Less than no use.: This is a barrier contraceptive, and so reduces the risk of contracting these diseases. However, while there is reduction of risk, there remains a smaller, but definite vrisk of transmission. This can be due to mechanical failure, like a small hole, or a mistake in use, or some other reason. Likely the best way to be sure is to get tested with your partner, and then use these, and stay steady.
