Condom use rises in the US

Yet only 19 percent of men reported using a condom every time they had sex in the past year, while almost 50 percent reported never using a condom during sex in the past year, according to the CDC report. But even so, when you break the numbers down by age, only 53 percent of guys aged 15 to 19 were using a condom every time they had sex.

"Almost 7 percent of women aged 15-44 who used a condom in the past four weeks said the condom broke or completely fell off during intercourse or withdrawal, and 25.8 percent said the condom was used for only part of the time during intercourse", they added.

However, the condom used did not always work.

Condoms are the only way to protect against both sexually transmitted infections and pregnancy during sex. And yeah, that doesn't sound incredibly impressive, but when you take into account that only 33.7 percent of men reported using a condom during their last sexual encounter in the newest report, and an increase is an increase no matter how small.well, it's still not that impressive.

Copen believes that the low rate of condom use reported by women compared with men might be because of the availability of a variety of contraceptive choices for women, such as implants and intrauterine devices (IUDs) as well as birth control pills.

Although there is no significant increase in the women's report of male condom use from the 2002 survey, prior studies indicate an increase in the use of other female contraceptives. Last year, the CDC reported that chlamydia, gonorrhea, and syphilis infections were at an all-time high, and rising.

Almost 60 percent of women and more than 47 percent of men studied said they did not use a condom at all during sex in the last 12 months. It goes into great detail about health and lifestyle habits but does not inquire about why someone did or did not use a condom. Almost 7 percent of women studied who had had sex within the previous four weeks said that the condom either broke or fell off completely during sex or withdrawal.

The researchers also mentioned that the problems of condom use will in more detailed be analyzed in future.
