What are the advantages of the male condom?


Male condoms are 98% effective in preventing pregnancy if used correctly.  Most users experience no side effects, unless they are allergic to latex or spermicides.  (In these cases there are special types of condoms that can be used.)  If either partner experiences skin irritation with a latex condom, they should try a non-latex condom due to the possibility of latex allergy. Condoms are widely available in most countries and can be bought without a prescription.  Condoms are the only to prevent sexually transmitted infections. Male condoms also come in a variety of shapes and sizes.
