Condoms when used with water-based lubricant can reduce the risk of getting or passing on an STI or BBV as they stop the exchange of sexual fluids. Unfortunately condoms may not protect you from getting herpes, genital warts or crabs.
- Use a new condom with lube every time you have sex.
- Condoms do come in different sizes and shapes.
- Condoms prevent pregnancy as well as STI's and BBV's.
