Condom use and HIV risk behaviors among U.S. adults: data from a national survey. (1/1516)

CONTEXT: How much condom use among U.S. adults varies by type of partner or by risk behavior is unclear. Knowledge of such differentials would aid in evaluating the progress being made toward goals for levels of condom use as part of the Healthy People 2000 initiative. METHODS: Data were analyzed from the 1996 National Household Survey of Drug Abuse, an annual household-based probability sample of the noninstitutionalized population aged 12 and older that measures the use of illicit drugs, alcohol and tobacco. The personal behaviors module included 25 questions covering sexual activity in the past year, frequency of condom use in the past year, circumstances of the last sexual encounter and HIV testing. RESULTS: Sixty-two percent of adults reported using a condom at last intercourse outside of an ongoing relationship, while only 19% reported using condoms when the most recent intercourse occurred within a steady relationship. Within ongoing relationships, condom use was highest among respondents who were younger, black, of lower income and from large metropolitan areas. Forty percent of unmarried adults used a condom at last sex, compared with the health objective of 50% for the year 2000. Forty percent of injecting drug users used condoms at last intercourse, compared with the 60% condom use objective for high-risk individuals. Significantly, persons at increased risk for HIV because of their sexual behavior or drug use were not more likely to use condoms than were persons not at increased risk; only 22% used condoms during last intercourse within an ongoing relationship. CONCLUSIONS: Substantial progress has been made toward national goals for increasing condom use. The rates of condom use by individuals at high risk of HIV need to be increased, however, particularly condom use with a steady partner.  (+info)

Community-level HIV intervention in 5 cities: final outcome data from the CDC AIDS Community Demonstration Projects. (2/1516)

OBJECTIVES: This study evaluated a theory-based community-level intervention to promote progress toward consistent condom and bleach use among selected populations at increased risk for HIV infection in 5 US cities. METHODS: Role-model stories were distributed, along with condoms and bleach, by community members who encouraged behavior change among injection drug users, their female sex partners, sex workers, non-gay-identified men who have sex with men, high-risk youth, and residents in areas with high sexually transmitted disease rates. Over a 3-year period, cross-sectional interviews (n = 15,205) were conducted in 10 intervention and comparison community pairs. Outcomes were measured on a stage-of-change scale. Observed condom carrying and intervention exposure were also measured. RESULTS: At the community level, movement toward consistent condom use with main (P < .05) and nonmain (P < .05) partners, as well as increased condom carrying (P < .0001), was greater in intervention than in comparison communities. At the individual level, respondents recently exposed to the intervention were more likely to carry condoms and to have higher stage-of-change scores for condom and bleach use. CONCLUSIONS: The intervention led to significant communitywide progress toward consistent HIV risk reduction.  (+info)

Safer sex strategies for women: the hierarchical model in methadone treatment clinics. (3/1516)

Women clients of a methadone maintenance treatment clinic were targeted for an intervention aimed to reduce unsafe sex. The hierarchical model was the basis of the single intervention session, tested among 63 volunteers. This model requires the educator to discuss and demonstrate a full range of barriers that women might use for protection, ranking these in the order of their known efficacy. The model stresses that no one should go without protection. Two objections, both untested, have been voiced against the model. One is that, because of its complexity, women will have difficulty comprehending the message. The second is that, by demonstrating alternative strategies to the male condom, the educator is offering women a way out from persisting with the male condom, so that instead they will use an easier, but less effective, method of protection. The present research aimed at testing both objections in a high-risk and disadvantaged group of women. By comparing before and after performance on a knowledge test, it was established that, at least among these women, the complex message was well understood. By comparing baseline and follow-up reports of barriers used by sexually active women before and after intervention, a reduction in reports of unsafe sexual encounters was demonstrated. The reduction could be attributed directly to adoption of the female condom. Although some women who had used male condoms previously adopted the female condom, most of those who did so had not used the male condom previously. Since neither theoretical objection to the hierarchical model is sustained in this population, fresh weight is given to emphasizing choice of barriers, especially to women who are at high risk and relatively disempowered. As experience with the female condom grows and its unfamiliarity decreases, it would seem appropriate to encourage women who do not succeed with the male condom to try to use the female condom, over which they have more control.  (+info)

Village-based AIDS prevention in a rural district in Uganda. (4/1516)

