Condoms provide little to no protection from the three most common STDs- HPV, Herpes, and Chlamydia (Centers for Disease Control)
The Centers for Disease Control estimate that there are 19 million new STD infections every year, and half of the people who get these STDs are ages 15-24.
Remember: The ONLY sure way to protect yourself against an STD is to abstain from sexual intercourse of any kind, including oral, anal and vaginal sex.
Abstinence prevents the transmission of STDs 100% of the time.
