Condoms – Effective Prevention of Pregnancy

There are various types of birth control available to couples wanting to avoid pregnancy. Of all of these methods only
condoms offer a high degree of protection against infection by HIV and other STDs (Sexually Transmitted Diseases) at the same time as providing highly effective prevention of unwanted pregnancy.

But just how effective are condoms at preventing pregnancy, and what are some of the factors that have a bearing on their effectivenesss?

Effectiveness of Condoms in Preventing Unintended or Unwanted Pregnancy

When determining condom effectiveness, it is important to recognize that, as with 콘돔 all methods of contraception,
the effectivness of condoms decreases when they are not used correctly. According to one large study, “In one year, only two of every 100 couples who use condoms consistently and correctly will experience an unintended pregnancy – two pregnancies arising from an estimated 8,300 acts of sexual intercourse, for a 0.02 percent per-condom pregnancy rate.”

Other studies that do not measure for incorrect use, but only for “regular use”, indicate that the pregnancy rate may be as high as 15% of couples. But this number is skewed because it includes improper use. The main reason that condoms sometimes fail to prevent pregnancy is incorrect or inconsistent use, not the failure of the condom itself.
