Let’s set the record straight. If you're having sex, condoms are the only form of protection that can help stop the transmission of STIs and at the same time prevent unplanned pregnancies.
Some things to think about:
- You can’t tell if someone has an STI based on how they look, where they’re from or who they have slept with.
- Planning ahead and taking condoms with you, means you’ll not have to worry later.
- Think its awkward asking your partner to wear a condom? Imagine finding out you’ve got an STI…
- Using a condom provides you with peace of mind and lets you enjoy the process!
- Condoms can prevent you from catching HIV
- People with STIs often don’t know they’re infected, so protect yourself just in case.
