through bodily fluids like sperm, vaginal fluids, and blood. 
Using a male or female condom can help prevent infection from spreading from an infected person to his or her partner. 
They’re better at avoiding STDs like Gonorrhoeae, chlamydia, trichomonas, hepatitis B, and HIV that transmit through the male urethral hole. 
STDs such as herpes, syphilis, and the human papillomavirus, which are spread through the skin or mucosal membrane, can also be prevented using them.

Can viruses pass through condoms?

Condoms considerably reduce the risk of STDs, but they do not fully eliminate the possibility of contracting one. 
Even while using a condom during intercourse, some STDs can be transferred or contracted. 
Skin-to-skin contact is another way for STDS to spread. So, if an infected region of your skin that isn’t covered by a condom comes into close contact with your partner’s exposed skin during the act, there’s a good possibility the virus/bacteria will be transmitted. 
This is because the region of the body not covered by a condom might act as a doorway for bacteria to enter or escape.
Condoms are less protective against some of the most common infections in recent years, such as human papillomavirus (HPV), which has a high risk of viral transmission through skin-to-skin contact, herpes simplex virus (HSV), genital herpes, syphilis, which is a highly contagious bacterial infection spread primarily through sexual contact, including oral and anal sex, pubic lice, which are parasites that attach to the skin
If a person is having sex, it is critical that they have regular STI tests, particularly if it is with a new partner or if the intercourse was unprotected (sex without a condom).
