At Budhwarpeth — Use of two condoms at same time??

At Budhwarpeth, Pune The Sex Workers Have Started Using 2 Condoms 1 Upon The Other  (Latex)Delux Nirodh ,If Its Not Torn While Having Sex Can It Infect Us , Means I Want To Ask You That Do The Latex Condoms If Not Torn Are 100% Protection From Hiv ???
Can The Condoms Have Small Holes ???


Dear friend,

Thank you for trusting me with your question.

Condoms cannot provide 100% protection against HIV or other diseases. But still, Latex condoms are very effective protecting against of HIV, Sexually transmitted infections (STIs) and pregnancy, providing upto 99% protection. Sometimes, some manufacturing defect in condoms can leave small holes in a condom and if not found out during quality testing, such condoms can come into the market for sale but such incidences are not very common.

Use of two condoms at the same time is not advisable as fiction between condoms can tear one or both condoms leaving you and sexual partner unprotected from HIV, Sexually transmitted diseases or pregnancy.

Hence, do not use two condoms (one upon the other) as it can cause condoms to tear, leaving you and your sexual partner unprotected. One condom is quite effective on its own hence there is no need to use two condoms at a time.

Hope this clears your doubts. If you have any further questions to ask regarding HIV/AIDS, please feel free to write to me.


Kind regards,

Dr. Punewali
