What kind of condom best use for HIV?

May 31, 2008

To Whom It May Concern,

My friend and I would very much like to know what kind of best condom for HIV protect?



Response from Dr. Frascino

Hello Colleen,

I'd suggest you read through the archives of this forum. There you will learn all about condoms, safer sexual practices and HIV prevention. To briefly respond to your question, either latex or polyurethane condoms can be used to prevent HIV. Natural or lambskin condoms protect against pregnancy, but not HIV.
