Do you know how to “get it on” before you get it on. Whether you need a refresher or want tips on how to rethink “The Talk” with a family member, this video provides the facts on using a condom consistently and correctly.
Latex condoms are intended to prevent pregnancy, HIV/AIDS, and other sexually transmitted infections. Latex condoms reduce the risk of transmitting STIs by providing a barrier against the source of the infection. However, they do not completely eliminate the risks of pregnancy and STIs. For additional information on condoms, STI and pregnancy protection, or if you believe you have an STI, contact a health care provider or public health agency.
