What are male condoms?


A condom is a thin rubber (latex or polyurethane) balloon that fits over the penis when the penis is erect. The condom stops sperm from entering the vagina, so it prevents pregnancy.  Condoms are 98% effective in preventing pregnancy if used correctly (every time a couple has sex). Because sexually transmitted infections (STIs) are passed on through fluids mixing during vaginal, oral or anal sex, condoms also protect against these infections. In fact, male condoms and female condoms are the only kind of contraception that provides protection against STIs.
