From what a condom is able to protect, and whether it is possible to catch an infection without having sexual intercourse.
Some people do not consider using condoms if they are married, considering them only as a protection against unwanted pregnancy. Indeed, compared to other contraceptives, such as birth control pills, an IUD, and even an interrupted sexual intercourse, the condom is the most reliable. In addition, some of the above contraceptives may have contraindications, as well as unpleasant and even dangerous consequences, so they should be used only after examination by doctors.
Do not forget (and this is the most important thing) that a condom is also a method of protecting against sexually transmitted diseases. Here, the couple may have a conflict on the basis of mistrust, because many people mistakenly believe that it is possible to catch the infection only through sexual intercourse, which means that one of the partners, most likely the one who spoke about the condom, absolutely does not trust his wife and suspects him of infidelity. In fact, you can get infected not only through the bed. The fact is that viruses can be picked up in a public toilet, and the infection is not only on the toilet seat, in the bath, pool, during a visit to the beauty salon or when drawing a tattoo. In general, partners have reasons to fear and protect themselves, even if they are confident in each other for 100%.
Often and regularly check your body for the presence of infections of time, not enough for everyone, so it happens that the couple are infected with a virus that develops differently in the body of each, and with the next sex, partners exchange new viruses. Of course, one of the most terrible such viruses is HIV infection, which can develop in the body unnoticed for a very long time. And often it happens that one partner infects another by ignorance, after which the state of both worsens. This is perhaps one of the main reasons for using a condom, because it reduces the risk of infection by 80%, compared with the risk of unprotected sex. Hence, the probability of obtaining a virus during sexual contact using a condom is less than 1%. But in any case, it is necessary and necessary to regularly take an HIV test to be sure that not only you, but your loved one, are not at risk.
But this, of course, is far from all unpleasant consequences. Using a condom significantly reduces the likelihood of infection with gonorrhea, papillomavirus and genital herpes. In addition, thanks to this contraceptive, you will not become infected with chlamydia and trichomoniasis during sexual intercourse, by the way, these diseases can be picked up by the way of life. Therefore, the fact that one of the spouses discovered these infections in themselves does not at all mean that this person “walks to the left.”
A condom can protect not only from infectious diseases. According to some researchers, this method of contraception reduces the risk of oncology in humans, especially in the prevention of cervical cancer. Scientists explain this by the fact that semen contains a certain hormone that can increase the likelihood of oncological diseases.
Therefore, even in a conjugal relationship, do not neglect the use of a condom. This does not mean that you do not believe each other, rather, it is a way to prove your care and love once again.
