Condoms are considered a barrier method that prevents the passage of semen and infectious pathogens by forming a barrier between the male genital area including penile glans and shaft, and the vagina. Its protective value extends to anal or oral intercourse by preventing contact with lesions, vaginal or anal discharges. They are available for both male and female use in different sizes, shapes, colors thickness and texture with or without lubricant. The great variety of choices and options can be appealing to the adolescent population. Only water-based or silicone-based lubricants should be used with latex condoms. Non- onoxynol-9, a spermicide, has been shown to increase the risk of HIV infection, so lubricated condoms with spermicide should not be recommended.
