Cantu & Farish , 1999) These myths are now so History of the Condom widespread that they are recited in Congress and have been incorporated into the sexuality education The earliest known illustration of a man using a programs of more than a third of U.S. schools condom during sexual intercourse is painted on (Darroch et al., 2000; Lerner, 1999; Landry et al., the wall of a cave in France. It is 12,000–15,000 1999). But none of these myths are true. We know that condoms years old (Parisot, 1987). have been used to protect against sexually th As this fact sheet will make clear, the effectiveness century and to transmitted infection since the 16 th of condoms against unintended pregnancy and prevent unwanted pregnancy since the 18 century th sexually transmitted infection has long been (Himes, 1963). Since the 19 century, American established (see below). Further, information about moralists — who have misunderstood or denied its and access to condoms clearly do not increase public health benefits — have attacked condom use sexual activity among adolescents (Kirby, 1997; (Brodie, 1994). Schuster et al., 1998). One World Health Organization review of 19 studies found no evidence As a result, those who promoted an abstinence- that sexuality education programs lead to earlier or until-marriage agenda stymied public health increased sexual activity among teens (NCHSTP, efforts toward increased condom use in the U.S th 1996). century. During World War I, for most of the 20 for example, U.S. allies, including New Zealand, But easy access to condoms does encourage gave their troops condoms to prevent sexually condom use among teens that are already sexually transmitted infection. But social hygienists in the active (Blake et al., 2003). A study of more than U.S. forced the American Expeditionary Forces to 4,000 sexually active adolescents showed that adopt a chastity campaign — they were opposed to condom use at sexual debut is associated with a any prophylactic prevention of sexually transmitted twofold increased likelihood of subsequent condom infection . Consequently, in 1919 alone, U.S. troops use (Shafii et al., 2004). In fact, adolescents who reported a yearly admissions rate of 766.55 per use condoms the first time they have vaginal 1,000 for sexually transmitted infection (Brandt, intercourse do not have more partners, are more 1985, ). likely to protect themselves and their partners, and are less likely to get an STI than adolescents who In the last several years, certain anti-choice don’t use condoms the first time they have vaginal radicals have even distorted scientific fact in intercourse (Shafii et al., 2007). And teens need order to discourage condom use. Three myths protection — more than 60 percent of young women propagated in this anti-condom misinformation and men in the United States have had sexual campaign are particularly dangerous. The first myth intercourse by the age of 19 (Hebernick et al., 2010). purports that talking about condoms or giving people condoms will make them sexually promiscuous (Hartigan, 1997). The second claims that condoms cause AIDS because HIV allegedly passes through microscopic pores in the latex (A.L.L.) The third . blames condoms for cervical cancer (Lerner, 1999;

2 2 The truth about condoms is that they offer the Condom Effectiveness (Stone et best protection for the sexually active al., 1999; CDC, 1998). Condoms are effective because they block contact with body fluids that cause pregnancy and sexually Nevertheless, scientifically based information transmitted infection. Most reports of condom failure about condoms that was available on ent or incorrect use, not are the result of inconsist government health websites has been either breakage (Macaluso et al., 1999). A recent study of taken down or replaced with politically driven, college students found that condom use errors were censored pages that emphasize abstinence and very common — 40 percent of the young men have an exaggerated focus on the potential risks surveyed reported that, within the previous three . For example, the Centers for of condom use months, they had not left space for ejaculate at the Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) website tip of a condom, and 15 percent had taken a expunged information showing that education about condom off before completing intercourse (Crosby et condoms does not result in increased or earlier al., 2002). In the U.S., the actual breakage rate is a sexual activity (Clymer, 2002). low two per 100 condoms (CDC, 1998). High failure rates in some studies occur because Condom Use Is a National Public Health Goal many people over-report contraceptive use to shift the responsibility for an unintended pregnancy to a The U.S. Public Health Service has included “faulty” contraceptive . Such over-reporting artificially increased condom use as an objective in its Healthy inflates failure rates (Trussell, 1998). Condom People 2000 and 2020 campaigns to promote health failure rates are also inflated because some young and prevent disease. The federal government plans to people have been shown to inaccurately report “increase the proportion of sex ually active persons 15 to condom uses, use condoms incorrectly, and 19 years who use condoms to both effectively prevent respond to survey questions with what they perceive pregnancy and provide barrier protection against to be socially desirable answers (Rose et al., 2009). disease at first intercourse and at last intercourse In fact, most people who use condoms do not In fact, condom use among (DHHS, 2010).” experience breakage or slippage. Most condom adolescent women and men has increased from failures occur among a minority of users because 1991 to 2010, during which time 58.1 percent of they are less experienced and/or less careful about women and 79.1 percent of men reported using using condoms than more successful users (Steiner condoms at last intercourse. And black and Latino et al., 1993, Steiner et al., 1994). women and men report more condom use than their white counterparts (Reece et al., 2010). Condoms as Birth Control In June 2000, a number of federal agencies including the CDC, National Institutes of Health Condoms are an effective, inexpensive form of (NIH), U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA), . Of 100 women whose partners use birth control and the U.S. Agency for International Development condoms inconsistently or imperfectly, 18 will (USAID) sponsored a workshop to look at the become pregnant in the first year of use.

