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