From reading your answers I realize that you feel that condoms are not 100% effective on preventing HIV transmission, even when they are correctly used during all intercourse, and they do not fail or slip. Why do you have that opinion and on what scientific bases do you ground that?
Response from Ms. Southall
Hi Your question actually caused a conversation with the team who answers questions here. And this is the consensus and we all agree on it. Condoms are effective in the prevention of HIV transmission, as long as they are used correctly and do not break or slip off. Also if lubricant is used it must be water based.
Be well and stay safe, Shannon
