Test Yourself: Condom Facts

April is National STD Awareness Month. Statistics tell us that by the age of 25, roughly half of all sexually active people will have an STD. That's a pretty alarming statistic! While abstinence is the only 100% effective way to avoid STDs and pregnancy, the truth is that abstinence just isn't right for everyone. If you do choose to have sex, be sure to use a condom every time. It is the only birth control method that not only helps protect you from potential pregnancy, but also reduces the risk of contracting an STD. So before you slip into bed with a partner, make sure you or your partner slips on something else. Test your condom knowledge here!
