    Although the risk of HIV infection can be reduced through the careful use of condoms, condoms are only partially successful in blocking the transmission of the virus. Actually, there is very little “safe sex” that can be practiced by a person infected with HIV. A meta-analysis of condom effectiveness in reducing sexually transmitted HIV About two-thirds of the people with AIDS in the United States got the disease during sexual intercourse with an infected partner. Experts believe that many of these people could have avoided the disease by using condoms. Condoms are used for both birth control and reducing the risk of disease. That's why some people think that other forms of birth control -- such as the IUD, diaphragm, cervical cap or pill -- will protect them against diseases, too. But that's not true. So if you use any other form of birth control, you still need a condom in addition to reduce the risk of getting sexually transmitted diseasesA condom is especially important when an uninfected pregnant woman has sex, because it can also help protect her and her unborn child from a sexually transmitted disease.
