the survey. In studies by Albert, et al., and by Wright, et al., 36% and 38% of their respondents reported condom failures respectively.” (12) “Cohen, et al., (25) conducted a study in which patients who had contracted an STD were given a condom education course. Within nine months ‘19.9% of the men and 12.6% of the women returned with new STD,’ some multiple times. The STD re-infection rate actually increased for women. Frosner states the U.S. government has withdrawn a $2.6 million grant to study condoms because ‘an unacceptably high number of condom users probably would have been infected in such a study.’ He adds that the only safe sex is mutually monogamous and between two non-infected persons.” (26) 10. “Collart, David G., M.D., loc. cit. 12.Collart, David G., M.D., op. cit. 25.

Collart, " Birth Control- Condom Effectiveness" ______________________ "CDC-HIV/AIDS PREVENTION- FACTS ABOUT CONDOMS AND THEIR USE IN PREVENTING HIV INFECTION AND OTHER STDS" "As these studies indicate, condoms must be used consistently and correctly to provide maximum protection. Consistent use means using a condom from start to finish with each act of intercourse. Correct condom use should include the following steps:” 

“Use a new condom for each act of intercourse.”

“Put on the condom as soon as erection occurs and before any sexual contact (vaginal, anal, or oral).”

“Hold the tip of the condom and unroll it onto the erect penis, leaving space at the tip of the condom, yet ensuring that no air is trapped in the condom's tip.”

“Adequate lubrication is important, but use only water-based lubricants, such as glycerine or lubrication jellies (which can be purchased at any pharmacy). Oil-based lubricants, such as petroleum jelly, cold cream, hand lotion, or baby oil, can weaken the condom.”

“Withdraw from the partner immediately after ejaculation, holding the condom firmly to keep it from slipping off.”
