7 Simple But Proven Advantages of Condoms

Condoms are one of the most popular contraception methods in use today, offering a host of benefits that other methods simply cannot match.

Whilst there are a million reasons to use a condom (and not many reasons not to!), here’s our pick of the seven top advantages of condoms.

  1. Condoms are one of the few contraception methods that can protect against Sexually Transmitted Infections (STIs).
  2. With proper use condoms are 98% effective in preventing pregnancy.
  3. Condoms are easy to use and, unlike other methods such as the IUD,  don’t require any assistance from health professionals to administer.
  4. Condoms are very cheap! The average cost does vary around the world. Here in Australia condoms cost on average $0.5-1 each which is a lot cheaper than a lifetime of medication… and children.
  5. Condoms are readily available without prescription online, at local supermarkets, pharmacies, service stations, toilet vending machines and family planning clinics.
  6. Condoms don’t impact fertility, unlike other contraception methods, such as the IUD and the pill. This makes them the ideal choice for younger people who may want a family in the future.
  7. Condoms can be fun too! They’re available in a wide range of shapes, sizes, colours and flavours that can add to your experience!