OBJECTIVE: To design, implement and evaluate a village-based AIDS prevention programme in a rural district in north-western Uganda. A baseline KAP survey of the general population was carried out to design a district-wide information campaign and condom promotion programme. Eighteen months later the impact achieved was measured through a second KAP survey, using the same methodology. METHODS: Anonymous structured interviews were conducted in March 1991 and October 1992 with 1486 and 1744 randomly selected individuals age 15-49, respectively. RESULTS: At 18 months, 60% of respondents had participated in an information session in the past year (47% women, 71% men) and 42% had received a pamphlet about AIDS (26% women, 58% men). Knowledge about AIDS, high initially (94%), reached 98%. More respondents knew that the incubation period is longer than one year (from 29% to 40%), and were willing to take care of a PWA (from 60% to 77%). Knowledge about condoms increased from 26 to 63% in women and 57 to 91% in men. Ever use of condoms among persons having engaged in casual sex in the past year increased from 6 to 33% in women, and 27 to 48% in men. Fifty per cent of condom users criticized lack of regular access to condoms. CONCLUSIONS: This is the first documented example of the impact a village-based AIDS prevention programme can achieve in a rural African community. Critical areas to be improved were identified, such as: women must be given better access to information, more attention must be paid to explain the asymptomatic state of HIV infection in appropriate terms, and condom social marketing must be developed.  (+info)

Using condom data to assess the impact of HIV/AIDS preventive interventions. (5/1516)

The effective evaluation of preventive activities depends on the identification of indicators and the selection of appropriate outcome measures which reflect the goals of the intervention. An increase in condom use has been seen as a positive sign of the impact of HIV/AIDS public education. This paper examines possible sources of data relating to condom use in the context of assessing public response to the AIDS epidemic, with particular reference to methodological challenges presented by each; issues relating to the validity of data, problems of interpretation and the scope for improvement. A multiple indicator approach, using several types of data in unison, is advocated. Conclusions drawn from the multiple indicator approach are likely to be firmer and sounder than those drawn from the single indicator approach, and are more likely to offer insight into the mechanisms which influence particular outcomes.  (+info)

Relaying the message of safer sex: condom races for community-based skills training. (6/1516)

This paper describes a community-based HIV prevention program designed to improve confidence in condom use skills by giving community members 'hands-on' experience in using condoms correctly. A condom race activity which had been effective in increasing condom skills confidence among university students in the US was modified and implemented with the general population in rural Northeast Thailand. In addition to providing training in condom use skills, the condom race was part of an integrated condom promotion and distribution campaign which responded to needs identified by the community, built upon the credibility and influence of local leaders and peers, and extended access to condoms into rural communities. Local leaders who had participated in a training-of-trainers program organized condom races in their communities, serving as positive role models for community acceptance of condom use. The condom race stimulated community discussion about condoms and increased participants' feelings of self-efficacy in correct condom use. Participation in the condom race activity was particularly empowering to women, who reported increased confidence in their ability to use condoms and to suggest using condoms with their partners after the race.  (+info)

Cost as a barrier to condom use: the evidence for condom subsidies in the United States. (7/1516)

OBJECTIVES: This study sought to determine the impact of price on condom use. METHODS: A program based on distribution of condoms at no charge was replaced with one providing low-cost condoms (25 cents). Pretest and posttest surveys asked about condom use among persons reporting 2 or more sex partners. RESULTS: At pretest, 57% of respondents had obtained free condoms, and 77% had used a condom during their most recent sexual encounter. When the price was raised to 25 cents, the respective percentages decreased to 30% and 64%. CONCLUSIONS: Cost is a barrier to condom use. Free condoms should be distributed to encourage their use by persons at risk for HIV and other sexually transmitted diseases.  (+info)

Contraceptive needs of women attending a genitourinary medicine clinic for the first time. (8/1516)

OBJECTIVE: To assess the need for, and potential uptake of, a contraceptive service within a genitourinary medicine (GUM) clinic. METHODS: 544 women, median age 17 years (range 13-54) including 142 teenagers, attending the Fife GUM clinics serving a semirural population of 350,000 for the first time in the 12 month period from 1 September 1995 to 31 August 1996 were interviewed. RESULTS: Contraception was required by 353, of whom only 5% (29) were at risk of unplanned pregnancy, although half (15) of these were teenagers. 23 of 29 (79%) stated that they would access contraception at a GUM clinic if it were available. Of women using contraception, 67% (217/324) were taking the oral contraceptive pill (OCP), of whom 177 obtained supplies from their general practitioners and were happy with this. However, 92/177 (52%) stated that they would access the OCP at GUM clinics if it were available. Overall, of the 243 women who stated that they would access contraception at the GUM clinic, 23 of whom were currently at risk of an unplanned pregnancy, the demand was principally for condoms and the OCP. CONCLUSION: The majority of women attending GUM clinics for the first time are using contraception, or have deliberately chosen not to do so. Only 5% were at risk of unplanned pregnancy. In general, the women using contraception were happy with their current source of contraception, but about two thirds would use a contraceptive service at GUM clinics if it were available at the time they were attending the clinic. It was found that teenagers accounted for half of those women at risk of unwanted pregnancy. However, the majority of teenagers requiring contraception would consider obtaining it from GUM clinics.  (+info)

