CONDOM USE
Jan 14, 1998

CAN YOU GET AIDS FROM A WOMAN IF YOU USE 2 CONSDOMS

Response from Mr. Sowadsky

Hi. Thank you for your question. The key to condoms protecting you, is not how many you use, but if you are using them correctly. I have seen men using two, three, four (and even more) condoms at the same time, to protect themselves. This is really unnecessary. All you need to use is one condom, and use it correctly. Using one condom, and using it correctly, will significantly reduce your risk for HIV and other Sexually Transmitted Diseases (STDs). Using more than one condom is really not going to make that big a difference in protecting you. If you want to use more than one condom, that is up to you. But again, the key to condoms protecting you, is not how many you use, but if you are using them correctly. One condom, used correctly, is really all you need.

If you have any further questions, please feel free to call the Centers for Disease Control at 1.800.232.4636 (Nationwide).
