Condom Efficacy and Use
Info for Parents about Condoms Print

Parent-child communication about sex can help young people to gain the knowledge, skills and confidence to protect themselves when they do become sexually active. Research shows that young people who spoke with their parents about condoms and contraception before they became sexually active were more likely to use protection when they did become sexually active. Further research shows that talking about sex does not cause young people to become sexually active.
