Any reason for monogamous HIV- couples to use condoms?
Mar 9, 2003

I understand that HIV- couples who dont use condoms may risk infection should one of them get HIV from a third party. However assuming hypothetically that both healthy partners remain faithful, is there any medical reason whatsoever for them to use condoms during sex, for example risk of infection, irritation to the penis, etc.?

Response from Dr. Frascino

Hello,

"Assuming hypothetically that both healthy partners remain faithful," is there any medical reason whatsoever for them to use condoms during sex? Well, sure. How about for preventing an unwanted pregnancy? As for risk of sexually transmitted diseases, no, this would be "hypothetically" impossible. You can't transmit what you don't have. Irritation to the penis? What? Just how rough do you think the inside of a vagina is? No, I'm quite sure you will either cum or tire out long before there is any chance of significant irritation . . . . hypothetically speaking, of course.
