2.Quão often burst condoms?
The studies do not agree on an exact overflow rate. Many studies on the effectiveness of condom counted how often women whose partners used Condoms for birth control and got pregnant. This “failure rate” includes cases where the couple has not used a condom every time they have had intercourse or used condoms incorrectly. Some studies have included the times when the condom was accidentally torn by the people who used it. Studies in other countries on overflow caused by defects in the condom itself show an overflow rate that ranges from 0% to 7%. In the United States, most studies show that the overflow rate is less than 2 for every 100 condoms, probably less than 1 for 100.
(CDC Bulletin, 28 January 1993, also talking about the Truth About Condoms.)
Studies have shown that condoms are 98% effective when used correctly. (J. Trussel; Contraceptive Failure in the United States: An Update, Birth Control Study, 21 (1), 1990.) (Other Studies Show Even Better Effectiveness) So if you're having sex, use a condom, and learn how to use it correctly.
Now about sex education: No scientific study has proven the effectiveness of sexual abstinence. In fact, three studies have shown that education-based abstinence is having no effect; Teenagers continue to have sex. (S. Christopher and M. Roosa, ”An Evaluation of a Teen Pregnancy Prevention Program: And 'Just Say Enough to No'? Family Relations, 39 (1990): 68-72; M. Roosa and S. Christopher Evaluation of a Teenage Abstinence-Single Pregnancy Prevention Program: A Replication, Family Relationships, 39 (1990); 363-367; and SR Jorgensen, V. Potts, and B. Camp, Six-month Follow-up a Pregnancy Prevention Program for Teenagers, Family Relations, 42 (1993): 401-06.)
On the other hand, there is compelling evidence that 'inclusive' or 'reality-based' education (the kind we advocate) is effective. Countries such as England, Wales, France, and the Netherlands that have adapted to fact-based sex education have had teenage pregnancy rates reduced by two to seven times although rates of sexual activity remain approximately the same (50-60 %),! (EF Jones et al., Pregnancy ”Adolescent in Developed Countries: Determinants and Policy Implications.” Birth Control Perspectives, 17 (2), 1985, 53-63.)
So why are people claiming that the exact opposite is true? It is hard to say; but I know there is a very conservative and fanatically religious group who are spreading lies about safe sex and sex education in an effort to impose their moral system around the world without regard for the catastrophic consequences for our lives, freedom, and persecution. of happiness ". Fight back with the facts.
Editor's Note: The truth about condoms is that it can never be proved that encouraging sexual abstinence would be effective against HIV and AIDS. After my seroconversion, I never got back to anyone without the use of condoms, and thanks to that, I never transferred the virus to “another host!
