Hai, Most of the latex condoms are 99% safe if used correctly form the time of insertion to withdrawal. If it is not used properly or using poor quality condoms or expired condoms may likely to get torn and of no use in protecting you either from pregnancy or from HIV/STDs. The air space in the tip of condom should be pressed to empty before introduction. If it is used consistently and correctly it offers 99% protection. The condom uncovered area like pubic area and scroto-crural or Labio-crural folds have the risk of STDs if the contact has lesion over there. Be careful and use correctly.Dr.SM

IF CONDOM OF GOOD QUALITY WITH CAREFULLY PUT ON LEAVING NO AIR SPACE AT TIP AND FULLY COVERING WHOLE PENILE AREA WITH NO LEAKAGE OF SPERN DURING WITHDRAWL AND SPILLAGE OVER VAGINA OR SCROTAL OR LABIAL CRURAL REGION ,CHANCE OF PROTECTION IS 100% ONLY. DONOT FEAR, USE CONDOM AND RELAX.CONDOM IS BEST PROTECTION AVAILABLE FOR HIV AND STDS.EVERY BODY DOING UNPROTECTED SEX SHOULD ALWAYS US,SEE IT IS INTACT AND EXPIRY IS NOT THERE,VAGINAL CONDOM CAN BE USED BY FEMALE ALSO,IT IS ALSO PROTECTIVE,A SMALL TRAINING WILL GIVE GOOD RESULT.
