Dear Girl,

Is it true you can catch STD's having sex with condoms?

Signed Worried!

Dear Worried,

Condoms are the best way of ensuring you don't catch STD's during sex, however they are still not 100% effective. You should not rely on others to take responsibility for condoms, you are the one having sex, so take the lead, and take responsibility.

To make sure that you take the best precautions ensure that:
1. The used by Date on the condoms packet is current
2. The condoms have been kept in a dry or cool place
3. The condom is put on correctly and opened properly

Further information on the use of condoms can be found @ The Victorian Better Health Channel, the Better Health Channel, contains a ton of information of STD's, Sex , the use of condoms, and other health related issues.