For the first time in the UK, this study found significant associations linking measures of condom problems to STI risk amongst MSM. Although condom errors and other problems have been increasingly recognised as a likely factor in reducing condom effectiveness [16] and the correlates of condom problems in men have been explored [7, 17], biological end point evidence of an association with STI acquisition is scarce in all groups and absent in MSM. An association between condom problems and incident chlamydial and gonococcal infections was shown in a small subsample (21 infections in 130 individuals) of the large Project Respect intervention trial [18]. In a study of 1973 consistent condom users, condom errors were reported much less frequently by MSM than men who have sex with women and an association between condom problems and prevalent STI was seen in heterosexual but not homosexual subjects [13]. We found strong univariate associations between condom proficiency and problem scores and ...
Condoms are not 100% effective at preventing HIV transmission. When used correctly and consistently, condoms are highly effective and reliable in reducing the risk of transmitting HIV and most sexually transmitted diseases (STDs). Condoms should be used EVERY TIME during sex when transmission of HIV (or other STDs) is possible. When condoms fail to work properly, it is most often because of improper and/or inconsistent use.. Condoms may not work as well against STDs spread through skin-to-skin touching, like herpes and genital warts, because condoms may not cover the infected areas.. Following these basic rules will reduce the already small chance of condom failure: - Experiment with different condoms and practice putting them on before intercourse. - Practice talking with your partner about your desire and intention to use condoms. - Use latex (rubber) or polyurethane (plastic) condoms. Avoid "natural skin" condoms, which have tiny holes, which may allow HIV and other STDs to be transmitted. - ...
This study evaluated predictors of risky and safer behavior in a sample of low-income African American adolescents, assessed their perceptions of the risk associated with their sexual behavior, and examined differences between adolescents who used condoms consistently, inconsistently, or engaged only in unprotected intercourse. African American adolescents (N = 312) completed measures related to AIDS knowledge, frequency of condom use, attitudes toward condoms, and sexual behavior over the preceding 2 months. Multiple regression analyses for the sexually active youths (N = 114) revealed that lower self-efficacy, higher perceived risk, and male gender were associated with high-risk behavior. Positive attitudes toward condoms and younger age had the strongest association with condom use. Consistent condom users were more knowledgeable and held more positive attitudes toward condoms, and nonusers were older. Regardless of their behavior, the adolescents generally did not perceive themselves to be a risk
The Reality® Female Condom is a sheath made of polyurethane with a ring at both ends. The female condom is more expensive than the male condom, but it can be inserted up to 8 hours prior to intercourse. It also provides protection against sexually transmitted diseases. These condoms are 88 to 98% effective. If used consistently and properly every time, the risk of pregnancy is very small. Condoms provide protection against pregnancy and sexually transmitted diseases (gonorrhea, chlamydia, and HIV). The disadvantages of condoms are that they must be used every time with every intercourse event. Women are at risk for pregnancy and infection if the condom is placed on the penis after the first penetration, even if the condom is used before ejaculation. Condoms can break, tear, or fall off during sex. Always put the condom on the penis before any genital-to-genital contact. The fluid at the tip of the penis contains sperm and may also carry infection. Use enough water-based lubricant to decrease ...
As heterosexual HIV transmission increases, effective behavioral interventions to increase condom use are needed. Interventions should be low cost and accessible to large segments of the at-risk population. This study will evaluate the efficacy of a behavioral intervention designed to increase condom use in at-risk, heterosexually active women and men. The intervention is computer-delivered and will be provided in health care settings. The study will also examine additional psychosocial mediators of condom use by testing the predictive efficacy of the Multifaceted Model of HIV Risk.. Participants will be recruited from four health clinic sites that serve local ethnic minority communities. The participants will be randomly assigned to either an individualized intervention designed to increase condom use or to an HIV information comparison group. All participants will receive comparable group-specific informational materials at study entry and at Months 2 and 4. Participants in the intervention ...
Size. Most condoms (external and internal) are manufactured as one-size-fits-all. However, when it comes to external condoms, the standard sizes and the tightness of the elastic rings vary by manufacturer. They generally fit folks whose erect penis is average-sized - anywhere from four to seven inches when erect. Some external condoms are "snugger fit," while others are "larger sized." It may be helpful to pick up a variety to figure out whats appealing and fits for you and your partner. A snug, yet comfortable fit decreases the chances that a condom will slip off during penetrative sex.. Texture. When reading external condom packaging, brands list descriptive terms, such as "ultra thin," "sensitive," "high sensation," or "extra strength." Some people prefer thinner condoms that allow for more sensation. Others prefer thicker condoms to feel more secure (although studies have shown that "ultra thin" condoms are just as effective as regular condoms). Other choices include "ribbed" or "studded" ...
