Condoms have pores that don’t prevent Common STD’s?

by Rachel on April 17, 2011

Not that I’m sexually active or anything but I read in a recent study that condoms have small pores that actually don’t prevent common STDS like cyphilis, chlamydia and especially the Human Papilloma Virus.

What are your opinions on this?

Ehem, condoms only prevent 99.9% of the time of you becoming pregnant.

That’s their only use!
BEWARE >:D!

Nothing surprises me anymore when it comes to things like this. This just goes to show what I’ve always said, condoms don’t protect 100%. Best thing to do is be abstitant and get tested on a regular basis if you’re sexually active.

Kinda sucks huh?

They prevent 99% of those STD’s. you are misrepresenting the facts.

This is an overstatement if I’ve ever read one. Condom DO prevent most STDs. The only type of condom that should be avoided are the sheep/lamb ones. They do allow some nasties through.

Why did you not cite that study….instead you linked to the FDA who says that a condom is not 100% effective in preventing STD’s but when used properly will reduce your chances of getting one…there is NOTHING on that website regarding your statement about condoms

That is a bold faced, Abstonance Only, Bible Thumpping LIE!

There are OTHER ways of getting some STD’s…

Like HPV and Herpies can be transmitted by touch… Meaning, if you have a cold sore, you can trasmit it to your partner with hand to genital contact…

And you can get ORAL AND ANAL HPV if you don’t use a condom…

But 100% “vanilla” sex?

As long as you use the condom PROPERLY, you should have a 99% chance of avoiding transmission of STD’s…

That 1% is for the chance of manufacturer defects and stupid people that don’t know how to use them correctly…

My opinion is that you should cite the study that you read and not refer to a site that encourages the use of condoms for the prevention of disease.

Clearly I did not spent my evening reading the ENTIRE site so could you direct me to where you found this information?

Are you referring to LATEX condoms? Are you Bible thumping?

Certainly you need to educate yourself
