Condoms are an effective form of barrier contraception and if used correctly can be 98% effective in preventing pregnancy. Condoms also protect against sexually transmitted infections (STIs) including HIV, the virus which can lead to AIDS. Condoms are not 100% effective however and they can occasionally break or split during sexual intercourse, leaving you at risk of pregnancy or contracting an STI. However, there are steps that you can take to minimise the damage if a condom breaks.