Condoms work by keeping semen (the fluid that contains sperm) from entering the vagina. The male condom is placed on the penis when it becomes erect. It is unrolled all the way to the base of the penis while holding the tip of the condom to leave some extra room at the end. This creates a space for semen after ejaculation and makes it less likely that the condom will break.. After the male ejaculates, he should hold the condom at the base of the penis as he pulls out of the vagina. He must do this while the penis is still erect. This prevents the condom from slipping off when he gets soft, which could let sperm enter the vagina.. The female condom is inserted into the vagina using the closed-end ring. The other ring creates the open end of the condom. The condom then lines the walls of the vagina, creating a barrier between the sperm and the cervix. The female condom can be inserted up to 8 hours before intercourse. It should be removed immediately after sex and before standing up.. The male and ...
1600s. Once Fallopius published a work on condom STI protection, people became more skeptical of the idea of the condom and controversy on whether to use it or not began to stir in scientific and religious communities. In 1605, Catholic theologian Leonardus Lessius claimed that condoms are immoral, thus becoming the first documented religious figure who opposed the use of the condom. Condoms made from animal intestines became widely available to the public. Even though condoms were now widely available, many people reused them because of their expensive nature. Reusing linen condoms is unsanitary and can even increase the possibility of spreading STIs, but many people were not aware of this fact. Published by the English Birth Rate Commission in 1666 for the first time ever in recorded history, the word "condons" (which eventually evolved into todays English word "condoms") was credited for the drop in birth rate. 1700s. By this time, the public was becoming much more aware of condoms and their ...
The instructions on every packet of condoms I have ever seen (including condoms in countries outside the United States) clearly state that once the man has ejaculated, he needs to withdraw and dispose of the condom promptly. Proper withdrawal means you grip the ring firmly, pull out completely and slide the condom off (by the ring! Obviously you dont just pull it off at the tip cause thats messy, and risks rubber-band-like snap-back). Proper disposal means tie off the condom and toss it in the rubbish. Do not flush down the toilet.. The reason you must stop once ejaculation is complete is that the penis loses its erection pretty quickly after orgasm. Once the erection starts to subside, the condom immediately loosens, and youll risk seepage and slippage -- generally termed as condom failure and improper use. Essentially, if you do not follow the direction to a T, then the condoms effectiveness cannot be guaranteed. So is there a chance of pregnancy? With an improperly used condom, yes there ...
A condom is a device most commonly used during sexual intercourse. It is put on a mans erect penis and physically blocks ejaculated semen from entering the body of a sexual partner. Condoms are used to prevent transmission of sexually transmitted diseases (STDs-such as gonorrhea, syphilis, and HIV) and pregnancy. Because condoms are waterproof, elastic, and durable, they are also used in a variety of secondary applications. These range from creating waterproof microphones to protecting rifle barrels from clogging. Foot travelers in Amazonic South America wear condoms when wading through water to prevent a small catfish known as candirú from swimming into the urethra. The fish is attracted to the scent of blood and urine. What is generally called a condom is the male condom, a sheath or covering which fits over a mans penis, and which is closed at one end. There is also now a female condom, or vaginal sheath, which is used by a woman and which fits inside her vagina. Below is about the male ...
There is a significant risk of HIV transmission to HIV-uninfected partners in HIV-discordant couples. While condom use has been a major component of most AIDS prevention programs since the mid-1980s, there has been little emphasis on promoting condom use within stable partnerships. The most effective way to promote condom use among discordant couples remains largely unknown.. A pilot study to assess the acceptability of intervention precedes the main study. The Phase I study recruits 15 HIV-infected men and 15 HIV-infected women and their partners at each of three sites (India, Thailand, and Uganda). Volunteers participate in a multi-session group-based condom promotion program for approximately 12 months. Couples are organized into small groups consisting of 4 to 6 couples per group. Each group meets for a total of 4 sessions within a 2- to 4-week period. Follow-up interviews are conducted at Months 1 and 3 following completion of the intervention. ...
Do you think condoms are x-rated? I didnt think so.. Yet, condoms seem far too sexy for Twitter. Lucky Bloke, where I am founder and CEO, has been inundated for months with emails from "Twitter for Business," urging us to try out Twitter Ads and turn our followers into customers. However, after we tried to participate in the program with a "Tired of lousy condoms?" sponsored Tweet, Twitter banned us from advertising entirely.. According to their confusing ad policies, any content thats sexual (including safe sex education) and ALL contraceptives are prohibited. Really? Seriously.. This is simply unacceptable. Will you join us by signing our petition to Twitter to change its policy around global health? Join us as we #Tweet4Condoms!. Condoms save lives - and removing stigma will save more lives. This is not avant-garde or edgy positioning. Condoms are a necessary health item globally.. Our simple request for Twitter:. Kindly remove condoms (and the ability to share sexual health information) ...
The bottom condom is a bit more expensive. Fortunately, MAPs Risk Reduction team has plenty. Just ask us for one next time you see us out and about or stop by our office.. The bottom condom is a great alternative to traditional condoms, but some people do have problems using them. They may not be for everyone. Compared to regular condoms, rates of slippage and rectal bleeding were slightly higher with the bottom condom, but not by much.. This great alternative to traditional condoms is available, but its not widely used. Why is that? Why are you just now hearing about the bottom condom?. Because of homophobia.. Did you know that the bottom condom was originally created and tested on gay men? The bottom condom couldnt be approved because of the Food and Drug Administrationss position in the 1990s that to do so would run counter to sodomy laws. According to the Bay Area Reporter at the time:. "The invention, which was tested on Chicago gay male couples in a 1990 trial, is a wide tube of ...

