CONDOM EFFECTIVE ?
Jan 30, 2012
Reading some internet sites say condoms are very effective and stopping the transmission of HIV. I have seen figures of 85%-95% effective. What does very effective mean - does it mean that if the condom does not break then its 95% ? meaning even if a condom doesnt break there is still a 5% chance of being infected ? Had protected sex with csw all sore throat and headache 7 days later for one week ? Does this mean protecte sex is still risky even though condom did not break ?
Response from Mr. Cordova
If the condom did not break or fall off, then I would say it effectively protected you against HIV. I hope this helps!
