Barrier Method Contraception: Condoms
Contraception is a method of family planning as well as being a way to protect yourself and your partner from sexually transmitted infections (STI's). Condoms are the only method of contraception that also protects from the risk of sexually transmitted infections such as genital herpes, HIV, chlamydia and gonorrhoea. A condom creaates a physical barrier between the sperm and the woman's egg, which stops the fertilisation process. The condom traps the sperm after ejaculation, and stops it from entering the vagina thus preventing pregnancy and the sharing of STI's. Condoms have a 98% efficacy of preventing pregnancy, which makes them one of the most reliable forms of contraception. Dermacia stocks a range of Durex condoms, which are one of the best rated worldwide, in additon to Durex lubes and latex free condoms for those who are allergic to latex.
