In this episode, sexual health nurse Alison everything you ever wanted to know about condoms.
As Educators, we are frequently asked to talk about condoms in our classes. Upper primary school children often have questions about them. Secondary school students get a lot more information about what condoms are, what they are used for and how to use them. We also discuss how to talk to young people about what to do if sex without a condom happens. Condoms are the only type of contraception that protects against both STI’s (sexually transmissible infections) and pregnancy. This is important information for everyone to know before they have a sexual experience. Enjoy!
Access a wealth of information about condoms the FPV website or on the Kidshealth site. For more information about the sexual behaviour of young Australians have a look at the 6th National Survey of Australian Secondary Students and Sexual Health 2019. by Australian Research Centre into Sex Health and Society at La Trobe University.