Successful condom promotion and distribution efforts require a better understanding of target populations mind-set of condoms before any intervention. Because of condoms scientifically known ability to protect humans against transmission and acquisition of human immuno-deficiency virus (HIV) and other sexually-transmitted infections (STIs) [1, 2], their correct and consistent use is highly recommended [3]. In sub-Saharan Africa where condom use is very low [4], the challenge remains being how to maximize the use of condoms especially in areas with culturally rooted resistances to sexual behaviour change. Research attributes this to social values, perceptions, attitudes towards sex and condoms and traditional ways of practicing sex on one hand, and the systemic factors such as supply- and demand-related conditions in different social settings on the other [5-7]. While the need for promotion and distribution of condoms may be well-recognized by programs, understanding users contexts holds ...
Thirty-two per cent of men were living with HIV (280 men). This includes 42 men who were not taking antiretroviral treatment and the majority of these men reported no condom use (64%). Attendees with HIV tended to report accelerating use of drugs for sex after their HIV diagnosis. Among men on treatment, condom use was somewhat higher, although 51% reported using condoms on less than half the occasions they had sex and 25% reported no condom use. Poor adherence sufficient to lead to viral rebound - and a risk of onward transmission - was not identified.. Condom use among HIV-negative men was mixed: 40% reported using condoms on less than half the occasions they had sex, and 10% reported no condom use at all. David Stuart told the conference that starting in 2012, staff at the clinic began to notice that around 80% of requests for PEP were connected with episodes of chemsex. Thirty per cent of HIV-negative men attending the clinic had taken PEP at least once in the past two years and 25% had ...
Jimmy Akin promised to follow up his analysis yesterday on what the Pope actually said on the subject of condoms and he has done so in an excellent follow up post "Understanding the Popes Dilemma on Condoms".. I expect the media to get what the Pope has said wrong and they never disappoint. Though while it seems that almost all Catholic bloggers understood the nuance of the Popes comment this can not be said for all commenters who seemed to be annoyed that the Pope has made some concession. This idea starts from an idea about a "ban on condoms" as if condoms in and of themselves are gravely evil. If I were to take a condom and make a balloon animal out of it I would incur no sin other than perhaps bad taste. In fact as I have joked before I could pretty much wear a condom anytime I want except for during sex with my wife. So if you want to wear a condom - go ahead, except during the marital act. What makes the use of a condom gravely sinful is when it is used as a device to prevent conception ...
To the best of our knowledge, this study is the first to examine the factors associated with condom use among FSWs working at hairs salons in China. Overall, the FSWs in this study were relatively older, had low educational levels, were typically married, had children, and were usually not local residents. Such characteristics are consistent with low-tier FSWs in other parts of China [6, 7, 28, 29]. Lower levels of education may lead to less knowledge about STIs and less exposure to STI prevention and may be associated with less frequent or less proficient condom use; FSWs with lower levels of education who were also older were at greater risk for STI infections [21-23, 30]. The vulnerable demographic characteristics of hair salon FSWs and evident risks of HIV and STIs among low-tier FSWs [17-21]) warrants that hair salon FSWs should be well covered in HIV/STI surveillance and behavioural intervention programs for FSW in China.. We found that the rate of self-reported consistent condom use over ...
For men who find that condoms sometimes, um, lessen their enthusiasm, some good news: Durex may soon be selling erection-enhacing condoms with a pharmaceutical boost.. The condoms, developed by UK biotech company Futura Medical, are lined with a gel that increases blood flow. The gels active ingredient, glyceryl nitrate, has been used for as a vasodilator for over a century. The tricky part was getting the gel to stay in the condom without degrading the latex, but the company found a way (and quickly patented it).. Men who enrolled in the clinical trial took the condoms home and gave them a test run (the things we do for science!). Both they and their partners reported longer, larger, and harder erections, presumably while grinning.. The condoms are now being reviewed by European regulators, and if approved, they could be on shelves there later this year. The product is meant specifically for men who have trouble maintaining an erection while wearing a condom, but theres no prescription ...
The history of condoms goes back at least several centuries, and perhaps beyond. For most of their history, condoms have been used both as a method of birth control, and as a protective measure against sexually transmitted diseases. Condoms have been made from a variety of materials; prior to the 19th century, chemically treated linen and animal tissue (intestine or bladder) are the best documented varieties. Rubber condoms gained popularity in the mid-19th century, and in the early 20th century major advances were made in manufacturing techniques. Prior to the introduction of the combined oral contraceptive pill, condoms were the most popular birth "control" method in the Western world. In the second half of the 20th century, the low cost of condoms contributed to their importance in family planning programs throughout the developing world. Condoms have also become increasingly important in efforts to fight the AIDS pandemic. The oldest condoms ever excavated were found in a cesspit located in ...
A female condom (also known as a femidom or internal condom) is a device that is used during sexual intercourse as a barrier contraceptive to reduce the risk of sexually transmitted infections (STIs - such as gonorrhea, syphilis, and HIV, though its protection against them is inferior to that by male condoms) and unintended pregnancy. Invented by Danish MD Lasse Hessel, it is worn internally by the female partner and provides a physical barrier to prevent exposure to ejaculated semen or other body fluids. Female condoms can be used by the receptive partner during anal sex. The female condom is a thin, soft, loose-fitting sheath with a flexible ring at each end. They typically come in various sizes. For most vaginas, a moderately sized condom is adequate; women who have recently given birth should try a large size first. The inner ring at the closed end of the sheath is used to insert the condom inside the vagina and to hold it in place during intercourse. The rolled outer ring at the open end of ...
infections, since the vulva is partially covered by an outer ring that keeps the device in place.. Female condoms vs sliced bread. "Greatest invention since sliced bread, better than male condoms. Its frustrating, that its not readily available everywhere…". "My gf says it takes a little getting used to putting them in. But… they feel WAY better than a condom. :-)". "My boyfriend and I both love the female condom… Downsides are the need for extra lube inside the condom and it is a bit more messy to clean up afterward compared to the male condom.". "Added feeling when the ring hits. Enjoyed a lot. Hard to use at first, but once you get uses to it, its nice. Can be little embarrassing putting it in.". Reviews of the FC2 from undercovercondoms.com. User feedback is also pretty good.. A 2011 survey found that 86% of women were interested in using the method again and 95% would recommend trying them to friends.. "Many people report that female condoms heighten sexual pleasure," says Saskia ...
The transmission level of AIDS, when a condom is used, is VERY VERY VERY low. A condom is VERY effective at stopping the AIDS virus from being transmitted. Other STDs are capable of being transmitted through a condom, however, the transmission rate of ALL STDs is HIGHLY reduced by the use of a condom. NOTHING is 100% effective, if youre active, but condoms DO significantly cut your risk to an almost miniscule chance of transmission. Abstinance IS the best way to stop the transmission of STDs, but with proper use, and care, condoms are HIGHLY effective ...
Lets shift the responsibility for safe sex back to the individual. The present expectation that condoms and lube will be provided can give gay men an excuse not to practice safe sex. People cant count on those condoms being there or knowing where they are at the moment of need. This is from an article stating why condom distribution is important, but condoms and lube are not in all venues, and the value of distribution to bars diminished when Internet websites became an option to connect for sex ...
University students form an important constituency in interventions against HIV and AIDS. The majority of university students are between ages 18 and 30 years, which, according to recent surveys, is the age category at the highest risk of HIV infection. Even though there is currently no comprehensive statistical data on the HIV prevalence at South African institutions of higher learning, a number of studies have noted increasing AIDS-related deaths and sicknesses among students. This highlights the need for effective intervention against HIV infections within this community. Condom use remains the most effective intervention against HIV infection within sexually active populations. This paper examines perceptions of public-sector condoms and their impact on condom use among university students, based on the findings of research conducted at three universities in KwaZulu-Natal Province, South Africa. Study findings indicate that public-sector condoms are perceived as ineffective, smelly and even ...

