Need an Explanation

Mar 9, 2004

Hello there,

I know that condoms are highly effective in preventing HIV infection, BUT at the same time people complain of its failiar to prevent pregnancy.

Thanks in advance

Response from Mr. Spinks

Hello reader, Fortunately, condoms have been proven to greatly reduce a person's risk for HIV, STD's and pregnancy. In a nutshell, when condoms aren't effective we don't use them correctly, wear them consistently or store them adequately. In order to be good at anything, you must practice!!! I encourage people to practice putting on condoms and to read the directions carefully. Take care and be safe!!
