Dr. Jones shares if condoms can protect a woman from getting the Human Papillomavirus/HPV virus.
Condoms protect women 70% of the time if they use condoms 100% of the time, 100% correctly. It’s only 70% because HPV is skin-to-skin contact. It’s not sexually transmitted through fluid, and so if you just had skin-on-skin contact and there’s no condom that goes over the whole body, you can still acquire HPV and you can get HPV on the vaginal tissue, on the vulvar tissue and on the cervical tissue. You can get it pretty much all over the female genitalia. Unfortunately condoms are not 100%.
