Indications for Use: Latex condoms reduce the risk of transmitting sexually transmitted infections (STIs) by providing a barrier against the source of the infection. Latex condoms are most effective against STIs such as HIV, chlamydia, and gonorrhea that is spread by contact with the head of the penis. Latex condoms are less effective against STIs such as Human Papillomavirus and Herpes Simplex Virus. These STIs can also be spread by contact with infected skin that is not covered by the condom. Latex condoms are highly effective in preventing pregnancy. To get the most protection from a latex condom, use one correctly every time you have any type of sex. If you believe you have an STI, contact a healthcare provider or public health agency. For more information on latex condoms, STIs, or pregnancy, contact a health care provider or a public health agency.