Background Men who have sex with other men (MSM) are a vulnerable population in Africa that has been insufficiently explored. Given the high rate of bisexuality among MSM (73% in the past year), it is important to understand their risk-taking behaviors regarding both men and women. Methodology/Principal Findings A socio-behavioral survey was carried out in 2007 among 501 MSM recruited using the snowball sampling method. We explore in this article why a condom was not used during last sexual intercourse with a man and with a woman, taking into account the respondents characteristics, type of relationship and the context of the sexual act. In the survey, 489 men reported that they had had sexual intercourse at least once with another man during the previous year, and 358 with a man and with a woman. The main risk factors for not using a condom at last sexual intercourse with another man were having sex in a public place (aOR = 6.26 [95%CI: 2.71-14.46]), non-participation in an MSM prevention program

The surest way to avoid transmission of sexually transmitted diseases, including genital herpes, is to abstain from sexual contact, or to be in a long-term mutually monogamous relationship with a partner who has been tested and is known to be uninfected.. Genital ulcer diseases can occur in both male and female genital areas that are covered or protected by a latex condom, as well as in areas that are not covered. Correct and consistent use of latex condoms can reduce the risk of genital herpes.. The consistent and correct use of latex condoms is the best protection. However, condoms do not provide complete protection, because a herpes lesion may not be covered by the condom and viral shedding may occur. If you or your partner has genital herpes, it is best to abstain from sex when symptoms are present, and to use latex condoms between outbreaks.. Herpes can be spread from one part of the body to another during an outbreak. It is also possible to spread the herpes virus infection even if you are ...
The report also emphasizes the importance of routine screenings for pre-cancerous cells using the Pap test. The CDC estimates that approximately half the cases of cervical cancer that occur each year will occur in women who have never had a Pap test and an additional 10% will occur in women who were not screened in the last five years.. In addition, the CDC explains that condoms can be used in the fight against HPV and cervical cancer. It is true that condoms cannot provide complete protection from HPV, in part because infections may occur on sites not covered by the condom. However, the report says "laboratory studies have demonstrated that latex condoms provide an essentially impermeable barrier to particles the size of HPV" and that "studies of HPV infection in men demonstrate that most HPV infections are located on parts of the penis that would be covered by a condom." In addition, new research in June 2006 showed that young women who used condoms were 70% less likely to contract HPV and ...

