whether condoms prevent sexually transmitted diseases
A recent U.S. gov't report is creating lots of controversy about whether condoms prevent sexually transmitted diseases.
The report is accurate. But some news coverage and groups with political agendas wrongly interpret it to mean that condoms don't work.
A panel of experts reviewed over 100 studies on condom use to find that condoms reduce the risk of HIV transmission by 85%...and reduce the transmission of gonorrhea in men.
