Benefits of using condoms

When used correctly, condoms are 98% effective in preventing pregnancies and STIs.

Condoms can be used with another form of birth control, such as the pill or IUD, for extra protection.

Condoms come in different sizes, colors, and even flavors.

Condoms have no side effects and don’t require a prescription to purchase. Allergic to latex? Polyethylene condoms can be used
