|risk of infection with condoms
Dec 18, 2000
what are the chances of a positive male infecting a negative female during intercourse with a condom every time?
Response from Dr. Remien
When a condom is used consistently, the risk of infection is very low. Studies have repeatedly shown that consistent and CORRECT condom use prevents the transmission of HIV within mixed status couples, in most cases. Nobody can tell you that it is impossible for it to occur, but short of abstinence, consistent condom use is the best HIV prevention.
