Consistent and correct use of latex condoms or internal condoms is associated with a significant reduction in the combined incidence of gonorrhea, chlamydia, and syphilis in women considered to be at high-risk for contracting STIs 2, 3, 4. It is recommended to protect yourself and your partner by using condoms during penis-vagina sex, oral sex, or anal sex. Sexually transmitted infections, including HIV, syphilis, herpes, gonorrhoea, HPV, trichomoniasis, and chlamydia, can all still be passed on during oral sex 5.