OBJECTIVE--To determine whether HIV testing and counselling increased condom use and decreased heterosexual transmission of HIV in discordant couples. DESIGN--Prospective study. SETTING--Kigali, the capital of Rwanda. SUBJECTS--Cohabiting couples with discordant HIV serology results. MAIN OUTCOME MEASURES--Condom use in the couple and HIV seroconversion in the negative partners. RESULTS--60 HIV discordant couples were identified, of whom 53 were followed for an average of 2.2 years. The proportion of discordant couples using condoms increased from 4% to 57% after one year of follow up. During follow up two of the 23 HIV negative men and six of the 30 HIV negative women seroconverted (seroconversion rates of 4 and 9 per 100 person years). The rate among women was less than half that estimated for similar women in discordant couples whose partners had not been serotested. Condom use was less common among those who seroconverted (100% v 5%, p = 0.01 in men; 67% v 25%, p = 0.14 in women). ...

Well, Wolf, I think it was - given the enormous stature that Colin Powell rightly has, not only in America but in the world community - it was a sad day. I dont think any administration has had a worse day since boxers and briefs on MTV. And the truth is that Colin Powell had an opportunity here to reaffirm this presidents commitment to abstinence as the best choice for our young people, and he chose not to do that in the first instance, but - and so I think its very sad.. The other part is that, frankly, condoms are a very, very poor protection against sexually transmitted diseases, and in that sense, Wolf, this was - the secretary of state may be inadvertently misleading millions of young people and endangering lives. ...
. Making love just got eco-friendly thanks to LovePack Condoms! These condoms are made of rubber from sustainable forests and are produced in a climate-neutral way. The latex, the core-product of condoms, comes from the New Ambadi Plantation in Tamil Nadu (South India). Their rubber trees are being handled in a sustainable and durable way. The plantation is FSC certified and gives its own employees and the local villagers training about handling the environment with care. The environmental friendly extraction of latex in this area makes the natural vegetation flourish again and animals that have disappeared are returning.

Remember to always store your condoms away from sunlight, in a cool, dry place. Also, check the expiration date on your condom package and never use a condom that has expired. If you cannot find an expiration date (usually marked as "Exp"), then check for the date of manufacture (usually marked as "MFG"). Do not use any condoms five years after the date of manufacture. If your condoms contain spermicide, then throw them out two years after the date of manufacture ...
Men are idiots. Hence the common chorus of "but using a condom doesnt feel good." (The fact that having AIDS and/or babies feels much worse seems to have escaped these folks.) To be fair: The condom is still fairly primitive; the use of latex was the last major innovation (sorry, Trojan, your "fire and ice" condoms are weird and dont count), and that was decades ago. This is 2013! We are developing invisibility cloaks! We have cars that drive themselves! We have a giant telescope that can see into the past! There have been attempts to modernize the condom, but none have gone into wide production. And that means our best tool to fight the spread of sexually-transmitted diseases basically the finger of a rubber glove. ...

Before discounting this idea as a pathetic and salacious attempt to grab attention, hear it out. In any sort of survival situation, drinking water is a must. And the reality is, even if you are fortunate enough to actually find life-saving water, you still might need a way to transport it. Thats where a condom comes in. According to Cody Lundin, author of the survival book 98.6 Degrees, a condom can easily hold up to a gallon of water -- enough to keep you alive for a full day -- without getting overstretched [source: Lundin]. It also has the very important benefit of being small and easy to carry around when not filled with life-sustaining liquids. Still, Lundin points out that it can be tricky actually filling a condom with water when you cant hook it straight up to a kitchen nozzle. In order to better your chances when dealing with a standing source of water, like a puddle or a pond, Lundin says that its best to stretch out the neck of the condom. Ever versatile, condoms can also be used ...