Additional advantages of method for sexually active people to prevent STIs. It condoms as birth control include low cost, easy states that research shows condoms to be effective access, simple disposal, minimal side effects, and against pregnancy, HIV, and gonorrhea, and that longer-lasting sex play. Using condoms can also while there is research that finds condoms to be enhance sexual pleasure by reducing anxieties , more research needs to effective against other STIs about the risk of infection and pregnancy (Warner & be conducted to more firmly establish condom Hatcher, 1998). In fact, the CDC, efficacy (NIAID et al., 2001). which is the agency responsible for prevention messages, continues to promote condom use Condoms and Fertility for general STI protection (CDC, 2004).

3 3 Condoms can help protect fertility by preventing urethral fluids, and genital sores ( CDC, 2004; transmission of sexually transmitted infections, such Judson et al., 1989; Cates & Stone, 1992). as chlamydia and gonorrhea, that cause infertility. Women whose partners use condoms are at much Herpes lower risk of hospitalization for pelvic inflammatory disease — a condition that causes infertility — than Herpes simplex virus (HSV) type 2 causes those whose partners do not (Kelaghan et al., 1982). genital herpes. Studies have shown that And women whose partners use condoms are at 30 opposite sex couples who used condoms percent less risk of infertility due to sexually during one out of four acts of intercourse transmitted infection (Cramer et al., 1987). reduced the risk of infection with HSV 2 for the woman — but not the man — by 92 percent. Infection was even rarer among Condoms and Sexually Transmitted Infection women and men who used condoms during every act of intercourse (Holmes et al., 2004) Condoms offer effective protection against most The Centers for Disease Control and serious sexually transmitted infections by Prevention has long recommend condom preventing the exchange of body fluids (Cates & usage as a way to reduce the risk of herpes Stone, 1992; CDC, 1998; Stone et al . , 1999). Such infections (CDC, 1998). In fact, using fluids — semen, genital discharge, or infectious condoms for every act of intercourse secretions — are the primary routes of transmission significantly reduces the risk of infection (Stone et al., 1999). While latex condoms may not (Wald, 2005). completely prevent skin-to-skin contact, they offer the best protection possible because the glans and shaft of the penis are the major portals of exit and . ed infections (Stone et al entry of sexually transmitt , HIV 1999).

The condom is recognized as a highly effective Condoms and Bacterial Infections barrier against HIV infection (CDC, 2004). Condoms offer good protection against sexually transmitted bacterial infection — chlamydia, Condom-use opponents, however, gonorrhea, trichomoniasis, and syphilis (Stone have manipulated the findings of et al., 1999; Judson et al., 1989). During the flawed laboratory tests to create 1980s, genital chlamydia became the most prevalent public doubt about the condom’s bacterial STI in the U.S., and by 1996 there were an . For effectiveness against HIV estimated three million new cases — this made example, one study erroneously ly reported infectious chlamydia the most frequent concluded that latex condoms leak HIV disease in the country (KFF, 1998). A 2006 review virus even though it used particles that of the literature on condom use to prevent were 100 million times smaller than the transmission of chlamydia and gonorrhea found that HIV particles found in semen (Stone et most studies associated condom use with al., 1999). In fact, the risk of HIV demonstrable risk reduction (Warner et al., 2006). transmission with a condom is reduced Increased condom use will help reduce the — as much as 10,000-fold (Carey et . incidence of all these infections (Stone et al , 1999; al., 1992; Cavalieri d’Oro et al., 1994; Cates & Stone, 1992).

Most HPV In contrast, the incidence of HIV infections are short-lived, and many women appear infection was 14 percent with to develop immunity to different HPV infections. inconsistent use (Deschamps et al., Nearly a third of women may recover from the 1996). A similar study that followed infection within six months. Persistent infection and couples for an average of 20 months reinfection seems to be the higher risk factor for found there were no new cases of cervical cancer (Ho, et al., 1998). infection among couples who used condoms consistently (de Vincenzi, The claims of condom use opponents regarding 1994). Another study found that HPV are false and alarmis t. Condom use cannot be among a group of couples who used blamed for the high prevalence of HPV or cervical condoms consistently, two percent of cancer among women in the U.S. In fact, studies the uninfected part ners contracted HIV have shown an association between condom use over the course of the two-year study. and a reduced risk of HPV-associated diseases, This contrasts with 12 percent of including cervical cancer (CDC, 2004). As stated partners who became infected in above, condom use has been shown to clear HPV couples that reported inconsistent or no infections and the abnormal cell growth they cause condom use (Saracco et al., 1993).

While condoms may not transmission and condoms found an eliminate the risk of transmitting the HPVs that average efficacy rate of 87 percent cause cancer, the CDC recommends condoms for against HIV infection. However, risk reduction (CDC, 1998). efficacy rates can range from 60 percent to 96 percent (Davis & Weller, Failure to use condoms has been shown to be 1999). among the most significant risk factors for pre- cancerous conditions related to certain types of HPV (Wang & Lin, 1996).

One other pathogens, but two recent Dutch popular myth is that using more than one condom at studies have found that condom use a time — double bagging — will cause condoms to has been shown to clear HPV break. infections in women as well as the abnormal cell growths they cause on Even popular wisdom among health educators has it the cervix and penis (Hogewoning et that double bagging — using more than one condom al., 2003; Bleeker et al., 2003). at a time — is not more effective than using just one, and doing so may cause condom breakage. Wikipedia, for example, asserts that double bagging breaks condoms (Wikipedia, 2009). Many online health information resources, including,, and the Texas Department of State Health HPV and Cervical Cancer Services, make the same assertion (, 2008;, 2008; TDSHS, 2008).
