Specializes in Obstetrics and Gynecology

Reexamination of HIV seroconversion studies suggests that condoms are 90 to 95% effective when used consistently, i.e. Consistent condom users are 10 to 20 times less likely to become infected when exposed to the virus than are inconsistent or non-users. Though imperfect, condoms provide substantial protection against HIV infection.