Condoms offer moderate protection against HSV-2 in both men and women, with consistent condom users having a 30%-lower risk of HSV-2 acquisition compared with those who never use condoms.[49] A female condom can provide greater protection than the male condom, as it covers the labia.[50] The virus cannot pass through a synthetic condom, but a male condoms effectiveness is limited[51] because herpes ulcers may appear on areas not covered by it. Neither type of condom prevents contact with the scrotum, anus, buttocks, or upper thighs, areas that may come in contact with ulcers or genital secretions during sexual activity. Protection against herpes simplex depends on the site of the ulcer; therefore, if ulcers appear on areas not covered by condoms, abstaining from sexual activity until the ulcers are fully healed is one way to limit risk of transmission.[52] The risk is not eliminated, however, as viral shedding capable of transmitting infection may still occur while the infected partner is ...

Gender power inequities are believed to play a key role in the HIV epidemic through their effects on womens power in sexual relationships. We hypothesized that lack of sexual power, measured with a four-point relationship control scale and by a womans experience of forced sex with her most recent partner, would decrease the likelihood of consistent condom use and increase the risk for HIV infection among sexually experienced, 15- to 24-year-old women in South Africa. While limited sexual power was not directly associated with HIV, it was associated with inconsistent condom use: women with low relationship control were 2.10 times more likely to use condoms inconsistently (95% confidence interval [CI] 1.17-3.78), and women experiencing forced sex were 5.77 times more likely to inconsistently use condoms (95% CI 1.86-17.91). Inconsistent condom use was, in turn, significantly associated with HIV infection (adjusted odds ratio 1.58, 95% CI 1.10-2.27).

Background: The National Strategy for Sexual Health and HIV for England (2001) emphasised the role of HIV services in reducing secondary transmission of HIV through prevention work with HIV infected people.. Objective: To determine the sexual behaviour, condom use, and disclosure of HIV status of HIV infected heterosexuals attending an inner London HIV clinic.. Design: Cross sectional questionnaire study of heterosexual HIV infected individuals attending an HIV outpatient clinic.. Methods: We collected demographic data for all respondents and sexual behaviour data for those sexually active over the past year using a self administered questionnaire. Viral load and CD4 count for responders and age, sex, ethnicity, viral load, and CD4 count for non-responders were obtained from the clinic database.. Results: The response rate was 47.3% (n = 142). 100 participants reported being sexually active in the past year, of whom 73% used condoms when they last had vaginal sex. Knowledge of partners HIV ...

Even the unpleasantness of a sexually transmitted disease (STD) still has some men refusing to use condoms regularly, reports a study published in the American Journal of Health Behavior (January/February 2004). The study found that two thirds of men with a primary sexual partner and one third of those without a primary partner told researchers they did not use condoms consistently. Study author Diane Grimley, PhD, found that even after seeking treatment for an STD and recognizing the protective value of condoms, men still refuse to use them. "The situation in which men reported the least confidence in using condoms with a main partner was the one in which they wanted their partner to know that they were committed to the relationship," said Dr. Grimley. ...

Although condom use reduces the risk of sexually transmitted diseases (STDs) such as human immunodeficiency virus and gonorrhea, until recently the effectiveness of condoms in the prevention of genital herpes was unclear. Condoms are thought to offer incomplete protection from herpes simplex because the virus may infect external genitalia not covered by the condom. Herpes simplex virus type 2 (HSV-2) is the predominant cause of genital herpes; a small percentage of infections are caused by herpes simplex virus type 1 (HSV-1). Wald and colleagues studied the association between self-reported condom use and acquisition of HSV-1 and HSV-2 in a cohort of high-risk adults who participated in a trial for an HSV-2 vaccine that was later shown to be ineffective.. The study included 1,862 HSV-2 seronegative persons who were recruited from 22 clinics in the United States. Inclusion criteria were four or more sex partners or one or more STDs in the previous year. The average age was 27 years; 64 percent of ...

Theres no doubt that condom use is crucial in reducing the risk of sexually transmitted diseases (STDs), including human immunodeficiency virus (HIV). But using condoms doesnt 100 percent guarantee that you will never get any STD.. "People think condoms will protect against everything, but they do not," Dr. Iglesia said. "They dont necessarily protect against herpes, and condoms can break.".

For example, some STDs, such as gonorrhea, chlamydia, and HIV, can only be passed through genital fluids, so youre likely to have greater protection against these when using a condom. Other STDs, however, like herpes, human papillomavirus, and syphilis, are transmitted by skin-to-skin contact that may occur even when you use a condom.. Additionally, Dr. Iglesia noted, people may not realize that oral sex can put you at risk of STDs, too.. "You can get ...
