Never Trust A Condom
We all know that it’s safe to use a condom during sexual intercourse, right? Well, it’s safer. Condoms should never be trusted though. According to the CDC, when used consistently and correctly latex condoms are ”highly effective” in preventing the sexual transmission of HIV and many other STDs. Highly effective does not mean it is a definite thing. Some people don’t think it’s worth the risk to catch a horrible disease, and they have legitimate concerns. Condoms are also only 98 percent effective in preventing pregnancy when used correctly, every time. So every 100 times you have sex, you have a chance of getting pregnant (or getting someone pregnant) twice. Female contraceptives don’t have any better of a track record. In fact, if you’re using the female condom alone, it’s only 79 percent effective.
