Do condoms prevent syphilis?
Asked in Chlamydia
Can condoms prevent chlamydia and syphilis?
Condoms, used correctly and consistently, do a good job at reducing the risk of chlamydia, since that infection is spread by fluids. If you often have difficulty with broken condoms, or condoms falling off, they'll be less effective. Syphilis is spread by skin-to-skin contact. If the syphilis lesion(s) are covered by the condom, or the condom prevents contact with the lesions, syphilis won't be spread.
How do you prevent syphilis?
Either abstain from sex, or ALWAYS use condoms If your partner doesn't have it, or abstinence. If they do have syph, they need antibiotics to get it treated, but use a condom (which isn't a 100% guarantee) Condoms are helpful, but are not 100% effective, particularly with diseases like syphilis that spread via skin to skin contact.
