Does condom help prevent against STDs?

The answer is yes. Since using condoms each time you have oral, anal, or vaginal sex is the best method to reduce your rates of getting or spreading sexually transmitted infections. Condoms protect both of you from STDs by preventing contact with bodily fluids (like semen and vaginal fluids) which can carry infections. And because condoms cover your penis, they help protect against certain STDs like herpes and genital warts that are spread through skin-to-skin contact (but they’re somewhat less effective with these because they don’t cover all your skin).

Please note: if you cut a condom up the side, you can open it out and put it over the vulva for safer oral sex there. Condoms are helpful for both of you!

Condoms are the only way of birth control out there that also help protect against STDs. So even if you’re using another form of birth control (like the pill), it’s a good idea to also use condoms to prevent the spread of sexually transmitted infections.

But you should know condoms made of lambskin or other animal membranes DO NOT protect against STDs — they only prevent pregnancy. Only synthetic condoms (latex or plastic) prevent the spread of STDs. We produce both latex condom and polyurethane condom. Email:
